Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle's 2nd Promo Video Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Puzzle anime by Sunrise, Junichi Sato (Kaleido Star, Princess Tutu) to debut this fall

The public broadcaster NHK began streaming the second special promotional movie for the Phi-Brain - Kami no Puzzle television anime series on Friday. Sunrise is producing this original anime for the NHK Educational TV channel.

The school adventure story revolves around Kaito, a puzzle-loving freshman at the private high school named "Root Academy." He is selected as a candidate for "Phi Brain" for his extraordinary mental skills. One day, he and his childhood friend Nonoha tackle the "unsolvable puzzle" hidden in the underground ruins near the school. They are guided by the mobile device given to Kaito by the student council president.

The puzzle is the "philosopher's puzzle," a life-threatening creation of a mysterious intelligence group known as "POG." When he defeats the puzzle, he is designated as a "Solver." Together with Nonoha and other Solvers, Kaito battles POG at "philosopher's puzzles" all over the world.

Junichi Satō (Kaleido Star, Princess Tutu, Tamayura) is directing off scripts supervised by Mayori Sekijima (Saber Marionette J, Star Ocean EX, Jyūshin Enbu - Hero Tales). Hajime Yatate, the collective penname for the creative staff at Sunrise, is credited with the original story.

The anime wil premiere in Japan this fall.
