July is almost upon us, and one of the most anticipated new anime premiering next month is most certainly the massive collaboration anime between Gen Urobuchi (Madoka Magica, Psycho-Pass and Aldnoah.Zero), Type-Moon’s Kinoku Nasu (Fate/ Stay Night, Kara no Kyoukai, and Tsukihime), Ryohgo Narita (Durarara!! and Baccano light novel author), Simadoriru (renowned Touhou doujin mangaka and illustrator), and Izuki Kougyoku (Mimizuku to Yoru no Ou and Dokuhakihime to Hoshi no Ishi light novel author). The series is titled Chaos Dragon, and the anime’s second PV has finally been streamed!
The video introduces two of the five main characters, who were introduced in our previous article as well as previews Chaos Dragon’s OP song titled “ISOtone” by Natsumi Kon. Each of the five main characters were created by one of the five legendary figures in the anime industry mentioned above.
The anime’s official twitter page also revealed three new additions to the anime’s cast, and they are all part of Donatia’s Black Dragon Knights, who are led by one of the five main characters, Soirot Clasbari (created by Type-Moon co-founder, Kinoko Nasu). The three new characters are:
- Ryohei Kimura (Haganai’s Kodaka Hasegawa and Kuroko’s Basketball’s Ryouta Kise) as Sol
- Aoi Yuuki (Madoka Magica’s Madoka Kaname and Symphogear’s Hibiki Tachibana) as Shaddy
- Ayaka Imamura (Absolute Duo’s Miyabi Hotaka) as Misuka
Silverlink./Connect will be animating this massive project with Meganebu! animation director, Masato Matsune at the helm of this project as the director. Ukyou Kodachi (Boruto: Naruto the Movie) will be in charge of the screenplay. Kodachi is also the co-creator of the Red Dragon tabletop RPG which this anime is based on, along with Rental Magica’s Makoto Sanda, and Kiyomune Miwa, who has worked on Fate/ Stay Night and Valvrave the Liberator.
