The Creator of VAMPIRE HUNTER D Announces a New Anime Project Called GIBIATE
One of the creators of Vampire Hunter D, character designer Yoshitaka Amano, is working on a new anime project called Gibiate with a team of team of talented Japanese artists and creators, and they’ve come up with something that is looks crazy! The series is set in a world that is plagued by demons and nightmarish bug-like creatures.
The team behind this project includes Naoki Serizawa (Resident Evil monster designer), Yuzo Koshiro (music composer), and Yoshida Brothers (music performers). We have a preview of Gibiate that you can watch below along with a synopsis that offers some of the story details. As you’ll see, this anime is going to be pretty insane, but lots of fun. I’d watch it!
In 2030, Japan. A virus has infected humans throughout the world. Infected people turn into different forms of monsters based on their ages, sexes and races. The virus is named ‘Gibia’ - after being rich in variety like gibia. Just then, a pair of samurai and ninja appeared in such a blighted wasteland of Japan. They both traveled from the early Edo period, fighting together with help from a doctor who tries to find cure for Gibia. Facing ceaseless attacks from Gibias, and outlaws that attack travelers for food, they start the dangerous journey with enemies all around."
This is the first anime character design work that Amano has worked on in ten years, and as you’ll see he’s ready to unleash some monstrous fury! Check out the teaser trailer below and let us know what you think!
