Adult media company Mediabank was selling a doujinshi at Comiket 73 (Toranoana mail order page) that featured a short volume of rough sketches from artists Kino Hitoshi, Maruta, and Mogudan, along with a DVD that contained preview material from three eroanime episodes currently in production, one designed by each of the above artists and produced by Mediabank eroanime label White Bear (the full Mediabank eroanime catalog can be found here). Those familiar with White Bear’s work won’t be surprised to hear that fidelity to the artists’ original designs is questionable, but news that veteran director Yoshi-Ten (of Bible Black fame) will be helming the Mogudan episode makes me optimistic that it will be something worth seeing. Screenshots and further details below:

As can be seen the Mogudan project is the least developed at this point, and there were no samples of actual animation from it on the disc; I’m very curious what the killer artist / director combo will be able to produce together, so we’ll be keeping a close eye out for any further news.
