Anime Adaptation of Steampunk Action Manga, Levius,
to be Released as Netflix Original Series in Winter 2019!
Polygon Pictures ("PPI," President and CEO: Shuzo Shiota, Head Office: Tokyo, Japan) is proud to announce our anime adaptation based on Haruhisa Nakata's popular comic Levius (published in Shueisha's Young Jump Comics Ultra).
Based on Haruhisa Nakata's original comic, known for its rich artwork bringing to life the subtle emotions of conflicted youth alongside epic steampunk battles. The anime adaptation of this powerfully illustrated manga series is brought to us by Supervising Director Hiroyuki Seshita, with series composition by Hiroshi Seko, character design by Yuki Moriyama, sound direction by Yoshikazu Iwanami, music by Yugo Kanno, among others in this ensemble, reuniting many of the main staff from Ajin: Demi-Human. Up-and-comer Keisuke Ide also makes his debut as series director, after his work as an episode director in Ajin: Demi-Human.
Comment from Director Keisuke Ide
We came up with a number of ideas for the setting and story together with the original creator and the script writer. Although it's still in production, I'm sure viewers seeing Levius for the first time in this anime, as well as fans of the original will both be able to enjoy it. I hope you’re looking forward to it!
The official site (http://levius.net) with teaser visuals and trailer is also open from today! More details about the series to be added to the site as they are announced. Be sure to check it out!
