A new action survival anime and its promotional video were unveiled at Anime Expo on Sunday. Titled Gibiate, the anime is an original series by Gibiate Project, which includes Yoshitaka Amano (Vampire Hunter D) as the original character concept designer and Ryou Aoki (Endride) who is the executive producer and planner. The project is slated for Summer 2020 and Amano will host the anime's premiere at Anime Expo next year.

Synopsis
In 2030, a virus has infected humans throughout the world. Infected people turn into different forms of monsters based on their ages, sexes and races. The virus is named "Gibia" - after being rich in variety like gibia.

Traveling samurai and ninja Kanzaki Sensui and Sanada Kenroku, who come from the Edo era, appear in the blighted wasteland that was formerly Japan. Fighting together with help from Doctor Kathleen who tries to find cure for Gibia, the group face ceaseless attacks from Gibias, and outlaws that attack for food. It's a dangerous journey with enemies all around. (Source: Official site, edited)

'Endride' is not a production credit you want on your resumé. This looks like the worst crap literally ever.

Yoshitaka Amano?! Oh, of course, only the original designer, nobody would bother animate his drawings...
Well, whatever.

Sweet lord this looks terrible.

One more reason to check out Amano's concept designs. I hope they'll be released during the promotion period.

I hate it when they bring in incredible illustrators but they ruin the designs for the anime itself. This is one of those cases where they're overly ambitious but they can't deliver at all.
