The official Twitter account for the radio show for the upcoming television anime of the Muv-Luv Alternative spinoff novel Schwarzesmarken announced that Nozomi Yamamoto and Minami Tanaka will perform the ending theme for the anime. In addition, the project is accepting suggestions for a unit name for the duo until November 30.
The novel's story focuses on the 666th in 1983, 18 years before the events of the earlier serialized novel Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse. Both novels are spinoffs of Age's 2006 visual novel software Muv-Luv Alternative.
The anime's cast — who are reprising their roles from the upcoming PC games — includes:
Kenichi Suzumura as Theodor Eberbach
Minami Tanaka as Katia Waldheim
Nozomi Yamamoto as Irisdina Bernhard
Yoshino Nanjō as Lise Hohenstein
Kiyono Yasuno as Gretel Jeckeln
Chika Anzai as Anett Hosenfeld
Emiri Katō as Pham Thi-Rang
Michiyo Murase as Sylvia Kschessinska
Kenta Miyake as Walther Krüger
Yukari Tamura as Beatrix Brehmer
Ken Narita as Heinze Axmann
Manami Numakura as Circe Steinhoff
Tetsuya Watanabe (Strain: Strategic Armored Infantry, Zone of the Enders, Rumbling Hearts) is directing the series at Ixtl and LIDEN FILMS. Tatsuto Higuchi (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon, Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman) is handling the series composition, Shuichi Hara (Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World ) is adapting CARNELIAN's original character designs, Satoshi Motoyama is serving as sound director, Evan Call is the music producer, and Elements Garden is in charge of the music. Sanzigen is handling the show's 3DCGI.
fripSide is performing the anime's opening theme song "white forces." The duo is also performing the theme song "1983-Schwarzesmarken-" for the Schwarzesmarken: Kōketsu no Monshō (Schwarzesmarken: Crest of Red Blood) PC game that the company Age will debut on November 27.
Hiroki Uchida wrote the novel's scenario, and CARNELIAN designed the characters and provided illustrations. Age's Hirohiko Yoshida is credited as the original creator. The novel ran for 41 chapters from 2011 to 2014 and was compiled into seven volumes. The novel was succeeded by the Schwarzesmarken Requiem light novel series by the same author and artist.
The novels have two upcoming PC games, titled Schwarzesmarken Kōketsu no Monshō (Crest of Red Blood) and Schwarzesmarken Junkyōsha-tachi (Martyrs, this is a tentative title). Schwarzesmarken Kōketsu no Monshō will ship in Japan on November 27, and Schwarzesmarken Junkyōsha-tachi is slated for winter.
