ANN is reporting that Shouji Murahama has started a new company, Lambda Film, only a day after leaving Gonzo. In his parting notes he still asked fans to watch Shangri-la which premiers on April 5, which is Gonzo's newest Sci-Fi anime series. Murahama will act as a representative director for Lambda Film's board of directors.
Just two days ago we reported on Gonzo closing their gaming division and there has been layoffs and spliting of divisions in recent months at the anime company.
Murahama had formerly left Gainax before co-founding Gonzo with anime director Mahiro Maeda and film director Shinji Higuchi. Wednesday is also the day that parent company GDH absorbed Gonzo along with the name.
