Production company Pony Canyon began streaming the second full promotional video for Devil Survivor 2 the Animation on Wednesday. The video features music by the composer livetune with Sekai no Owari band vocalist Fukase. (Japanese hip hop group Song Riders is performing the ending theme song.)
The anime series will adapt Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Nintendo DS role-playing game. In the story, 13 Devil Messengers face the end of the world by mysterious invaders in seven days.
Seiji Kishi (Persona 4 The Animation) is directing the series, and Yoshimichi Hirai is the assistant director at the studio Bridge. Makoto Uezu is in charge of the series scripts, and Kotaro Nakagawa (Zettai Karen Children) is scoring the music.
Atlus USA released the original Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Nintendo DS game in June 2009 in North America, and then released the enhanced port titled Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked in August 2011. Atlus released the Devil Survivor 2 video game in Japan in July 2011, and then Atlus USA released the game in North America in February 2012. Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Yozakura Quartet) drew the main character designs for all three games. The second game will be ported to the Nintendo 3DS system this summer under the name Devil Survivor 2: Break Code.
The original Devil Survivor game also inspired a manga adaptation from Satoru Matsuba (WARASIBE) that launched in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine last May.
The series will premiere on April 4 on MBS' "Animeism" programming block.
