News Anime on Demand Adds Busou Shinki
Anime on Demand has posted on its facebook page that its fourth Autumn simulcast will be the series Busou Shinki. Adapted from Konami's line of armed female action figures, the story is set in a future where"Shinki" are 15-centimeter-tall cute partners made to assist humans. These Shinki can even be equipped with weapons and armor to fight each other. Three Shinki serve a high school freshman named Rihito (Takahiro Mizushima). Things change when a new Shinki, the bellicose Strarf (Minori Chihara), joins them.
An advertisement, below, features the opening theme song "Install x Dream" sung by cast members Kana Asumi, Minori Chihara, Kaori Mizuhashi, and Megumi Nakajima. Azusa will perform the ending theme song "Taiyō no Sign." The official website for the series is also streaming three promotional videos.
Yasuhito Kikuchi (Infinite Stratos, Macross Frontier) is directing the anime at studio 8-Bit. Takahiro Kishida (Madoka Magica) and Ryouma Ebata (Blue Exorcist) are handling character designs, and Ebata is also serving as chief animation director.
Anime on Demand previously announced that all six of its new Autumn simulcasts will be available free on the website.
