King Amusement Creative announced this recently Tokyo Babylon, famous manga Shonen'ai written by the group of Japanese authors CLAMP, will receive an anime adaptation of the animation studio in the course of 2021 GoHands (K, handshaker). You can check out the first official trailer at the top of the news.
For those unfamiliar with the work, keep in mind that Tokyo Babylon is a manga released in the early 90s that consists of 7 volumes distributed in Italy by Planet Manga. The summary is as follows: "It's 1991, the Japanese speculative bubble period is coming to an end, and an aura of elegance and wealth lingers on the streets. But underground, evil spirits are celebrating and preparing to invade the land of the rising sun. Stopping them is the task of Subaru and Hokuto, the heirs of the Sumeragi family, who, thanks to the magical art of Onmyodo, can defeat the forces of evil".
According to what we have learned so far, the new adaptation should partially break away from the original story, as it will be discontinued in 2021. No further information has been released at the moment, so it's difficult to tell if this is a reboot or simply a recently scheduled remake. New details will be announced in the coming months.
