Fantasy series about boy avenging his parents' death premieres Monday

Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will stream Cerberus (Seisen Cerberus: Ryūkoku no Fatalite), the television anime adaptation of GREE's Seisen Cerberus mobile game. The stream will premiere on Monday, April 4 at 2:15 EDT worldwide outside of Asia.

The anime will premiere in Japan on TV Tokyo and other channels on April 4.

The anime is set on a continent ruled by sword and magic called Kunaaan, where a power balance between the Holy Kingdom of Amoria, the Kingdom of Ishilfen, and the Vanrodis Kingdom keeps a peace so unstable that any tragedy that befalls any one kingdom will mean war for the entire continent. Another power, the evil dragon Daganzord, also resides on the continent, and no one is powerful enough to stop him from spreading destruction and charred land in his wake. Two individuals, Bairo and Kismitete, undertook a ritual alongside a party of wizards to seal Daganzord, but were foiled. This event was known thereafter as the Balbagoa Tragedy. Bairo and Kismitete's son Heero is saved by Guillou, and Heero swears to avenge his parents' deaths and trains himself with the sword. When Heero turns 16, he sets out on a journey to slay the dragon, and Guillou accompanies him, having no choice. Along the way, they meet many types of people, and gain companions on their journey.

Nobuhiro Kondo (Keroro Gunsō, Jewelpet: Magical Change) is directing the series at the studio Bridge (Fairy Tail, Nobunagun). Hiroshi Ohnogi (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Macross) is in charge of the series' scripts. Gō Tōgetsu is designing the characters for animation. Noboru Haraguchi (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Tokyo Ghoul) is directing the sound at Tohokushinsha Film.

Maaya Uchida is performing the opening theme song "Resonant Heart," and Suzuko Mimori is performing the ending theme song "Xenotopia."

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka will voice the main character Heero, while M.A.O will voice the heroine Salahto. The additional cast includes:

  • Maaya Uchida as Erin
  • Taiten Kusunoki as Guillou
  • Arisa Ogasawara as Tommitte
  • Youji Ueda as Palpa
  • Shunsuke Sakuya as Nambuco
