GoRA, the anonymous seven-author collective behind the K anime franchise, and production company King Records are officially teaming up to release a new original TV anime project titled AYAKA, which will broadcast sometime in 2023.
A teaser visual and trailer were released, along with main cast and staff details:

The story follows Yukito Yanagi, an orphan who one day encounters an eccentric disciple of his father’s. The strange man takes him to his birthplace on Ayakajima, made up of seven islands where mysterious beings called “Mitama” and dragons are rumored to reside. There, Yukito meets his father’s two other disciples, who protect the harmony of Ayakajima… which soon threatens to collapse.
