RUMOR: Is Yutaka Yamamoto Working on a New Anime?

Rumors are swirling online that director Yutaka Yamamoto, who went on indefinite hiatus back in May of 2016, may be returning to anime with a new project codenamed “Project Twilight”.


The rumors stem from an image of a girl playing the violin that bears Yamamoto’s name and the phrase “Project Twilight” in its copyright line.



Comments attributed to Yamamoto seem to imply that the new project will be a sequel to an earlier work. No official confirmation is yet available from Yamamoto’s official Twitter feed (@yamacane_0901).
