It has been announced via noitaminA lineup event for years 2018-2019 on Thursday that a new anime programming block, +Ultra, will begin in Fall 2018.

Ingress (Fall 2018)
It was announced that a TV anime based from an augmented-reality game of the same name by studio Craftar titled Ingress will be produced by Fuji TV and game developer Niantic, known to release the "Pokemon GO" game. The 3DCG anime, directed by Yuuhei Sakuragi (Soutai Sekai), will air via +Ultra block in Fall 2018.

Synopsis
A project was launched where scientists discovered a mysterious substance that can interface directly with the human brain. This substance, called "Exotic Matter (XM)," has existed since ancient times, influencing human minds and the progress of humanity. In the wake of this discovery, a battle of powerful nations and corporate giants has been unleashed. Organizations across the globe have embarked on a secret race to exploit XM. It represents both an opportunity and a threat to humanity. Two Factions seeks to control the XM. The Enlightened view XM's power as a gift that enhances human experience and discovery. The Resistance sees XM as a hostile takeover of the human mind, choosing technology as humanity's best path forward. XM, and the mystery behind it lie at the center of this battle for the fate of humanity.

2018—Now, a new struggle is about to unfold in Tokyo and across the globe. Dangerous and powerful forces seeking to exploit the potential of XM will collide. This groundbreaking project will mark the beginning of an epic augmented-reality experience combining the three elements of animation, location-based gaming, and the real world.

Revisions (Winter 2019)
Revisions join the +Ultra anime block by studio Shirogumi. It will be a 3DCG production.

Synopsis
"This is a prophecy for you, where five people will meet huge adversaries, and only you can protect everyone." Daisuke Toujima is a second-year high school student who was abducted when he was young. He was involved in a special phenomenon—Shibuya Drift—with his childhood friends Gai, Ru, Marimari, and Keisaku. They were transferred to the center of Shibuya over 300 years into the future. What's waiting for them is endless wilderness and forest, Interspersed ruin, future citizens, and "Revisions" which are huge mechanical monsters. Trampled by the monsters without understanding the situation, a girl who has the same name as the person who saved Daisuke when he was abducted, Miro, provided a mobile suit "String Puppet" and told them to save Shibuya. With separated paths, adversaries, destined prophecies, the boys, and girls are on their journey to return to their original time.

The one I look forward to the most is Carol & Tuesday especially from Bones and Shinichiro Watanabe.

Not sure how I feel about Ingress and Revision honestly. Ingress' premise does sound interesting though. As for Revisions, I hope they get the CG part right.

Interesting projects to say the least. Hopefully the ones in 3DCG will look decent. Could go either way, really.

Nope. Looks like Fuji TV will air both. They just decided to create one more block instead of expanding Noitamina again.

Wtf, Ingress getting an anime? Now I've seen everything. I hope it gets the game some popularity. It deserves it, even if Niantic is shit.

Revision's premise does sounds interesting but that 3dCG PV didn't hype me. Looks like Code Geass R3 will delay to 2020 :O

imo Carol & Tuesday is something to look forward especially its original anime working by Bones and Shinichiro Watanabe

I do not care about Ingress anime. I expect Revisions to be a messy anime, considering the director. As for Carol & Tuesday, definitey excited for this one, though still not sure if I am going to watch it or not.

INGRESS?
What in tarnation
Of all game adaptations this is the least expected. I played it few months after it came out, but got bored.
I' m really curious how they will adapt it, though.

I don't know anything about Carol & Tuesday, but it's Bones and Watanabe. I have no reason not to be hyped.

Hopefully Carol and Tuesday is CGDCT, Revisions might be ok since it' a mecha.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me
