Editor Note: We know we’re late on publishing this one to the site. Work schedules and waiting for news verification both played a factor, but here it is.
A new Hatsune Miku animated series, as well as a webtoons and comics, are currently in the early stages of development. The news officially broke via an exclusive posted by Deadline, and was later confirmed by Graphic India, one of the partners in the series creation.
Crypton Future Media, Graphic India and Carlin West Agency are working together on the new series and comics. Sharad Devarajan and Carlin West and a team of writers will be creating the series, while the development will be overseen by CEO Hiroyuki Itoh of Crypton Future Media.
Hatsune Miku fans will be able to experience an original story with live-action, animation and music. How the “live-action” part is planned to be implemented will be interesting to see.
News regarding a release schedule is not available at this time, but we’ll likely hear more throughout the year.
