Animation studio P.A. Works announced an original anime series titled Fairy Gone on Thursday, scheduled for an April 2019 premiere. Main staff and cast members, as well as a teaser preview have also been revealed.

Synopsis
"Once upon a time, fairies were tools of war."

The story takes place in a world where fairies possess and dwell in animals, giving them mysterious abilities. By removing the organs of a possessed animal and transplanting them into humans, fairies can be summoned as an alter ego and be used as a weapon. Such individuals who used fairies as war tools were called "Fairy Soldiers." Once the war was over and they completed their roles, the soldiers lost their purpose. Some began working for the government, some joined the mafia, and some even became terrorists, as each chose their own way to live.

Nine years have passed since the war. The protagonist Mariya is a new recruit of "Dorothea," an organization which investigates and suppresses fairy-related crimes. Amidst the unstable political situation, criminals with lingering wounds from the war and past conflicts emerge and engage in terrorism as an act of revenge. This is the story of Fairy Soldiers, fighting for their own justice in a chaotic postwar world.

The synopsis and the staff got me hyped as shit now lol, I'm a huge fan of Grimgar so I can't wait

The premise and style reminds me a lot of the manga series To the abandonded sacred beasts. I don't really trust the Grimgar LN author with the script writing, so that could go badly. At least hopefully the show delivers on its cool aesthetic style. It always makes me happy to see when a really good mangaka is solicited to make designs for an original anime project.

You can't really trust PA works for good story-writing, story-telling with their last projects (Sirius, Irozuku) but who knows, maybe this time ...

From the teaser, I will keep my expectations pretty low though.

Nice to see Know Name back as well as grimgar creator working on it. Really high expectations for this one.

Let's not forget that Know Name also sang for "Sakura Quest", another P.A. Works and Toho Animation series.

it does look fairly interesting, the concept of transplanting organs for power reminds me of tokyo ghoul

The premise sounds quite decent especially the staff with Kenichi Suzuki and Ao Jyumonji. It will be interesting to see how Ao Jyumonji as the main writer of the series will perform besides his own LN.

Never watched Nagi before, heard some good things about it though.
But from all the P.A things I've watched they always are just average to fine. With Charlotte being good, which is a shame really cause the visuals look good af.


While one of P.A. Works anime other than Charlotte/Angel Beats Shirobako is Anime of The Year on Tokyo Anime Awards Festival 2016


I enjoyed Shirobako too, and it has it's charm showing off the problems studios encounter while making a show, but watching problem after problem for 24 episodes straight basically wears off in a while for me, and without substantial characters or story development it didn't hook me as much as it perhaps could.

It is a unique anime though, I'll give P.A Works that. One of the main reasons I gave it a 7.

I just hope this new show will be good, but I'll guess we'll see once the show drops.

It looks sick! It looks like a brutal seinen. Is it only me or do these creatures look like from Claymore or D.Gray-man

Well, they did Nagi no Asukara, which was pretty great itself, so I wouldnt really say that.

P.A has never been that good at writing stories. Hope they proof that they can write something decent atleast on the level of Charlotte/Angel beats.


P.A. Works doesn't write stories. They do the animation.
