Symphogear AXZ Anime Reveals New Cast, Visuals, July 1 Premiere

posted on by Karen Ressler

The official website for Senki Zesshō Symphogear AXZ (pronounced "axis"), the upcoming fourth Senki Zesshō Symphogear anime series, updated on Tuesday with three additional cast members, a new key visual, and the premiere date.

The show will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS11 on July 1 at 25:00 (effectively July 2 at 1:00 a.m.), and it will also air on MBS and TV Aichi later the same night. A preview screening of the first episode will take place at Tokyo Cinemas Shinjuku on June 26.

The new cast is as follows:

Minako Kotobuki as Saint-Germain, a beautiful female alchemist who dresses as a man and aims for perfection.

Shōta Aoi as Cagliostro, an alchemist who used to be male until he met Saint Germain and attained a "perfect," eternally youthful female body. Cagliostro used to be a lying swindler but is now honest about everything.

Rina Hidaka as Prelati, another alchemist who used to be male before meeting Saint-Germain and attaining a perfect female body. Prelati used to be a showy pleasure-seeker, but now works diligently as a researcher.

Returning cast members include:

Katsumi Ono, director of the second and third Symphogear anime, is returning to direct the fourth series, again at Satelight. Elements Garden is again handling the music. Akifumi Kaneko and Noriyasu Agematsu are credited as the original creators. Nana Mizuki will perform the opening theme song.

The franchise premiered with a 13-episode television series in January 2012. The third Symphogear television anime, Senki Zesshō Symphogear GX, aired from July to September of 2015.

The franchise inspired a Rhythm Battle Senki Zesshō Symphogear Scherzando game as a free-to-play app for iOS devices in 2013, although service on the game has ended. A new iOS and Android app will launch this year.

In addition to the upcoming fourth season, a fifth season has also been green-lit.
