He has also written or overseen scripts in such anime as School-Live!, Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi!+, Yuruyuri San Hai!, Berserk, and the Resident Evil: Vendetta movie.

    ERbE1ef.jpgThe cover of the Mystery Bonita February issue has announced that fantasy manga Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau will receive an anime adaptation.

    Synopsis
    Chakuro is the 14-year-old archivist of the Mud Whale, a nigh-utopian island that floats across the surface of an endless sea of sand. Nine in ten of the inhabitants of the Mud Whale have been blessed and cursed with the ability to use saimia, special powers that doom them to an early death.

    Chakuro and his friends have stumbled across other islands, but they have never met, seen, or even heard of a human who wasn't from their own. One day, Chakuro visits an island as large as the Mud Whale and meets a girl who will change his destiny.

    Drawn by Abi Umeda, the manga began its serialization in Mystery Bonita in June 2013, and there are currently eight compiled volumes in print. It was listed tenth in the top 20 series for female readers in the 2015 "Kono Manga ga Sugoi!" annual rankings.
