The Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy director was a special guest during the Madman Anime Festival in Melbourne, Australia, and there, he announced his plans for a new anime.

During his stage appearance, the director revealed that he’s developing an anime centered around music at studio BONES. He also talked about his thoughts on his host country, Australia. He said that “My image of Australia is all coming from the movie MadMax…”
