The official website for the Aldnoah.Zero television anime by writer Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero, Psycho-Pass, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet) announced on Saturday that pop trio Kalafina will perform the opening theme song, while the series' composer Hiroyuki Sawano will perform the ending theme song. The website also added a new key visual:
The series' second television commercial includes the following narration:
Even though that time will surely come, I don't even have the time to prepare myself for it.
At that moment, what kind of regret will I have?
But I can't bear it to just patiently wait.
The first commercial outlined the premise of the story: In 1972, a hypergate was discovered on the surface of the moon. However, war breaks between humans on Earth and those who immigrated to Mars.
The main cast for the July anime includes:
He is anything but passionate, and he operates on logic, rather than emotions.
Kensho Ono as Slaine Troyard
His family were relative newcomers among those who migrated from Earth to Mars.
Sora Amamiya as Asseylum Vers Allushia
She is a pacifist who carries the aura of a princess.
Fate/Zero director Ei Aoki (Ga-Rei: Zero, The Garden of Sinners, Wandering Son) is directing the project at A-1 Pictures and TROYCA. Katsuhiko Takayama is in charge of the series scripts. Manga artist Takako Shimura (Wandering Son, Sweet Blue Flowers) provided the original character designs, which Atsuko Matsumoto is adapting for the anime. I-IV and Kenji Teraoka are designing the mecha, and Hiroyuki Sawano is scoring the music.
The series will premiere this July.
