Sailor Moon Director’s New Project Revealed

Amazing Twins | Saru Anime

A teaser site and trailer were launched earlier this month for an unnamed anime project. Little was known about it, except for the fact that Junichi Sato would be involved. Name sound familiar? It should, if you’re at all into magical girl series. He’s been involved with quite a few big name titles, including Sailor Moon.

The shroud of mystery surrounding this new project has just been lifted. It’s an OVA project called Destructive Dangerous Foolish Girls – Amazing Twins (Zetsumetsu Kigu Shōjo Amazing Twins), and the “foolish action girl” who was shown in the trailer is named Amane Todoroki. This does beg the question though: twins? So where’s our other heroine?

Other big names involved in the project include Takehito Harada (character designer for the Disgaea video game series) and Mari Okada (writer who has been involved with Anohana, Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, and Black Rock Shooter, among many other series).

I really love the look of the promotional materials that have been released so far, and I’m a big fan of a lot of Sato’s past works like Princess Tutu and Pretear. It looks like Amazing Twins will be released in 2014, so I’ll be waiting impatiently until then to see the final result.

New Project Teased by Sailor Moon Creator

Junichi Sato's Foolish Action Girl | Saru Anime

Sailor Moon fans are still impatiently waiting for this year’s promised anime reboot. While there’s still nothing definitive about when it will air, we might have something else to look forward to now. Junichi Sato, veteran Sailor Moon director, seems to be involved in a new project. There’s nothing but a teaser showcasing the silhouette of a “foolish action girl” as of right now, but hey- that’s more than we’ve gotten for the new Sailor Moon series at least.

Junichi Sato worked on the first two seasons of the Sailor Moon anime and has also been involved in mahou shoujo series like Princess Tutu, Pretear, Magic Users Club, and Ojamajo Doremi. It’s not 100% certain that the new teaser is for a magical girl series- but with those credentials, I certainly hope that’s the direction it’s going in.
