The April 2019 issue of Young Magazine the 3rd announced on Wednesday that a TV anime adaptation of Sun Takeda's Gleipnir manga is in production.

Synopsis
Shuichi Kagaya is an ordinary high school kid in a boring little town. But when a beautiful classmate is caught in a warehouse fire, he discovers a mysterious power: he can transform into a furry dog with an oversized revolver and a zipper down his back. He saves the girl's life, sharing his secret with her. But she's searching for the sister who killed her family, and she doesn't care how degrading it gets: she will use Shuichi to accomplish her mission... (Source: Kodansha Comics)

Staff
Director: Kazuhiro Yoneda (Akatsuki no Yona)
Series Composition: Shinichi Inotsume (Gangsta.)
Character Design: Takahiro Kishida (Btooom!)
Studio: Pine Jam

The supernatural action manga began its serialization in Young Magazine the 3rd in October 2015. Kodansha published the fifth volume in June 2018, with the sixth volume planned for a March 19 release. Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English last July and will also ship the first volume on March 19.

Oh, the synopsis is very intriguing! I’m assuming the female slowly comes to realise the human emotions of love and company or so, always up for such kind of stories.

Key visual, on the other hand, is a bit .. uhm unique, I suppose but I’ll keep an eye on this for now.

Moreover, I’ve seen a couple shows from Studio Pine Jam so far and both were very entertaining so hopefully this will join those ranks too!

Cool to see Akatsuki no Yona’s Director here by the way! I’d rather see him working for a 2nd Season of Akatsuki no Yona instead but sadly it’s not up to him so no use getting into that.

Bit weird but who knows it might be actually nice.



Which do you prefer: a mango or a papaya?

Heard about this manga once. I'm slightly surprised something like this could get an adaptation.
I'm watching anime since 2012. I also play games, sometimes.

Don't bother me if you want to 'become friends' or things like that.
It's tiresome. I know you just want to collect some meaningless numbers.

I really don't know what to say about this, on one hand it sounds kinda interesting, on the other i'll wait for more information since this is a seinen and the chance of it being gorey is high, i'd rather wait then relize it's not for me like i did with Golden Kamuy and Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru.

I was wondering what Pine Jam was doing. They might be able to really shine with this one.

Gleipnir Datto?

Well let's hope production goes smoothly with Pine Jam considering what happened with Just Because.

Looks like a cool revenge story. But I'm intrigued about the word 'degrading', my ecchi senses are tingling.

The manga isn’t in a place where i think it can have a satisfying ending. So i think it’ll be an anime exclusive ending

my god, the manga is just.. wtf is author doing? this series is complete train wreck, gory, and heavy fanservice.. this is way more insane than killing bites and the character is soo apathetic...shame i like his previos works, but this is just not my thing.. unless this got same amount of censorship as terra formers, idon't know how it can even aired on tv.. netflix is probably best options tho.

To be honest the synopsis might be interesting but I also am getting somewhat of a weird vibe from it. But the staff looks competent enough.

There's quite a lot of nudity in this, so hopefully they keep it.
