This work is “no monologue, only a few lines”.
This is a very high hurdle for anime, but that’s what makes this work so appealing.
We will do our best so that you can immerse yourself in the fascinating noir world by making full use of movement, voice, music, sound effects, and anime weapons.
[Series composition / Screenplay Hisao Ayumu]
I paid close attention to express the charm of the original by Fe-sensei in anime.
I hope that as many people will see the fate and “love of killing” between two people Chateau and Ryang-ha in the anime.
[Character Design Sato Yoko]
I read it all at once, a bold story which is contrasting to the title.
In this work, instead of expressing one’s feelings and thoughts with lines, they are expressed with facial expressions and actions. I hope I can capture that expression in the anime without missing it.
I hope you will enjoy the various “forms of love”.
