Today brings the interesting bit of news that Takahashi Keitaro’s manga Jormungand is getting an anime adaptation. I don’t want to say this one is dark, but parts of it make Deadman Wonderland look like Tamayura. I would imagine this is going to be toned down some, but the good news is that White Fox (Steins;Gate) is handling the adaptation. While the manga – a story of a child soldier and the arms dealer who ends up as his protector – loses focus and drifts sometimes, it’s quite scary and surprisingly funny and even moving at its best. If nothing else, it’s not terribly commercial – which is reason enough to take this adaptation as good news.
Update: Here’s the first PV from White Fox.
