Zenonzard The Animation Episode 1 Slated for January

posted on by Egan Loo, Jennifer Sherman

Bandai began streaming "Episode 0" of the Zenonzard: The Animation series with English subtitles on Tuesday, and the episode ended with an announcement that the first regular episode, "Code01: Hinaria -Hidden Relic-", will begin streaming in January 2020.

Kei Oikawa (Uma Musume Pretty Derby, Hinamatsuri) is directing the anime at the studio 8-Bit (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Infinite Stratos). Kenichirō Katsura (ToHeart2ad, Macross 7) is designing the characters.

Zenonzard is the first project in AI Carddass, Bandai's new brand that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with its long-running Carddass trading card franchise. Boogiepop series author Kouhei Kadono is collaborating on the project's story concepts and world building. In the game, players wage card game battles with the assistance of AI known as Codeman.

Zenonzard: The Animation is part of the overall Zenonzard media franchise, as is the smartphone card game app Zenonzard. Bandai launched the app on Tuesday and began streaming "Episode 0" of the anime. In addition to Tuesday's streaming, the episode will run on the Tokyo MX and BS11 television channels on September 13.
