Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince is the newest project by Jormungand and Katanagatari director Keitaro Motonaga. The anime will air in Japan in April 2013 and is based on Rando Ayamine and Hikaru Niijima’s original manga which was first published last year.

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed’s character designer Hisashi Hirai is taking on the same task for this project while screenwriter is Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!). Dogakobo and Orange studios are working on the production as well.
The story follows Izuru Hitachi. He is one of the new human generation. These children are the result of the advance in genetic engineering achieved by the human race in the past decades. Another result of the great achievements of the race is that they have managed to expand their natural habitat into outer space. This is also the reason behind the needed genetic mutations.
The show is a mecha and sci-fi one and, naturally, follows the rules of both genres as we follow Izuru-chan and his friends through their fight to protect humanity by means of giant robot-ships.
