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.

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

Mar 8, 2018 8:12 AM by Hoppy

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

No PLUS ULTRA!!!!! jokes here? Wow our taste for humor has evolved!

Jokes aside, Shinichiro watanabe and music with international casting sounds good to me.

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.

Carol and Tuesday is the most promising one.

Mar 8, 2018 6:04 AM by Fortunate

The final one, Carol & Tuesday, looks the most interesting tho.

We'll see.

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.

Mar 8, 2018 5:46 AM by TheServant

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

Mar 8, 2018 5:38 AM by SkyDrop

LOL so anime's future being CGI was right after all.

Mar 8, 2018 5:32 AM by Klad

Carol and Tuesday looks the most interesting from that lineup IMO.

Mar 8, 2018 5:30 AM by Haneken2086

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.

Mar 8, 2018 5:24 AM by Yukikaze_sama

So that was the rumored Bones and Watanabe music genre anime series, looking forward to it.

Mar 8, 2018 5:06 AM by Antagonized

Carol and Tuesday is what interests me the most.

So this is the new name of Noitamina block.

Btw @tsubasalover,missed some details,the first 2 confirmed to be 3DCG series.


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