Aniplex launched a teaser website of Nakamura, Kenji's original anime project "Tsuritama" on January 7th. It will be aired in the Noitamina block. The details of the anime will be announced on February 2nd.

Tsuritama official website

The script shown on the website indicates there are three characters; Haru, Yuki and Kate.
Haru suddenly appeared in front of me. "Yuki, let's save the earth together!" "Save the earth? What do you mean?" Little did I think we would really wind up with saving the earth.

He confirmed that this is going to be airing in April.

So this and Sakamichi no Apollon are the spring noitaminA shows.

I dropped C, Guilty Crown and UN-GO. I thought No.6 and Fractale were okay, though I expected better from the latter. AnoHana, Hourou Musuko and Usagi Drop were just the three best shows ever to air in the noitaminA slot.

So overall, they've had about the same success rate over the past year for me as they ever have, I guess. I don't mind the block broadening the type of content it airs either. For example I'd love love love to watch a BRS TV anime no matter where it aired, although for various reasons - 8 eps, awful CG, drop in character design quality - I'm skipping this one.

But the best stuff in the noitaminA slot for me is the emotional romantic/friendship/relationship dramas set in the modern day. In addition to the three I mentioned above, my other noitaminA block favorites include Honey & Clover and Nodame. I guess the two exceptions ot that are Saraiya Goyou and Higashi no Eden, which are also among my favorites, but a bit different from the others I listed.

Geez, so much hate on noitaminA. I've been liking their series so far since last year starting with [C]. Others include Usagi Drop and UN-GO. The next I'm expecting out of their amazing artwork is this and Black Rock Shooter.

Blah. >__>


I'Ve started to like them LESS since [C], but whatever works for you. Their series are still better than the vast majority, even when they suck.

noitaminA
and the same creator of C
but i hope the art is more better this time

Actually, the katakana says 'Keito', which is a valid Japanese first name. So it could well be three boys.

In addition, based on the scraps of text on the website, at least one of the cast uses 'ore', and another uses 'boku'...

the author of mononoke doing new anime series? FYESSSSSS.

Hopefully it will also have an original art style like his bakeneko run in ayakashi japanese horror and his mononoke series.

Best thing to be heard in months.

I randomly typed "tsuritama" into a translator and got "fishing egg", hmm...

Though so many people are damn quick to dismiss a show we know virtually nothing about except for the main overarching plot.

That synopsis is short, sweet, and mysterious enough to get my attention. I've got my hopes up already. I'm willing to bet the cast won't be all female.

Will certainly watch. More unique visual presentation is very welcome.

I hope Nakamura's going to write and direct this with a competent staff and studio. :)

I'll watch it just because of Nakamura. I'm just hoping it's as good as Trapeze and not relatively mediocre like [C].
