Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear masks.
Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened their doors to announce a new anime project, titled Hero Mask. The site includes a key visual, a teaser trailer, the main cast and crew, as well as a premiere date.
We break the details down below.
The minute-long teaser features a series of rapid-fire cuts through various scenes, as an electronica meloday plays in the background.
The image features a shot at a rain-slicked street, toward a pair of legs. The reflection shows a person in an orange jacket, holding a pistol.
