Silver Link's Ange Vierge TV Anime's July Premiere, Cast Revealed

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

A poster at the AnimeJapan 2016 event revealed on Thursday that Kadokawa and Sega's anime based on the Ange Vierge trading card game is premiering in July as a television anime. The poster also reveals the cast, and previews new visuals for the characters.

The cast includes:

SILVER LINK (Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Non Non Biyori) is producing the animation.

Two Kadokawa brands, Fujimi Shobo and Media Factory, released the Ange Vierge trading card game. The game features illustrations by popular artists, such as Kantoku (HENNEKO, Magical Suite Prism Nana), Kira Inugami (Student Council's Discretion, Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu), and abec (Sword Art Online).

The story of the card game follows what happens when "Hairō" portals suddenly open, fusing three different worlds together. As a result, various mysterious "Exceed" powers are awakened in teenaged girls. An academy for these so-called "Progress" girls is built on the isolated Seiran Island in the Pacific.

Four of the game's main characters are:

Miumi Hinata (voiced by Yūka Aisaka), a first-year student from the blue world, Earth
Illustrator: Kantoku (HENNEKO, Magical Suite Prism Nana)

Sofina (Mai Ishihara), the brilliant witch from the dark world, Darkness Embraces
Illustrator: Kira Inugami (Student Council's Discretion, Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu)

Aurora (Saori Hayami), the amnesiac girl from the red world, Terra Rubli Aurora
Illustrator: Kurehito Misaki (How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend)

SW=Code Omega 46 Senia (Kana Hanazawa), the android girl from the white world, System;White=E.G.M.A
Illustrator: abec (Sword Art Online)

The game already inspired two promotional anime by Production I.G and Point Pictures in 2013 and in 2014.

Fujimi Shobo and Media Factory first announced the game at an unveiling event in Tokyo's Akihabara district in 2013. The franchise has since expanded into a smartphone game and a manga adaptation — Ange Vierge Linkage — which ran in Kadokawa's Dragon Age magazine and on the ComicWalker app until March 2015. Mako Komao wrote the series with art by Sakaki Yoshioka. Fantasia Bunko Festival first made the new anime announcement in December 2014, and the game's official Twitter account repeated the announcement last October.
