The official website of Tetsuro Araki and Production I.G's Guilty Crown television anime series began streaming a third promotional video on Wednesday. The website began streaming a second promotional video last month.
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 starting on October 13. The show will run until March.
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.
The anime is set in Japan in 2039, 10 years after the "Apocalypse Virus" devastated the land. The story revolves around Shū Ouma, an unsociable 17-year-old second-year high school student, and a 17-year-old rival named Gai Tsutsugami who is a young "Jiikundō" pilot of a guerilla organization.
Funimation will stream the series as it airs in Japan, and it will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc next year. The New York Anime Festival will screen the series' second episode before it airs in Japan.
