Bandai & Toei's 2nd Majin Bone Anime Promo Introduces Story

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

TV Tokyo began streaming the second promotional video for the Majin Bone anime series on Tuesday. The video introduces the story and the main cast.

"This story began before Earth was born. Majin, the creator of the Universe, has been resurrected in the present day." Kenn will star as Shōgo Ryūjin, an ordinary high school student who transforms into the Bone Fighter Dragonbone with the Bone Card in order to save Earth. The cast also includes Hiroki Yasumoto as Rhinobone/Tyrone, Hiroyuki Yoshino as Jaguarbone/Antonio, and Shinnosuke Tachibana as Sharkbone/Luke. Together, these White Bone warriors stand up to Dark Bone, a foe that appeared from darkness to devastate Earth. However, "could the true enemy be ourselves?"

The January 2014 issue of Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine announced the digital card game project in December. Shueisha is launching a manga version by Naoya Sugita (Zan, SWOT) in the magazine. Bandai is credited with the original plan, and Izumi Todo, the collective pseudonym for Toei Animation's staff, is credited with the original story.

Yūsuke Murata (Eyeshield 21, One-Punch Man) is in charge of the original character designs for the new anime, and Hideki Ishikawa did the original CG character designs. The anime will premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on April 1.
