The official website for the Black Rock Shooter television anime series began streaming a new promotional video on Thursday. The video lists staff credits, but deliberately obscures the actual names of the staff members except for the original character designer huke and the animation studios Ordet and Sanzigen.
This is the first promotional video for the project, besides the television commercial that originally announced the project in August. The anime will premiere in Fuji TV’s Noitamina timeslot next January.
The franchise already inspired an original video anime by director Shinobu Yoshioka, figures, and games. The artist ringo launched the Black Rock-chan four-panel manga in the inaugural issue of Kadokawa Shoten’s 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine in March, and Sanami Suzuki (Net Ghost PiPoPa) launched another Black Rock Shooter ~Innocent Soul~ manga in Kadokawa’s Young Ace magazine in June.
