Sweet news from our pals at the affenheimtheater this morning! It seems that Fumihiko Sori, director of Vexille, Ichi and the groundbreaking Appleseed, will be making an adaptation of the popular sci-fi manga "2001 Nights" (2001 Ya Monotogari). Called simply TO, the project has even launched an official website here.

The manga by Yukinobu Hoshino was published between 1984 to 1986 and tells several short stories about mankind’s adventures in space. Personally, I'd like to see a more traditional animation approach from the usually CGI happy Sori, but whatever, this project will no doubt be truly epic in scope regardless.
