DARLING in the FRANXX Anime Ad Reveals 2nd Round of Characters

posted on by Karen Ressler
Video introduces two more characters with their robot

The official Twitter account for Studio Trigger and A-1 Pictures' original science-fiction television anime DARLING in the FRANXX posted a fourth video ad, introducing a second pair of characters and their Franxx (the show's type of woman-shaped robot). The characters' names are Code:015 "Ichigo" and Code:056 "Goro," and their Franxx is Delphinium.

Like other videos, the new video shows text related to each character. Ichigo's phrases include "leader of the children," "level-headed big sister-type," "childhood friend," and "honor student pilot." Goro's phrases include "sets the mood," "long time best friend," "very skilled," and "nice young man."

Earlier videos introduced the two main characters Code:016 "Hiro" and Code:002 "Zero Two" with their Franxx named Strelizia.

The staff are revealing new sets of characters every week. The end of the video shows silhouettes for the next pair of characters and their Franxx.

Atsushi Nishigori (The IDOLM@STER, character designer for Gurren Lagann) is directing the series, and Toshifumi Akai (chief animation director for Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Sound of the Sky) is assistant director. Nishigori and Naotaka Hayashi (director for Girl Friend BETA, Morita-san wa Mukuchi) are in charge of series composition. Masayoshi Tanaka (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Highschool of the Dead) is designing the characters and is chief animation director. Shigeto Koyama (Michiko & Hatchin, Ancien and the Magic Tablet) is providing the mechanical designs. Hiroyuki Imaishi (director of Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill) is supervising the action.

Studio Trigger announced the anime at its Anime Expo panel last month. A-1 Pictures' Hiroyuki Shimizu is involved with the project and appeared on stage during the panel.
