posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Both series to premiere in Japan on January 11

North American anime distributor Aniplex of America announced on Thursday that it will stream both the Sekai Seifuku - Bōryaku no Zvezda (World Conquest Zvezda Plot) and the Nisekoi television anime series starting in January. The company will reveal additional details about both streams at a later date, and announced that it has plans to release both series on home video.

Aniplex of America is also streaming an English-subtitled trailer for World Conquest.

Aniplex of America describes the World Conquest anime as follows:

Every leader of the past has thought of it… but all they have done was to merely dream of its greatness.

WORLD DOMINATION…nobody has been able to achieve it. Until one little girl by the name of KATE HOSHIMIYA came along. KATE HOSHIMIYA will shock the world!

How was she was able to carry out such a MAGNIFICENT stunt? So FRIGHTFUL! So GLORIOUS!

Could this be…the ZVEZDA PLOT?!

Let the light of our great ZVEZDA shine upon this land far and wide!

The show will star Misaki Kuno as Kate Hoshimiya, Natsuki Hanae as Asuta Jimon, Kana Hanazawa as Professor Um, Erii Yamazaki as Roboko, Kousuke Toriumi as Yasu, Mariya Ise as Itsuka Shikabane, Minoru Hirota as Gorō Shikabane, MAO as Renge Komadori, and Minako Kotobuki as Miki Shirasagi.

Tensai Okamura (Blue Exorcist, Darker than Black, Wolf's Rain) is directing the brand-new television anime at A-1 Pictures. Type-Moon's Meteo Hoshizora and Okamura are in charge of the series scripts. Kouhaku Kuroboshi (Allison & Lillia, Kino's Journey, Sky Girls) created the original character designs, and Keigo Sasaki (Blue Exorcist, Night Raid 1931) is adapting them for animation.

Tatsuya Katou (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Medaka Box) is composing the music. Maaya Sakamoto and rock group "the band apart" perform the opening theme, while voice actress Aoi Yūki performs the ending theme.

The series will premiere on Tokyo MX TV and other stations on January 11 at midnight.

Nisekoi adapts Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi romantic comedy manga. The anime revolves around Raku Ichijō (Kouki Uchiyama), a normal high school student who happens to be the heir to a yakuza group. The attractive but violent transfer student Chitoge Kirisaki (Nao Tōyama), the heir to a rival yakuza group, transfers to his class, and the two must pretend to date to keep a war from breaking out between their families.

The series will also star Kana Hanazawa (Kobato., Steins;Gate) as Kosaki Onodera, Mikako Komatsu (Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live, K) as Seishirō Tsugumi, Yumi Uchiyama (Binbogami ga!, The Devil Is a Part-Timer!) as Ruri Miyamoto, Yuuki Kaji (Guilty Crown, Attack on Titan) as Shū Maiko, Takehito Koyasu (Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World, Bakuman.) as Claude, and Kana Asumi (Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream) as Marika Tachibana. Akiyuki Shinbo (Madoka Magica, Bakemonogatari) will direct the anime at animation studio SHAFT. Musical duo ClariS will perform the opening theme song "CLICK."

Nisekoi will also premiere in Japan on January 11.

Viz Media is releasing the original manga digitally and in print.
