Polyphonica to Reportedly Get New TV Anime This Spring
posted on by Egan Loo
The Tamatowa blog reports that a bookstore has a poster advertising a new television anime adaptation this spring for the Shinkyoku Sōkai Polyphonica visual novel software series. The advertisement emphasizes in Japanese that next spring's anime is intended as a new take on the story and adds in English that it will have "brand new staff, brand new visual, [and] brand new story." The poster uses the cover image from the first volume of Ichiro Sakaki and Noboru Kannatsuki's Shinkyoku Sōkai Polyphonica Crimson S light novel adaptation. Sakaki co-wrote the original Polyphonica visual novel software as well as Scrapped Princess, Strait Jacket, The Magician's Academy, and CODE-E. Kannatsuki drew illustrations for the original visual novels.
T.O Entertainment, Inc. and Ginga-ya already produced an anime series which ran on Japanese television last spring. The original story of Polyphonica is set on an alternate world where "Spirits" can exist alongside humans. There are "Dantists" who can play music and communicate with the Spirits, and Tatara Phoron is one such Dantist who is in contact with a spirit named Corticarte Apa Lagranges.
