Heroine from Kōshi Tachibana's light novel highlighted in March anime

The first character promotional video for the Date A Live television anime began airing in Japan this week. It centers around the heroine Tohka Yatogami and features the titular opening theme song by sweet Arms (a unit formed by voice actresses Iori Nomizu, Misuzu Togashi, Kaori Sadohara, and Misato).

The anime adapts Kōshi Tachibana's light novel series of the same name. The revealed cast includes:

Keitaro Motonaga (Getbackers, Jormungand) is directing the anime at AIC PLUS+ with visual director Hisashi Saito (Haganai, Heaven's Lost Property). Hideki Shirane (Hayate the Combat Butler, Queen's Blade: Rebellion) is charge of the series scripts, and Takaaki Suzuki (Strike Witches, Last Exile) is advising on the world setting, as he has done other anime and manga. Satoshi Ishino (Excel Saga, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu) is designing the characters based on Tsunako's original novel illustrations. Mika Akitaka (Martian Successor Nadesico, Galaxy Fraulein Yuna) is designing the mecha, and Go Sakabe (Gosick theme songs) is scoring the soundtrack with sound director Yasunori Ebina (A Certain Magical Index, Naruto) at Nippon Columbia. Sweet Arms is contributing the opening theme song.

The anime will stream in March before it premieres on television in April.
