posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Chain Chronicle: Haecceitas no Hikari (Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas), the theatrical and television anime adaptation of Sega's Chain Chronicle smartphone game, began streaming a trailer on Thursday for the anime's first theatrical "chapter." The trailer reveals and previews the anime's theme song "Chain the world" by Nao Tōyama. The video contains the same footage from an earlier trailer in October.
"Chain the world" serves as the opening theme song for the theatrical version of the three films. Tōyama's "True Destiny" song will serve as the ending theme song for the anime's television broadcast. Tōyama's single for both songs marks her solo debut as a singer. The single will ship on February 1. Tōyama is also voicing the role of the "legendary songstress" Mujika in the anime.
Sega is also streaming a commercial for the Chain Chronicle 3 smartphone game.
The anime will have three "chapters," which screen in a two-week limited engagement for each chapter. The first debuts on December 3, the second on January 14, and the third on February 11. The television anime series will then air later.
