The official Japanese website for Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, the Tenchi Muyo! anime spinoff that has been in development for a decade, began streaming the third 74-second advance promotional video on Tuesday.
The school romantic comedy with robot action elements is set in an alternate world called Geminar, where countries have fought endless wars with replicas of humanoid Seikishi weapons that they found in ancient ruins. 15-year-old Kenshi Masaki, the half-brother of Tenchi Muyo! protagonist Tenchi Masaki, is summoned from another world to Geminar. Tenchi Muyo! and Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure creator Masaki Kajishima is overseeing the animators at AIC and BeStack. Koji Yoshikawa (D.N.Angel, Baki the Grappler) will be directing off scripts supervised by Hideki Shirane (Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Girl's High, Zoids: Fuzors).
The first episode will premiere on Animax's pay-per-view service in Japan from March 20 to 31. The first of 13 planned episodes will be available for DVD rental in Japan on April 22. The retail DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases will be available in May.
