Scriptwriter Ai Ōta (Ultraman Nexus, Turn A Gundam, Inuyasha) has revealed on her official blog that she and Appleseed movie director Shinji Aramaki are working on a new hard science-fiction television anime series called Viper's Creed. The story revolves around the members of a private military company (PMC), and the uneasy tension between them and the regular military after a war that caused massive environmental destruction. The other writers are Masanao Akahoshi (Ultraman Möbius, Strain: Strategic Armored Infantry, The Big O), Akira Tanisaki (Zone of the Enders concept advisor), and Keiichi Hasegawa (Ultraman Nexus, The Big O, Astro Boy Tetsuwan Atom). Besides directing Appleseed, Aramaki designed the mecha in Genesis Climber Mospeada, Megazone 23, and dozens of anime titles.
Animax has already scheduled a Viper's Creed special program at 11:00 p.m. on December 30, just before the actual series airs. The series will premiere on the Animax and BS11 satellite channels as well as on other venues next January.
Ōta is also developing an unspecified horror suspense project that will last one quarter of a year. She plans to provide more details about this other project when she is allowed to announce them.
