Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed the anime Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky and plans to release it digitally and on home video.
The anime, which adapts Gust's Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky (Escha & Logy no Atelier: Tasogare no Sora no Renkinjutsushi) PlayStation 3 game, aired in Japan last spring. Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
The arrival of the "Dusk End" is at hand, and for those people in the western reaches of the Land of Dusk, time is precious and running out all too quickly. As the finality of their situation becomes a reality and fear and anxiousness sets in, an ancient art once called “Alchemy” is rediscovered, and in order to survive the Dusk End, great effort is put to the task of recreating this technology and gathering their progress in Central, where research into stopping the advance toward the Dusk End is taking place. Having learned the latest teachings in Central, young Logy makes his way to the woefully understaffed town of Colset to make use of his knowlodge. There he meets Escha, the local apprentice girl in the Research and Development Department. Logy, a seasoned user of alchemy, is astonished by Escha's radical use of technique in her own alchemic endeavors. Though they may not see eye to eye on certain things, they both know why they became alchemists: to help the people of their lands survive and advance. Together they will discover new alchemy techniques and bring the quiet town to life in the adventure of a lifetime: Atelier Escha & Logy ~Alchemists of the Dusk Sky~!
Gust shipped the original game in Japan in 2013 and the Atelier Escha & Logy Plus port for PlayStation Vita in January. Tecmo Koei America released the PS3 game in North America last March.
