News Guilty Crown Anime's Comic Market Ad Streamed
posted on 2011-08-10 13:00 EDT by Egan Loo
The official website for Tetsuro Araki and Production I.G's Guilty Crown television anime series began streaming a new 30-second commercial on Wednesday. The commercial will be presented at this week's Comic Market 80 event in Tokyo. Araki directed Death Note and Highschool of the Dead before this Aniplex project, which will air on Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina programming block this October. (The website is still streaming the anime's first promotional video from July.)
The anime is set in Japan in 2039, 10 years after the "Apocalypse Virus" devastated the land in an incident known as "Lost Christmas." A multinational orgnization known as GHQ brings the lawless country under control, but at the price of Japan's sovereignty. One day, an unsociable 17-year-old second-year high school student named Shū Ouma encounters Inori Yuzuriha, a female singer who is part of the resistance to liberate Japan. Together with Gai Tsutsugami (Shū's 17-year-old rival who is a young "Jiikundō" pilot in the resistance), Shū and Inori fight with mysterious innate abilities known as "imperial powers."
The series script supervisor is Hiroyuki Yoshino (Macross Frontier, My-HiME), while redjuice, the artist best known as the illustrator of the music group supercell, is working on the original character designs. The group supercell's leader ryo himself is composing the music.
