Wow, these are great news, I mean low long has it been since they put the project on hold? 3 years? 4 years? It already feels like a lifetime ago.
I'm a big fan of Yoshitoshi Abe's art and I'm looking forward to see his unique character designs again in animated form.

Well not really! More like Lain 2.0 since I heard people calling Despera its spiritual successor ^^

I vaguely remember the title when it was first announced.
It's sad that the previous director died, but i'm glad the project was picked up again.
