The official website for the Arata: The Legend (Arata Kangatari) anime began streaming a new promotional video for the upcoming anime adapted from Yuu Watase's manga on Wednesday. The video features the song "The Misfit Go" by OLDCODEX, which will be the series' ending theme. The show will premiere on TV Tokyo on April 8, and on AT-X on April 16.
The promotional video confirms the show's main cast:
Kenji Yasuda (Shugo Chara!, Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth - The Animation) and Woo Hyun Park (assistant director for Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie) are directing the series at studio Satelight. Kô Ôtani (Haibane Renmei, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Shakugan no Shana) is handling the music, and Sphere is performing the opening theme song.
In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, Arata has the unfortunate honor of being the successor to the matriarchal Hime Clan. This means he has to pretend to be a girl or face death if his true gender is discovered! On the day of his inauguration, an assassination plot forces him to flee - and he somehow winds up in modern-day Japan! Meanwhile, a boy named Arata Hinohara gets sucked into the first Arata's world and finds himself dealing with people after his life!
