Takara Tomy began streaming the first promotional video for the television anime adaptation of its Beast Saga franchise on Thursday. The video includes an introduction to the series by "beast producer" Lion Yokoyama followed by a 30-second promotional video with anime clips.
Beast Saga takes place on a distant planet in our galaxy called Beast where three beast tribes — the Sea Tribe, the Land Tribe, and the Sky Tribe — fight for their honor. Each of the tribes protect an infinite elemental power source called "Godlot."
Katsumi Ono (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Hataraki Man) is directing the series at the animation studio Synergy SP. Michihiro Tsuchiya (Cross Game, Major, Kimikiss pure rouge) is handling the series composition, and Yoshihiro Nagamori (Bakugan Battle Brawlers, Beyblade: Metal Fusion) is in charge of character design.
The franchise includes a manga by Manabu Honjō, hobby toys, and a dice battle game.
