Announced during the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo, the show be a co-production between Crunchyroll and Adult Swim, with Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki executive producing.

They’re promising more info on the show tomorrow during an industry panel session at noon ET (perhaps including a teaser trailer?), but for viewers in the US, you’ll be able to see the show when it airs on Adult Swim. It also stream everywhere outside of Japan and mainland China via Crunchyroll.
