The Animax television channel has begun streaming a video from the announcement event for the Viper's Creed television anime series. The video includes one minute of preliminary pilot footage at the 8:23 mark. The story is set in the middle of the 21st century and revolves around the members of a private military company (PMC). There is uneasy tension between them and the regular military as they deal with terrorism and the aftermath of a war that caused massive environmental destruction.
Chief director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed, Megazone 23 Part III, MADOX-01) is working with director Hiroyuki Kanbe (Le Chevalier D'Eon, Chrono Crusade episode director) on the project. The animation studios AIC Spirits (Ga-Rei: Zero, Tokko) and Digital Frontier (Resident Evil: Degeneration, Appleseed) are collaborating. Takaya Kuroda and Megumi Toyoguchi star as Saiki and Sakurako, respectively. The series will premiere in Japan in January.
