The "Scared Rider Xechs New Day 2016 Spring Sub-Mission" event announced a television anime adaptation of Rejet and Red Entertainment's Scared Rider Xechs romance adventure game for female players on Sunday. The anime will debut this summer.
In the otome game, a world of godless people was being menaced by Nightfly O'Note, a mysterious alien invader from a crimson world via the crimson barrier Scared. To counter the Nightfly O'Note's threat, the humans establish the LAG defense agency at the Ryūkyū Islands. The anti-Nightfly O'Note fighting unit Scared Rider valiantly stood against the threat, but was completely wiped out five times.
And so, the sixth and latest unit, Scared Rider Xechs, was assembled from five young men. However, at nearly the same time that SRX was formed, the Nightfly O'Note invasion stopped suddenly.
Without the enemy they were supposed to fight, the SRX members spend their restless days dealing with ordinary life. The SRX members establish the musical band Odd-l's to deal with their low spirits and restlessness. Meanwhile, a young woman is assigned to LAG as their instructor and commander. A new life begins for the young woman and the SRX. The tagline of the game, "That order, is it for love, or for death?"
Hideto Komori is directing the anime at Satelight. StoryRiders' Naruki Nagakawa is supervising the series scripts, and Koji Haneda is adapting the game's original character designs by pako.
The game's voice cast includes:
Eiji Takemoto as Fernandes
Mamoru Miyano as Takuto Kirisawa
Daisuke Namikawa as Les Paul
Takashi Kondo as Yūji Tsuga
Rikiya Koyama as Diviser
Hiro Shimono as Hiro Kurama
Naozumi Takahashi as Duesenberg
Hiroki Takahashi as Kazuki Suzuki
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Rickenbacker
Kenn as Hijiri Mutsuki
Yuuki Fujiwara as Epiphone
The original game shipped for the PlayStation 2 in July 2010, followed by a Scared Rider Xechs: Stardust Lovers fan disc in 2011. The two releases shipped in a bundle for PSP in 2012. The original game received a PS Vita port last November.
Update: Typos fixed. Thanks, KutovoiAnton and Fenrin
