In the “Plus Ultra Fuji TV Anime Lineup Presentation 2018” livestream, Fuji-TV revealed their latest original anime project Revisions currently in the works. The said original anime will air on the Plus Ultra programming block starting January 2019.

Goro Taniguchi, from Code Geass, ID-0, and Planetes, will be at the directorial helm, with Shirogumi (Etotama, Antique Bakery) as the animation studio responsible for the series. Other confirmed staff include Sunao Chikaoka (Abnormal Physiology Seminar) as the character designer; Jun Shirai (key animator for Blood-C, Ghost in the Shell Arise) to translate the designs into CG; and the tandem of Makoto Fukami (Berserk 2016) and Taichi Hashimoto (Speed Grapher) to deal with the series composition.

The introductory passage from the official website states:

 “This is a prediction. An extreme crisis will befall the five of you someday. At that time, you five will protect everyone.” Daisuke Dōjima is a second-year high school student who, as a child, was kidnapped. Daisuke, along with his friends Gai, Lū, Marimari, and Keisaku, get wrapped up in the mysterious phenomenon known as the “Shibuya Drift.” The central area of Shibuya rises up and is transported at least 300 years in the “future.” What awaits them is a vast wasteland and forest dotted with ruins. There, they will work with the future people “revisions” to operate giant mechanical monsters. Daisuke meets a girl named Milo, who has the same name as the person who kidnapped Daisuke. Milo informs Daisuke that he’s the only one who can operate the “doll weapon String Puppet” and protect Shibuya. Daisuke and his friends must take back the present by fighting the future in a town of isolation, against an unknown enemy.
