Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm Adult Game Gets TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Twitter account for the game brands sprite/fairys announced on Thursday that a television anime adaptation of the upcoming adult game Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm: Beyond the sky, into the firmament has been green-lit. The brand sprite describes the game's genre as an "adventure game in which girls ride the skies and fall in love."
The story is set in an archipelago of four islands far south of Japan or even the South Seas. It is all but a different world from modern Japan. From the discovery of anti-gravitons came the dream invention of anti-graviton shoes ("grash") that let people fly the skies. They introduce people to a new realm by enabling flight with just one's own body strength, without feathers or engines. This led to the rise of the sport of "Flying Circus" (dogfight race).
The protagonist who once hoped for a future in this sport suffered a setback due to an overwhelming defeat, and withdrew from the sport for this and some other reason. However, he met the transfer student Haruka Kurashina, and in teaching her to fly the skies, the old passion returned. He takes part in the Flying Circus again.
The game features planner and main scenario writer Nachi Kio (The Fruit of Grisaia), as well as scenario writers Ryōichi Watanabe (Harumade, Kururu) and Ryūsuke Mutsu (Sakaagari Hurricane). Suzumori is serving as art director and co-designing the characters with Itsuka Yūki. Elements Garden is scoring the soundtrack, and Mami Kawada is contributing the theme song and "grand ending theme song." KOTOKO is contributing an insert song.
Below are the opening movies and Comic Market 85 promotional movie for the game:
The game will ship for Windows PCs on November 28.
