Ragnastrike Angels Game About 38-Meter Fighting Girls Gets TV Anime Shorts

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Alleged "world's shortest anime series" episodes will run for 30-seconds

The official website for DINGO Inc, Aniplex Mobile, and DMM Games' Ragnastrike Angels smartphone and PC game announced on Friday that it will be adapted into the "world's shortest (probably) anime series" by Satelight. The studio will produce a total of 12 episodes, each running about 30 seconds.

The "3D real-time battle action game" stars fighting girls whose size is increased to 38 meters (about 125 feet) tall. Players assume the role of a special commander of the girls' Ragnastrikers unit to fight the mysterious enemy Fiaremu. The game is slated for release this summer. DMM began streaming a promotional video for the game and anime on Friday.

The anime's first episode will premiere on April 2 at about 24:56:00 and will air on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS11 channels and also stream on Nico Nico Douga.

Jun'ichi Wada (The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan) will direct the shorts at Satelight. Tōru Imanishi (M3 the dark metal, AKB0048 next stage animation director) will design the characters for animation, and Thomas Romain (Macross Delta, Senki Zesshō Symphogear GX) will provide the art.

The game and shorts' cast members include Tomoyo Kurosawa as Ayano Anemori (pictured above), Inori Minase as Moka Mihime, Ayane Sakura as Nagisa Nanami, Maaya Uchida as Izuki Kanomiya, Mai Fuchigami as Hinata Tōjō, Aoi Yūki as Kasumi Barnette Midō, Mai Nakahara as Rio Hiiragi, and Ami Koshimizu as Erenoa Sonoda.

Kurosawa will also sing the theme song "Kizuna no Chikara" (Strength of Bonds).

An earlier anime series based on the "Aira Project" for the Island in Akihabara, Tokyo pachinko and slot machine parlor may hold the title for shortest anime series. The anime premiered on Tokyo MX last December with 15-second episodes.
