Just found out this week that Danny Choo has started up his own anime production studio called Mirai Fusion. They currently have 2 projects in the works. First is Chinka (pictured above from Danny's website) which is an original story from a group called Hibuse. It's about a girl named Chinka, with the power to smell out fires, who joins the Mizuneko Fire Brigade to help track down a legendary arsonist.
Since a few years ago, there have been many cases of arson.
In the rural town of Kiyotaki, situated in a beautiful mountain valley, the town folks are talking about the legendary arsonist, Akaneko [赤猫].
The police have completely given up on Akaneko, who has slipped through their fingers every time.
The town's only hope is its one and only firefighting team - the Mizuneko [水猫] Fire Brigade. But because of their destructive fire fighting ways, they too are feared by the town folk. Almost every night, Akaneko and the Mizuneko Fire Brigade fight fiercely, taking down many of the town's buildings in the process. The Mizuneko Fire Brigade have depleted most of the town's financial resources so the town ends up on the verge of bankruptcy. The town was in a critical state when Chinka, a girl with a superhuman ability to smell out fires appears. With her powers, the Mizuneko Fire Brigade close in on the true identity of Akaneko...

The second anime does not have a title yet, but he has hinted in this article that it will feature his mascot character Mirai (or atleast a character with the same hairstyle) and be distributed for free.
I really like the character designs for the Chinka anime, and hope it turns out well. Read more On "Danny Choo Reveals New Anime Project"!
