posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the television anime of Takehaya's Rokujyōma no Shinryakusha!? (Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) light novel series began streaming the third promotional video and TV spot for the series on Thursday. The videos feature the anime's opening theme song, ""Kōkan Win-Win Mujōken" (Good Feeling Win-Win Unconditional) by Heart♡Invader.
Kōtarō: I, Kōtarō Satomi, began my life living alone when I entered high school. And so, this is my room that has become my castle: Room 106 in Korona Apartments.
Text: No deposit, no gratuity money, no maitenance fees. Monthly rent of 5,000 yen (about Us$50). A reasonable find.
Kōtarō: However, all of a sudden, something appears that shakes up my new, rose-colored high school life and my 6-tatami room!
Kōtarō: What... What are you!?
Text: Invader 1: Ghost girl
Sanae: I'm a ghost girl who's haunting this place.
Text: Invader 2: Self-proclaimed magical girl
Yurika: There's a lot of magical power gathering here!
Text: Invader 3: Underground dweller (& Haniwa summoner)
Karama: I'm Karama, daho!
Koromo: I'm Koromo, daho!
Kiriha: If you'll let us stay, I'll give you quite the thank-you.
Text: Invader 4: Alien empress
Theia: I'll kill you all right now!
Kōtarō: H... Huh!?
Shizuka: A ghost, an underground dweller, an alien, and a cosplay girl are all fighting against each other for this room... It's hard to believe, but I guess I have to...
Text: The curtain has opened on an immoral battle fought over a 6-tatami room!!
Sanae: I've been living here longer! So get out!
Kōtarō: What are you doing to my room!?
Theia: Don't squeeze them, you dork!
Kiriha: It's time for our invasion plan!
Karama & Koromo: It's time for invasion, daho!
Yurika: Actually, there's a great danger approaching this room!
Text: There's something... In this room!?
Theia: All right! Now for the final blow!
Kiriha: Karama! Koromo!
Karama & Koromo: Good idea!
Kōtarō: What the heck is this!?
Text: A high-energy harem comedy! Sometimes harsh, and sometimes loose. Will the invasion really go as planned?
Shizuka: You all!
Kōtarō: No matter what anyone says, this room is mine! I won't give it to anyone!!
Text: A strange cohabitation with invaders begins.
Kōtarō: What... What are you!?
Kōtarō: A ghost, magical girl (self-proclaimed), underground dweller (big breasts), and an alien (empress; no breasts) have all invaded my room! I won't give this room to anyone!!
Text: A high-energy harem comedy!
Kōtarō: Rokujyōma no Shinryakusha!? The invasion begins in July!
The cast includes:
Ayana Taketatsu as Karama, a haniwa (clay grave figure)
Aoi Yuki as Korama, another haniwa
The "apartment comedy" centers around Kōtarō Satomi, a boy who started to live by himself to attend a high school. He fortunately discovered a very cheap, tiny (six-mat or rokujyōma) room for 5,000 yen (about US$50) a month, and began his new life there. However, when he moved into that room 106 in the Korona complex, some unexpected "roommates" began appearing one by one.
Heart♡Invader, a vocal unit with members Nichika Omori, Eri Suzuki, Masumi Tazawa, and Maria Naganawa, will perform the opening theme song titled, "Kōkan Win-Win Mujōken" (Good Feeling Win-Win Unconditional). Yūki and Taketatsu's musical unit Petit milady is contributing their third single, "Ending" as the anime's ending theme song.
Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, ef: a tale of melodies) will direct the anime at animation studio Silver Link (Dusk maiden of Amnesia, Kokoro Connect), and original creator Takehaya will serve as series director. Poko provided the original character designs, and Hideki Furukawa will adapt the character designs for the anime, and will also act as storyboard director. Shogo Yasukawa will handle series composition, Ryosuke Nakanishi will score the soundtrack, and Zero-A will produce the music.
Takehaya launched the light novel series with illustrations by Poco in 2009, and Hobby Japan published the 15th volume in February. Tomosane Ariike started a manga adaptation on Hobby Japan's Comic Dangan website last December. The light novels already inspired an original promotional movie with some animated footage by director Shinichi Watanabe and Silver Link in 2010.
