I don't know how many of you remember when we talked about Anime no Chikara ("The Power of Anime"), a collaboration project between TV Tokyo and Aniplex to produce works by "spirited" anime creators, but ZakZak has posted about the upcoming second production in the Anime no Chikara line: Senkou no Night Raid, which is now announced to be airing this spring.

From what I hear from you readers and IRC-goers, the first anime in the Anime no Chikara line, So Ra No Wo To, isn't a huge hit, but Senkou no Night Raid-- a spy drama set in Shanghai in the year 1931, to be directed by Jun Matsumoto (the Persona -Trinity Soul- director, not the Jpop idol) --may perform a bit better. A-1 Pictures is doing the animation too, which is awesome-- check out this very brief teaser that came out around Christmas.
 
 

What say you? I think it looks pretty cool, potentially.

As long as they can apply common sense to their plots, it should be a decent watch. I love spy stuff.

I find it highly doubtful that a title like this is gonna be soaked in moe considering the character designs and the gritty tone of the trailer. Guess I'll give Senkou no Night Raid a shot when April comes around.

@Dream: Yeah, I'm with you...it looks as anti-SoRaNoWoTo as it could, short of being Fist of the North Star, I suppose.

Yeah, that seems like a weird series to connect it to, since this teaser is pretty sharp and un-adorable.
 
I mean, I dig it, but its no mentally handicapped army band anime.
