Code Geass director Goro Taniguchi is creative producer of sci-fi story
The September issue of Kadokawa Shoten’s Newtype magazine is announcing on Friday that a television anime called Fantasista Doll (Fantanjisuta Dōru) is in the works. Goro Taniguchi (Code Geass, s-CRY-ed) will not direct this project, but he will serve as creative producer with the actual director, Hisashi Saito (Haganai, Heaven’s Lost Property).
The science-fiction story revolves around “dolls” who fight and power up with special cards.
Newtype indicates that this is a different project from the recently announced anime “for cosplayers” that Taniguchi is planning with World Cosplay Summit.
