The official website for the Gen'ei o Kakeru Taiyō or Il Sole Penetra le Illusioni (The Sun Penetrates the Illusions) television anime series opened with a promotional video on Saturday.
The promotional video reveals that Mai Kadowaki, Eri Kitamura, Sora Tokui, and Yuiko Tatsumi lead the cast. A stage event with the four main cast members will announce the latest information about the characters, staff, and other aspects of the project at Anime Contents Expo 2013 in Chiba on March 30.
The series will premiere this July. A preview website registered by the production company Aniplex had opened last week with the Italian title and a spinning image of The Sun tarot card (XIX).
