An official website opened for the previously announced original anime series Project D on Monday. Formally titled RErideD: Tokigoe no Derrida (RErideD: Derrida, who leaps through time), the anime will be directed by Takuya Satou (Steins;Gate) and feature original character designs by Yoshitoshi Abe (Serial Experiments Lain). The series is scheduled to broadcast this year.

The year is 2050. Young engineer Derrida Yvain became famous thanks to his contribution with the development of "Autonomous Machine DZ" at Rebuild, the manufacturing company founded by his father. One day, Derrida and his colleague Nathan find a serious flaw in the "DZ"s and try to warn their boss but are ignored. Although aware of the danger, they reluctantly decide to put off taking any measures and go to Nathan's daughter Mage's birthday party.

Next day, after spending a peaceful time, Derrida and Nathan are suddenly attacked by unknown forces. At the end of escape, Derrida falls into a cold sleep machine and 10 years later, he wakes up to a devastated world in the middle of a war. Being attacked by a group out of control "DZ"s, Derrida almost gives up but he recalls Nathan's last words:

"Take care of Mage."

Despite the harsh fate that has fallen upon him, Derrida sets off to seek Mage.

Beyond the time, we reunite—This is the story of a journey for hope. (Source: Official site, edited)

There are times when the PV looked pretty good and some scenes that are a major turn off. Nevertheless, looks pretty interesting. OST was nice as well

Kenji Konuta is a pretty big hit or miss .... but it looks interesting tho.

I could see this suddenly being announced for Summer.

Not gonna lie.. It's visually eerie yet.. very disappointing.. plus the PV only hinted as an ad.. Take chances since ABe's aesthetic designs are usually my kind of forte

So this is Project D? Honestly, it looks like a clusterfuck (which tends to be an issue with a lot of anime-original stuff). But it could turn out to be good, idk.

Seeing the name Derrida perks my ears. If anyone doesn’t know, he is a famous and influential philosopher who is known for “developing a form of semiotic analysis known as deconstruction,” (source: Wikipedia) among other things. He is also infamous for being incredibly verbose.

I wonder if this series will have anything to do with him or his works/ideas, or if the creators just thought it sounds cool.

this looks like it could be decent or awful, but its worth keeping an eye on, that director's catalog is absurdly mixed.

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

Honestly no expectations other than liking Abe. Granted all he is doing is character design so idk. Honestly just kind of lost.

What's with the PV? I was expecting a more atmospheric one, but that's a mediocre PV. The poster is better than the PV. I have a bad feeling about this.

Why the fuck do they always name it like that? What's the turn on in this shitty and cringe-worthy naming sense? I wanna know

Hmm.. I guess the director loves time-travel anime huh.. XD
I'll give it a shot!
P.S. I've been seeing Ono Kensho everywhere now.. I guess he's fired up huh..? XD

I seriously need to stop watching idol anime... The fact that I can't afford to buy their CDs yet keep making my heart broken..

Time travel is such a weak foundation to build a story on. Creating a time travel series that doesn't suck is unlikely.. making two of them is pretty much impossible. Not holding out any hope for this.
