Get your motor running with a new series from PA Works, featuring drivers challenging a cross-country race at the turn of the century!
Appareranman is an original project created by Kadokawa, PA Works, and project production group APPERRACING. The series will tell the story of Japanese engineers Soran Appare and Isshiki Kosame, who became stranded in Los Angeles after an accident. At the turn of the 20th century, they hear about a transcontinental race from Los Angeles to New York City that will net the winner a huge cash prize. Together, they decide to enter the race in hopes of buying their way home—but they’ll have a lot of competition.
Headed up and scripted by Crayon Shin-chan movie director Masakazu Hashimoto, the show will feature original character designs by Ahndongshik, the artist behind historical fiction manga Gagoze and Lindbergh. Yurie Oohigashi (Maquia – When the Promised Flower Blooms) will handle general character design and serve as animation director, with Evan Call (Symphogear G and GX, Violet Evergarden) composing the music.
An official website and Twitter account have opened for the series as well. We’ll be keeping an eye out for the next wave of news, including premiere dates and casting.
