Shangri-La Range Murata Anime Confirmed


A TV anime adaptation of sci-fi novel Shangri-La has been announced. Perhaps most notably, the art design will be provided by the great 村田蓮爾 / Range Murata, so that alone should be interesting to see.

You could be forgiven for never having heard of the novel, by Okinawan author 池上永一 / Eiichi Ikegami, as it seems mainly known by way of its serialisation in New Type magazine.

Details of the cast are undecided, but it is set to be produced by Gonzo, and be directed by 別所誠人 / Masato Bessho, who was involved in the production of Death Note and Bleach, amongst others. Some mixed reactions are already apparent to the Gonzo involvement, and we have to wonder how that will turn out. They aren’t that bad, surely?
