Studio Gainax has released the first promotional image for its upcoming television series Dantalian no Shoka. Adapted from the light-novel series of the same name, Dantalian is being directed by Hiroyuki Yamaga who is a co-founder and current executive producer of Studio Gainax. Yamaga’s previous works include Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi and Gainax’s first production The Wings of Honneamise.
Dantalian has been noted by Yamaga to be a more ‘refined’ work than Gainax’s previous television series Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt which aired last fall in Japan.
No release date is currently set for the upcoming television series.
