It’s often a good thing when a Japanese science fiction book gets an original anime adaptation, which is why we’re excited about SAKUGAN. Based on the novel by Nekotarou Inui, SAKUGAN (aka Sacks&Guns!!) is being produced by Satelight studios (the home of many Macross sequels) and will feature direction by Junichi Wada (Gosick, Fairy Tale).
Set to debut on TV in October 2021, a new English subtitled trailer for SAKUGAN has just been released. Watch below!
Here’s the key art for SAKUGAN along with the plot synopsis via Crunchyroll News.
One day in the distant future. Humans live shoulder to shoulder in “colonies” separated by rock. Outside the colonies, a dangerous undeveloped area called “the Labyrinth” is expanding. Those who risk their lives to develop “the Labyrinth”, who mark out the undeveloped areas, are known as “Markers”. A young girl, Memempu, who wants to be a Marker one day, and a man, Gagumber, who used to be one. This mismatched father and daughter now take on the Labyrinth! “If there’s no path, dig one!” Adventure Mecha Action presented by SATELIGHT to start airing in autumn 2021!
