posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Bushiroad revealed a new television anime and trading card game project titled Luck and Logic on Tuesday. The television anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS 11 on January 9, while the trading card game will ship on February 28, with three starter decks. Bushiroad also began streaming a promotional video for the anime, which reveals the anime's cast and staff.
The anime and game are set in a world where a concept known as "Logic" governs all aspects of life, including emotions, talent, memories, and even gods. The website describes the story:
In L.C. 922, people faced a sudden crisis.
In Tetra Heaven, the land of legend, a hundred years of war had come to a close. The gods who lost the war searched for a new place to live, and found it in Septpia, the human world, which they proceeded to attack. The Logicalists attached to ALCA, a special police agency whose duty it was to protect cities from assaults by foreigners (angels), were compelled to act in defense of cities, whether they wished to or not.
And depending on their ability, Logicalists could initiate trance with goddesses from the other world, and stand a fighting chance on the battlefield.
A civilian named Yoshichika Tsurugi, who lacked "Logic" and lived happily with his family, was caught up in an attack, and took shelter along with many people. He meets a beautiful goddess named Athena. In her hands, she had the "Logic" that Yoshichika lacked. Now both Yoshichika and Athena head to their destiny.
The cast includes:
Kenshō Ono as Yoshichika Tsurugi (left) and Sumire Uesaka as Athena (right), with combined Trance form (bottom)
Aimi as Yukari Nanahoshi
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Orga Brakechild
- Hozumi Gôda as Genno Yaruno
- Ai Kayano as Shiori Tsurugi
- Kana Ueda as Pieri
- Ryū Nakatani as Quetzalcoatl
- Suzuko Mimori as Logigraph
- Kōsuke Toriumi as Lucifer
Koichi Chigira (Gate Keepers, Full Metal Panic!, Ryo) and Takashi Naoya (A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Selector Infected Wixoss episode animation director) will direct the anime at Doga Kobo. Yuuya Takahashi (2015 Lupin III, Laughing Under the Clouds) is in charge of series composition and is also credited with the original concept. Mari Shimazaki (Bayonetta game) drew the original character and concept designs, while Rei Aoi (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Psychic School Wars key animation) and Katsuhiro Kumagai (Samurai Flamenco, Witch Craft Works, Selector Spread Wixoss animation director) are desigining the characters for animation. Kenji Andou (Karas, King of Thorn, Rage of Bahamut) is responsible for creature design, while Hiroshi Tani (Majestic Prince, Plastic Memories) and Makoto Kobayashi (Space Battleship Yamato 2199, Last Exile, Simoun) are handling mechanical design. Norimitsu Kaihō from Nitroplus is credited with "setting cooperation." Tatsuya Katou (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Comet Lucifer, Celestial Method) will compose the music.
Kenshō Ono is performing the anime's opening theme "STORY," while Emi Nitta will perform the ending theme "Meiyaku no Kanata."
A one-minute anime short titled Watashi-tachi Rakuroji-bu! (We Are the Luck and Logic Club!) will air before each episode. A two-hour television special will also air on December 31. The staff will provide more details about the special at a later date.
Update: Bushiroad is also streaming a promotional video for the trading card game.
