The first promotional video for the future action anime Jormungand has been streamed on Nico Nico Douga. The White Fox production is based on the manga by Keitarou Takahashi and revolves around the group of mercenaries who are led by Unshou Ishizuka. In the company are also the former child-soldier Jonah, Valmet – a master of knife-fights and the arms dealer Koko Hekmatyar.
While the character’s group is something that shouldn’t be overlooked by enemies, the anime’s production staff is also as strong. Directed by Keitarou Matonaga (Katanagatari, GetBackers!) and with a script by Yousuke Kuroda (Excel Saga, Onegai Teacher and Scryed), one would think it enough for a great production. But it seems like the studio charged with an all-in attack since Jormungand will also have Mobile Suit Gundam 00’s Yousuke Kuroda and Gurren Lagann’s Taku Iwazaki working on it.
For the video, you can click below.. But I have to apologize in advance since it’s with a limit of a sort (unavailable for some areas).
A definite show for the lovers of fast fights, urban lifestyle and a lot of action, Jormungand will be a show to look out for. I think it will work for all the fans of shows such as Canaan, Scryed, GetBackers and so on… At least judging from this single look on the 102-second preview streamed on the official website of the upcoming anime.
