The North American entertainment label Maiden Japan announced on Wednesday that it licensed the 12-episode Shinkyoku Sōkai Polyphonica crimson S television anime series.
The original Polyphonica fantasy visual novel software and text novels are set on an alternate world where "Spirits" can exist alongside humans. There are "Dantists" who can play music and communicate with the Spirits, and Tatara Phoron is one such Dantist who is in contact with a spirit named Corticarte Apa Lagranges. The Shinkyoku Sōkai Polyphonica crimson S anime ties into Ichiro Sakaki and Noboru Kannatsuki's spinoff light novels of the same name. Sentai Filmworks previously licensed the original Polyphonica television anime series in 2009.
Maiden Japan and Section23 Films will release the anime digitally, and they will release the series with English subtitles on DVD this spring.
