The M3 The Dark Metal anime premiered in late April. Media distribution service and retailer Daisuki is streaming the television anime series as it airs in Japan.
The ensemble drama story follows four boys and four girls, team Gargouille's exploration of a mysterious space called the Avidya Domain in the science-fiction setting of near-future Tokyo.
