Masaaki Yuasa has announced a new episodic project to be produced by the studio he co-founded with Eunyoung Choi, Science Saru.
Yuasa is returning to his animation origins with a spin-off based on the popular television series Crayon Shin-chan. The show titled Super Shiro will center on Shin-chan’s dog, who turns out to be more than just a pet and carries out heroic acts to protect the world from evil.
Besides Yuasa, who is serving as overall director, other key contributors to the new project will be Tomohisa Shimoyama (chief director) and Kimiko Ueno (writer). The series will be produced by TV Asahi, Shinei Animation, ADK EM, and Futabasha.
