Netflix is joining CLAMP for a new fairy tale-based anime project “Grimm” (グリム). The manga artist group CLAMP is credited as the character design. Wit Studio is animating the series. “Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch” creator Michiko Yokote works on the script.
CLAMP and Netflix formed a partnership in 2020. The project was first announced on Netflix Animation Studio Focus Panel in the Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2021 held in France.
The “Grimm” anime project is based on the Grimms’ Fairy Tales, with a story boldly interwoven with horror and suspense elements.
“We’re honored to be invited to design the characters for this work. It is a new challenge to create designs based on the fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm. The story is a true surprise for all anime fans and we hope everyone will look forward to it,” CLAMP commented.
The title of the anime project is yet to be confirmed. Details will be revealed later.
