Too Kyo Games Reveals New Anime Series Akudama Drive

Too Kyo Games was founded back in 2017. Led by Danganronpa creator Kazutaka Kodaka and Zero Escape creator Kotaro Uchikoshi, we finally now know what Kodaka and Uchikoshi are up to, which is an anime named Akudama Drive.

Too Kyo Games’ motto is to offer gamers and anime goers something “brand new” and refreshing. I’m not sure how these games and anime shows will pan out, but we now have a slight clue thanks to Akudama Drive’s debut trailer:

Back in 2018, we knew that Akudama Drive was not a game but an anime and that Studio Pierrot, Kodaka, and Uchikoshi were all working on the show. Famitsu also noted back in 2018 that the anime will try to capture the feel of films like Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Luc Besson’s Léon: The Professional.

Furthermore, we now know the names behind the people working on this anime thanks to

  • Mechanical Design: Sho Yamamoto, Haruo Miyagawa, Shinobu Tsuneki
  • Art Director: Yoshio Tanioka
  • Art Design: Kaoru Aoki
  • Color Design: Saori Goda
  • Editing: Akinori Mishima
  • Director of Photography: Kazuhiro Yamada
  • CG Director: Hidenori Fujitani
  • Sound Director: Yukio Nagasaki
  • Sound Production: delfi Sound

Also, here are the names of the characters and their VAs:

  • Ordinary Person: Tomoyo Kurosawa
  • Courier: Yuichiro Umehara
  • Brawler: Shunsuke Takeuchi
  • Hacker: Shun Horie
  • Doctor: Megumi Ogata
  • Hoodlum: Subaru Kimura
  • Cutthroat: Takahiro Sakurai

Something worth pointing out, two years ago, the Doctor character wasn’t showing anything revealing — meaning that you couldn’t see her busty assets. However, in 2020 the character is showing more than before, which is surprising in today’s climate:


Anyway, Studio Pierrot will start airing the anime sometime in July of this year. What day of July is uncertain as of this writing.

Finally, on March 21st, more info on the show will be presented. In the meantime, you can head to for more details.
