posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Rejet and Elements Garden's Dance with Devils: Fortuna anime film began streaming a video of the film's first six minutes on Saturday. The video begins with a new musical number for the film titled "Sweet Grimoire."
The film will premiere in Japan on November 4. The film will have six different epilogues that will screen at different times. Each epilogue will focus on one of the six lead male characters: Rem, Lindo, Urie, Mage, Shiki, and Loewen. The film will have "participation-style" "Akuma to Utau Jōei-kai" (Sing With Devils Screening Event) screening events in addition to regular screenings. At the fan participation screenings, people will be able to sing, call and respond to each other, use pen lights, and cosplay.
The new film will feature the same staff as the television anime series. Rejet's Daisuke Iwasaki is in charge of the original plan, and Ai Yoshimura is directing the film at Brains Base. Tomoko Konparu is writing the script, and Yuka Takashina is adapting Hirotaka Maeda's original character designs for animation. Elements Garden is composing the music, and Elements Garden's Junpei Fujita and DIVE II Entertainment are producing the music.
The film will also star the same cast as the television anime, plus Toshiyuki Toyonaga as new character Marius (pictured below). The website describes Marius as a "masked storyteller" who watches Ritsuka and the others from afar. In addition, Rikiya Koyama will replace Keiji Fujiwara as Lord Nesta.
The story centers on second-year high school student Ritsuka Tachibana. She lives a calm and unchanging life. Ritsuka's older brother Lindo returns from studying abroad in the United Kingdom. Shikō Academy student council president Rem Kaginuki calls on the girl, and she begins having mysterious encounters with the student council members. Her life changed a little from that day, but Ritsuka expected nothing more.
However, she comes home to find her mother collapsed with suspicious hooded men nearby. They were not human but devils, vampires, and exorcists seeking the Forbidden Grimoire. Ritsuka's former daily life crumbles around her, and she finds herself slowly becoming attracted to Rem, who helps her in her predicament. On the other hand, confusion deepens with regard to her brother who carries a secret. Ritsuka is unsure what path to choose as she finds herself at the center of a love story.
Game developer Rejet, music production studio Elements Garden, and music production company Avex are collaborating on the Dance with Devils franchise. A 12-episode television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2015. FUNimation Entertainment streamed the series with subtitles as it aired in Japan, and also streamed a Broadcast dub.
Rejet's PlayStation Vita game shipped in Japan in March 2016.
