Satelight animates summer series based on otome game

The official website of the television anime adaptation of Rejet and Red Entertainment's Scared Rider Xechs romance adventure game began streaming a promotional video for the anime on Thursday. The video reviews the franchise's history and previews the upcoming show's animation for the first time.

In the beginning of the video, Christoph says, "I've been waiting so long for this time to come. Thanks to you, I was able to become myself. I didn't save you; you saved me."

The anime will debut this summer.

In the original 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 and writing the series scripts. Additionally, Jun Kumagai (Persona 3 The Movie series, Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū, Psycho-Pass 2) and Naohiro Fukushima (Eden of the East, Eureka Seven AO) are also writing the scripts. Koji Haneda is adapting the game's original character designs by pako.

The game's voice cast includes:

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Christoph Yōsuke Komae

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.
