Sword Art Online: Alicization
Manabu Ono (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, The irregular at magic high school) will direct the project at A-1 Pictures, with the team of Gou Suzuki (Oreimo 2, Minami-ke Natsuyasumi), Shingo Adachi (Megaman Star Force, Sword Art Online), and Tomoya Nishiguchi providing character designs. Yuki Kajiura is scoring the show’s soundtrack.
Hulu describes the series as:
“Where…am I…?” Before he knows it, Kirito has made a full-dive into an epic, fantasy-like virtual world. With only a murky recollection of what happened right before he logged in, he starts to wander around, searching for clues. He comes upon an enormous, pitch dark tree (the Gigas Cedar), where he encounters a boy. “My name is Eugeo. Nice to meet you, Kirito.” Although he is supposedly a resident of the virtual world – an NPC – the boy shows the same array of emotions as any human being. As Kirito bonds with Eugeo, he continues to search for a way to log out of this world. Meanwhile, he remembers a certain memory deep down within him. He remembers racing through the mountains with Eugeo as a child… A memory that he should not have in the first place.
And in this memory, he sees someone other than Eugeo, a young blond girl. Her name is Alice. And it is a name that must never be forgotten…
Odahiro Watanabe (Soul Buster) is directing Tokyo Ghoul:Re at Studio Pierrot, with Atsuko Nakajima (Ranma ½, You’re Under Arrest!) providing character designs. Chuuji Mikasano (Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Ghoul √A) is in charge of series composition for the title.
Hulu describes the show as:
Taking place two years after the raid of the cafe “Anteika” by the CCG detachment, a new detachment’s investigator, Sasaki Haiske supervises teenagers who have parts of ghoul implanted in them. But he is often tormented by nightmares, in which he sees a white-haired young man with a red eye.
