The streaming service Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream the television anime adaptation of Crimson and Anastasia Shestakova's Aoi Sekai no Chūshin de fantasy manga. The streams will debut worldwide (except in Japan) on Saturday, October 20 at 10:00 a.m. EDT.
The story re-imagines the real-life console wars as a fantasy tale — the Segua Kingdom is locked in an age-old war with the Ninterudo Empire for dominance of the land of Consume. Segua now finds itself on the defensive, but an unlikely hero has risen in the form of Gear, a boy who brags about his breakneck speed. Gear helps turn the tide of the war.
Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Destiny of the Shrine Maiden, High School DxD) is directing, and Maki Fujii (07-Ghost, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden) is designing the characters. Kouji Tsujitani (Freezing) is in charge of sound direction.
The cast includes:
- Nobuhiko Okamoto as Gear
- Hiro Shimono as Tezhilov
- Izumi Kitta as Opal
- Kouki Uchiyama as Til
- Suzuko Mimori as Nel
- Takehito Koyasu as Zelig
- Yukiko Monden as Ramses
- Atsushi Ono as Marcus
