P.A.WORKS Teases New “Buddy Anime Project”

P.A. Works buddy anime project


P.A.WORKS, the studio behind series including Ya Boy Kongming! and SHIROBAKO, has a new original anime project on the horizon. What is it? Well, we’re not entirely sure… yet.


Here’s what we know so far. The series is a “buddy anime,” and its official Twitter account is @BuddyD_project. The tweet from this new account was shared on the official P.A.WORKS English Twitter… which means they’re likely already eyeing up a global audience for their big reveal.

We also know who’s taking the two “buddy” leads, even if we only have silhouettes to go on so far for the characters. Toshiyuki Toyonaga and Kouki Uchiyama (Yūri Katsuki and Yuri Plisetsky in Yuri!!! on ICE) will be reuniting to play the two mystery roles.


That’s all the intel we have for now, but we’ll know more soon. A livestream on October 22 will be revealing more about the project. A YouTube link has been set up for the stream, but may not be available in all regions.
