Chaos Dragon TV Anime Adds More Cast, Streams Kōran Trailer
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The website also revealed the following cast, but has not yet given official romanizations for the character names. (ANN has listed phonetic versions of these names for now):
Rō Chenfa: The land of Kōran is the oldest, yet the newest... This is because Revo, the mother of the king of Kōran, has controlled everything. We are all in the territory of the king and Revo. All of the civillians under Revo's rule are fated to serve her. The good and the bad... Men and women... War and peace... The one who guides all of these is the Tao. Under the flag of Kōran, we will obtain endless influence. Something like declaring independence on paper is but a trifle. I will bring dominance and wealth to you. In the first place, we have already absorbed Nil Kamui. After all, the lands on this planet belonged to Lady Revo in the first place. This is natural. We will release humanity from the rule of the dragons. ...Well, this is just a front. Just a boast. I only wish for one thing... Yes... This island's uprising will surely make my beloved sword Chisha Tiendi moist...
The story takes place in the sparkling era year 3015, where the great nations Donatia and Kōran divide the world in a cold war as they fight for supremacy. In the middle of this standoff is island country Nil Kamui, which has lost its independence.
The main characters and cast members include:
Maaya Uchida as Rō Chenfa, an assassin from a religious organization in Kōran. Created by Gen Urobuchi.
Houchu Ohtsuka as the Red Dragon (one of only seven dragons in the world and the guardian diety of Nil Kamui)
Kouichi Yamadera as Agito, leader of the revolutionary army
Nozomi Furuki as Mashiro, a girl who was with Ibuki at an orphanage in Nil Kamui
Haruka Watanabe as Kai, who lived in an orphanage after losing both parents in the Seven-Year War between Nil Kamui and Kōran
Additional cast includes:
The project is based on Red Dragon, the "role-playing fiction" story born from the "table talk role-playing game" sessions by five prominent anime, game, and art creators. The five Red Dragon participants were Gen Urobuchi (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero), Kinoko Nasu (Kara no Kyōkai - the Garden of sinners, Fate/stay night, Lunar Legend Tsukihime), Izuki Kōgyoku (Mimizuku to Yoru no Ō, Mama, Garden Lost), Simadoriru (illustrator), and Ryohgo Narita (Baccano!, Durarara!!). Each participant created a character to guide through six nights of tabletop role-playing game sessions devised by "fiction master" Makoto Sanda (Rental Magica, Record of Lodoss War).
The website Sai-zen-sen serialized the compiled transcripts of the Red Dragon role-playing sessions.
Also as part of the project, there is a board game titled Chaos Dragon: Haō Shunjū. The "story-telling game's" plot revolves around seven heroes (controlled by the players) who fight in an endless war. The smartphone game Chaos Dragon: Konton Senso (Chaos Dragon: Chaos War) is scheduled to begin service this summer for iOS and Android devices. Scenario-writers for the game include Carlo Zen, Yoichiro Koizumi, Ukyō Kodachi from Team Barrel Roll, Makoto Sanda, Ryohgo Narita, Jin Haganeya (Guilty Crown episode scripts), and Shunsaku Yano, among others. Participating illustrators include Cheese Gouda (Gundam: Reconguista in G designs), Shimadoriru, sime, Take, Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King), Peach-Pit (Shugo Chara!), and minoa from nitroplus. Sakimoto is composing the game's music.
Masato Matsune (Fate/Prototype CG supervisor, Meganebu! opening storyboarder and animation director) is directing the television anime at SILVERLINK./CONNECT. Team Barrel Roll's Ukyō Kodachi (Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road, Macross Frontier novels) is in charge of the series scripts with assistance by Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, EUREKA SEVEN AO).
Inoue and Saitō will appear at an advance screening of the first three episodes and a talk show in Tokyo on June 20.
