An original anime titled Project D was announced by Kadokawa at its Anime Expo booth on Saturday. A promotional video revealed partial staff for the anime.

Staff
Director: Takuya Satou (Steins;Gate)
Character Design: Yoshitoshi Abe (Serial Experment Lain)

The original anime centers on technology developer Delida, who wakes up in the future from a cold sleep, but with his girlfriend missing. In order to keep his promise with her, he decides to return to "that incident" from 10 years ago. The key to regain her is a time leap.

Oh man, oh man. Lots of potential for this one here, and I hope it lives up to the hype of the PV.

Seeing Takuya Satou being a part of it makes me even more optimistic. Work your magic!

Might be.

Anyways, I'm pretty interested in this with that staff (so far anyway) and premise.

The bland title makes it seem like as if it's a temporary one. But the staff is great and the PV is decent so I have moderate hopes for this one. I wonder who's the animating studio? The PV and description makes it seem like a more sci-fi take on BokuMachi's premise

Judging by how they introduced the director with having work in WIXOSS anime, this one is produced by J.C. Staff. I am sure of it. Anyway, not much impression from the PV except it had a pretty dark tone.

Got kind of excited by the title thinking it might be an original Initial D spin-off project or something, lost all interest when reading that synopsis.

I also remembered K when I saw the title x)

I just see the PV, it look great... Maybe I will check. I'm really curious about the choice of voice actors for this anime :3

I honestly thought this was going to be related to the Initial D series when I read that title. Then I watched the PV and saw the year "2060". OK, could Takumi Fujiwara still be alive and doing street racing at that year? :P

OK so this looks like it's going to be a time travel / time leap series of sorts. I'm curious about this now. The staff looks promising already.

Shame Abe's designs aren't what they used to be.
I really like the older styles, these ones don't seem anywhere near as distinct.

When I read SEL and Texhnolyze I thought "Ok, apparently they are trying to make a brutal sci-fi but watered down with cute characters, romance and a time-leap a la Steins;Gate." Then I took a look at the director and it said he did Steins;Gate. Why am I not surprised...
Apparently the character designer is the same as in SEL and Texhnolyze. I wouldn't have guessed it just looking at the art. It looks completely different so advertising with SEL and Texhnolyze seems kind of pointless to me, no?

Deja vu
I've just been in this place before
Higher on the street
And I know it's my time to go
Calling you, and the search is a mystery
Standing on my feet
It's so hard when I try to be me, woah

I had to do it.
Anyway I hope is going to be a good anime.

If you told me those were ABe designs I wouldn't believe you...what happened to his art style? It looks totally generic and indistinguishable now. And the PV didn't really grab my attention either. I really hope it's good though, I want it to be. Just seeing the word 'Texhnolyze' in the PV made me happy.
I just want Despera already...

God damn what have they done to you ABe. Please tell me he's locked up somewhere with a gun to his head. If I have to see one more minute of time travel nonsense...Despera is never coming, is it?

Out of all yesterday’s announcements (and PVs), this is the only that caught my attention... I don’t really care much about the director as I do about Yoshitoshi Abe to be honest.

Hopefully Abe will be one doing the series composition and script as well, and not just the designs.

Agree... while watching the PV, the designs never struck me as “unique” as his older works. They felt a bit typical; not bad, but not great either.

Do you remember the series Your Lie in April by director Ishiguro Kyohei? He directed Occultic Nine in the same studio, A-1 Pictures, and the series was a mess in several respects. Watch out for Hype just because of the director.

wew a timeleap will save her. Hopefully Yoshitoshi has more to do with this anime than character design.
