A 17-second teaser was more than enough to get fans excited for Sarazanmai, which is an original series that will air next year. The video cryptically teases, “Don’t let go, desire is your life.” Different versions of the teaser will play during a Revolutionary Utena marathon on Nico Nico.
Will you keep an eye on Sarazanmai?
