Anime studio Gainax Fukushima may now be called Gaina Co., Ltd., but that isn’t stopping them from working on a few legacy series! The rebranded studio is working on sequels for a pair of classic Studio Gainax anime.
The first project is Aoki Uru, which is a sequel to Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise. Hiroyuki Yamaga, who directed the original movie, is in charge of the sequel. Story details are a secret for now, but Gaina is planning on a 2022 global release.
The second sequel is Top o Nerae! Gunbuster 3, but story and staff details haven’t been shared. Gunbuster is a classic mecha series that pre-dates Gurren Lagann but is just as insane with a passionate cast and gigantic robots.
Gaina’s non-sequel projects include Akubi o Suru niwa Wake ga Aru (which has no details) and 2021’s Rescue Academia (a children’s anime about rescue workers helping disaster victims).
Are you excited for Gaina’s new projects?
