Utena Director’s Sarazanmai Anime Teased in New Video

sarazanmaiDirector Kunihiko Ikuhara (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum) recently revealed plans for a new original anime called Sarazanmai. The mysterious new project is currently slated for 2019, and in the meantime a second “That’s unpleasant” version teaser has arrived.

Heres the latest teaser, which reads (via Anime News Network) “Am I a lie, is the world a lie, are we a lie?” The narrator responds, “We are connected. But that’s unpleasant. But that’s wanted. Who is the one with a strong desire?” The text that closes it out says, “Don’t let it go, desire is your life.”

And the first “I’ll say something true” version, which reads: “For example, if everything passes by, the world would become empty.” The narrator follows up with, “I’ll say something true. You are connected, but alone,” and both the narrator and text conclude with, “Don’t let it go, desire is your life.”

MAPPA (Rage of Bahamut, Yuri!!! on ICE) is producing the series alongside Yuri Kuma Arashi‘s Lapin Track.
