posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the Chaos Dragon television anime series announced on Friday that Chika Anzai (Sky Wizards Academy's Amie, Chaika - The Coffin Princess's Chaika) will play Ibuki's twin sister Inori. The character was thought to have been killed with Nil Kamui's previous king during the Seven-Year War. However, she suddenly reappears as Donatia's candidate to be the small country's next ruler.
The anime's 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 cast includes:
Marina Inoue as Ibuki, a descendant of the royal family of Nil Kamui. Created by Simadoriru.

The anime premiered on Tokyo MX TV, KBS Kyoto, BS11, and Sun TV on July 2.
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.
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).
