    The script and story, and the show itself, will be written and supervised by Nitroplus’s most infamous writer ever, Gen Urobuchi. He who has earned both the ire, awe, and respect of fans and critics alike, for  his works like Psycho-Pass, Madoka Magica, Fate/ Zero, and Aldnoah.Zero.

    Urobuchi has been known to be very “sadistic” in his treatment of characters, from Madoka Magica’s Mami Tomoe all the way to Aldnoah.Zero’s Slaine Troyard, and has been known for “Butchering” characters that fans have lovingly nicknamed him “Urobutcher.”
