CMWilly has just posted a trailer for one of Gonzo‘s newest projects, an American / Japanese coproduction entitled The Five Killers. Designs are by Maeshima Shigeki, a brilliant but frustrating artist who abandoned his website and lives on only in the pages of Robot and on the covers of a few light novels. Production is being helmed by Eric Calderon, with the pilot animated by Hirata Tomohiro and script from George Krstic and Mark Waid. While I haven’t experienced any of these creators’ past works, the prospect of a brilliantly animated badass Gonzo tour de force is a compelling one. The first step out of mourning the loss of Mardock Scramble? Perhaps… we’ll be keeping an eye on the project as it develops, and watching the trailer several more times in the interim. (no more)
