The New Kind Could Be A Cool Anime

posted by Andrew Cross

The New Kind is an animated web series project from Roninfilm, which is head up by Peter Hyoguchi.

From the Kickstarter page:

Darvin and Yuka (17 and 18) fall in love but have never physically met — a psychic link connects them. They are The New Kind; The next link in Humanity‚Äôs evolution. If they ever find each other, it will cause a chain reaction, instantly transforming all young people into god-like beings. But before that can happen, Darvin and Yuka must survive an evil force hunting them.

The project has attracted talent that has worked on Star Wars, The Matrix, Avatar, The Abyss, and the Harry Potter films. Motion capture tech was donated to them purely on how promising the concept is. After watching the trailer and looking over other concept art, the film gives off this cool 1980s animated adventure film vibe. This could be something special.
