Upcoming epic fantasy anime Guin Saga, which as we heard is the adaptation of the famed 120 volume series of novels by Kaoru Kurimoto, has received a firm air date, starting April on NHK BS2, as well as some further details.

Direction will be by 若林厚史 / Atsushi Wakabayashi, a director and animarion supervisor of favourable repute who has directed episodes of YuYu Hakusho, GitS: SAC, and even Naruto. The production is being handled by Satellite.
Via the official site.
Given the acclaim the novels have received it will certainly be interesting to see how well this is adapted.
