Details were scarce, but manga creator Tetsuya Endo is reportedly creating the film’s original story and coming up with new designs for all the characters involved. Endo also released a gorgeous new visual celebrating the announcement of both the film and the upcoming season, which you can see below.

The twist here is that Yor is a secret top assassin who too must appear as a normal person; he and Lloyd don’t know each other’s double lives, but Anya does doing, because he’s a telepath. Plus, there’s a dog named Bond who can see the future.
