The official "fan site" for Koei's Neo Angelique Abyss fantasy television animation series has posted a promotional video. (In the linked page, select the top-rightmost button.) The promotional video was first presented at "Neo Romance • à la mode 3," the event dedicated to Angelique, Haruka -Beyond the Stream of Time-, and the other Neo Romance games, manga, and anime that Koei has created for female gamers.
The movie contains no actual animation footage from the series that will air in the spring, but it does highlight the character designs from Kairi Yura (every Angelique title, The Story of Saiunkoku) and animation director Maki Fujioka (La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~ — another Neo Romance title). It also lists the series script editor Yuka Yamada (Haruka movie), director Shin Katagai (Eyeshield 21), the animation studio Yumeta Company (La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~), the ongoing manga's creator Mika Kajiyama, and the supervising staff of Ruby Party.
Like the original game, the anime takes place in a former paradise named Arcadia that now stands threatened by magical creatures named Tanatos. Arcadia's fate lies in two forces — the religious Celestia order of knights and the Artifact technology seekers — and in Angelique, the orphaned medical student who just might hold the key to Arcadia's throne.
