Not to be confused with Tokyo Babylon.
Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened to announce that Mado Nozaki’s Babylon novels will receive an anime TV series. A teaser trailer and visual for the project, as well as details on the production company were revealed.
We break the details down below.
The 86-second promo flies through a series of computer visuals, highlighting various nations, and flying through visuals of topics that include assisted suicide. All the while, a deep-voiced narrator discusses the core concepts behind the show. The teaser ends on the show’s key visual.
The new visual features a mysterious raven-haired woman, seated on a throne in a colorful palace. The image was drawn by Zain, who illustrated for the novels.
Studio Revoroot is producing the series, with Twin Engine serving as a general producer.
Amazon holds the digital rights to the project, and will stream the show exclusively on their platform in Japan and abroad.
Babylon first hit retailers under Kodansha’s “Kodansha Taiga” imprint in 2015. Three volumes have been produced to date, with the latest hitting stores on November 22, 2017.
