posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Animax Asia announced on Wednesday that it will air the television anime adaptation of Bushiroad's Luck & Logic card game. The anime will premiere on March 22 at 8:00 p.m. GMT +8, and will air every Wednesday and Thursday with double episodes in the same time slot.
Animax Asia describes the anime:
In the year L.C. 922, mankind is faced with an unprecedented crisis.
Following the end of a hundred-year war on the mythical world of Tetra-Heaven, the defeated demon gods sought a safe haven and invaded the human world Septpia. The government is forced to fight by employing the Logicalists from Another Logic Counter Agency (ALCA), a special police force that protects the streets from foreigners. The Logicalists have a special power that allows them to enter a trance with Goddesses from the other world.
Yoshichika Tsurugi, a civilian who lacks “Logic”, meets the beautiful goddess, Athena, while helping people to escape from a demon god's attack. She wields the “Logic” that Yoshichika should have lost. This leads Yoshichika to an unexpected destiny with Athena.
The future of the world has been entrusted to the young Logicalists whose natures comprise “luck” and “logic”.
The anime premiered in Japan in January 2016.
