Operation Backlog Completion 2018
Jan 052018

Last week, we finally got new details about the Layton anime first announced in October.

According to the new information, the anime is based on Layton’s Mystery Journey and will star Katrielle Layton.

It will be a “high-speed comical mystery-solving story,” and it sounds like it might tell an original story instead of adapting the game, although that isn’t entirely clear.

Back in October, they said it would be a 26-episode series, but this new information listed it at 50 episodes. That’s pretty impressive!

The movie, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, was pretty entertaining, if a bit convoluted due to cramming a Layton plot into less than two hours. 50 anime episodes should give the show a much better pace, especially if it focuses on smaller mysteries.

I wonder if it will include puzzles.

There will also be a manga adaptation of the anime, as well as “stylish goods.” Both are due out in spring 2018. I’ll try to play Layton’s Mystery Journey before then!

What are your hopes for the upcoming Layton anime?
