The official Japanese website for Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, the Tenchi Muyo! anime spinoff that has been in development for a decade, has begun streaming its second 74-second trailer with no animation. The new trailer showcases the anime characters — including some that have not been revealed before — against the backdrop of preliminary background images. Those characters include the main character Kenshi Masaki, Princess Rashara Aasu XXVIII, the royal guard pilot Kyaia Furan, the weaponry instructor Mezaia Furan, the student mechanic Wauanrii Shume, Princess Aura Shurifon, Doll, Yukine, and Maria.
The story is set in an alternate world called Geminar, where countries have fought endless wars with replicas of humanoid Seikishi weapons that they found in ancient ruins. 15-year-old Kenshi Masaki, the half-brother of Tenchi Muyo! protagonist Tenchi Masaki, is summoned from another world to Geminar. Tenchi Muyo! and Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure creator Masaki Kajishima is overseeing the animators at AIC and BeStack. Koji Yoshikawa (D.N.Angel, Baki the Grappler) will be directing off scripts supervised by Hideki Shirane (Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Girl's High, Zoids: Fuzors).
