As of now, I’m guessing “D” doesn’t stand for “delightful”…

Earlier today, Kadokawa announced that they’re working on an original project, tentatively titled Project D. Takuya Sato (Armitage III, Steins;Gate) is directing the project, with Yoshitoshi ABe (Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei) producing the original character designs.

The company unveiled a minute-long teaser for the project, which you can check out below:

Kadokawa describes Project D as:

When development engineer Delida wakes up in the future from a cold sleep, his girlfriend isn’t there… he decides to go back 10 years in time to ‘that incident‘ to keep his promise with her.

The key to get her back is a time leap.
