Cross Ange: Rondo of Angels and Dragons
Humanity has advanced to great heights since it obtained the information technology known as "Mana." With that nearly magical power, problems like war, food shortages, and pollution have been eliminated. This age of peace and freedom, the Empress Angelese of the Misurugi Empire is a privileged girl with no disabilities. She learns, however, that she is a "Norma," a kind of human who cannot use Mana and are outcasts of society. Having lost everything, she is sent to an isolated island. There she meets other Normas who ride in humanoid weapons called Para-mails, protecting the world from dragons invaders from another dimension.
Yoshiharu Ashino (Tweeny Witches) is directing the anime at Sunrise and Tatsuto Higuchi is handling series composition. Yuusuke Matsuo is providing the concepts for the characters while Sayaka Ono is designing the characters. Singer and songwriter Akiko Shikata (Ar Tonelico series, Tales of Symphonia the Animation: The United World Episode theme song performance) is scoring the soundtrack and Nana Mizuki performs the opening theme song while Eri Kitamura handles the ending theme.
Cross Ange: Rondo of Angels and Dragons (Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryū no Rondo) premiered on Tokyo MX, Mainichi Hoso, TV Aichi, and Nippon BS Broadcasting on the 4th of October 2014. Crunchyroll licensed the series in Canada, The United States and Latin America.
