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.

Synopsis
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.

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.

So Terminator?

Also, you gotta be a badass to have a name like DE RIDER!

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.

Mar 18, 9:26 PM by TheServant

I like what I saw and read so I'll definitely be tuning in

Mar 18, 9:19 PM by Tokoya

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

Can we please make it so that whoever writes these synopses actually has a grasp on the english language?

Mar 18, 8:40 PM by Red_Keys

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

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.
