New GAINAX Anime: Dantalian no Shoka

Nothing new in the Evangelion front since the discovery that Evangelion: 3.0/Q may be further behind schedule than most anticipated as well as Hideaki Anno telling fans to “please be patient”. So there’s going to be a short update about our friends over at GAINAX.

Their new upcoming show this July Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian (ダンタリアンの書架) released a promotional video, giving us a first look at the series.

The premise revolves around Hugh Anthony Disward, who finds a library in the mansion he has inherited, and a girl Dalian who has access to the prohibited books of the demons. It is directed by Yutaka Uemura, who has previously worked with Mahoromatic and Gurren Lagann, and is expected to be 13 episodes. This fantasy title contrasts pretty heavily with GAINAX’s previous show, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. Here’s hoping for some upcoming news about Evangelion.
