Joker Game Spy Anime Premieres on April 5

posted on by Jabulani Blyden

The official website of Production I.G's television anime of Kōji Yanagi's spy mystery novel Joker Game announced details on the broadcast premiere on Friday.

The anime will premiere on AT-X on April 5 at 11:00 p.m., before airing on Tokyo MX, MBS, TV Aichi, and BS 11.

The website also announced that it will distribute a free postcard and booklet for the show on March 13 at Animate Ikebukuro, at the show's pre-screening event on March 20, at Anime Japan on March 26-27, and at Akihabara's Gamers! shop on March 27.

The original novel is set in 1937, before World War II begins in earnest. Lieutenant Colonel Yūki of the Imperial Japanese Army forms the "D Agency," an army intelligence outfit under his command and tutelage. Army General Staff attaches Lieutenant Sakuma to observe the unit's performance. D Agency casts a wide net to find agents beyond Japanese military personnel, and Yūki establishes D Agency's tenets, which go against IJA doctrine: "Don't kill, don't get killed, don't get captured." With this, Yūki trains a team of operatives who conduct missions against domestic and foreign powers.
