The official website for the Aoi Sekai no Chūshin de anime announced on Friday that the TOKYO MX channel will broadcast the second episode of the anime on December 27 at 11:00 p.m. The second episode, titled “Killer,” is also scheduled to run on the AT-X channel, although a date has not been announced yet.
The anime adaptation of Crimson and Anastasia Shestakova's manga aired the first episode on October 20, with Nobuhiko Okamoto (A Certain Magical Index's Accelerator) and Suzuko Mimori (Btooom!'s Himiko) as Gear and Nel respectively. 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. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the series.
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.
