An Expert Animator Must Learn about First Love in MAPPA’s First Trailer for Zenshu

We have been getting some fantastic anime based on pre-existing properties like Delicious in Dungeon and Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End, but once in a while we get something that is completely original going straight to the anime treatment.

Just in, studio MAPPA, the same house behind hits like Attack on Titan and Kakegurui have released the first look at their upcoming anime Zenshu. Check this out:

The official description for the show is as follows:

After graduating from high school, Natsuko Hirose starts her career as an animator. Her talent quickly flourishes, and she makes her debut as a director in no time. Her first anime becomes a massive hit, sparking a social phenomenon and earning her recognition as an up-and-coming genius director. Her next project is set to be a romantic comedy movie themed around first love! However, having never been in love herself, Natsuko struggles to understand the concept of first love, and as a result, she’s unable to create the storyboard, causing the movie production to come to a standstill.

It’s interesting that MAPPA should make something about struggling animators, seeing that the studio has come under fire for poor working conditions. We don’t know if this is them officially saying something about the state of animation, but based on what we see in the trailer, we do some kind of idea how stressful it is to produce anime.

And we thought that making manga was stressful enough.

No release date has been announced for Zenshu, but the series is currently in production, and it’s possible we could get something early next year.
