Hideaki Anno to craft new live-action TV series

Hideaki Anno is at his best on the rare times when he’s allowed to work on projects without “Evangelion” in the title, and it appears another is coming up. This October, the live-action drama Ando Lloyd~ A.I. Knows Love?~ will air in Japan, with Anno as a collaborator (as is Diebuster/Evangelion Rebuild/FLCL‘s director Kazuya Tsurumaki). The series will focus on a time-traveling android with the conspicuous name of Ando Lloyd, sent into the past to protect the widow of the scientist responsible for his creation (also, he looks just like the dead scientist. Drama!). It sort of sounds like Terminator meets Maison Ikkoku to me, but the talent attached is intriguing.
