An event for the Million Arthur game franchise announced on Wednesday that a television anime adaptation of Square Enix's Operation Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur (Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur) massively multi-player online role-playing game has been green-lit. The anime is planned for a half year (two cours), starting this year.
The anime's cast features the following cast members from the game:
Tetsuya Kakihara as Tekken Arthur
Ayana Taketatsu as Yamaneko Arthur
Inori Minase as Renkin Arthur
Natsuki Hanae as Kakka Arthur
Yūichi Nakamura as Rurō Arthur
Mitsutoshi Satō is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Tsuyoshi Tamai (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Strike Witches) is in charge of the series scripts. Genco is producing.
The game has not yet been scheduled for launch in Japan, but it will start in China on iOS and Android devices this month.
Square Enix released its first mobile card game based on the folklore of King Arthur in Japan in 2012 as Kaku San Sei Million Arthur. South Korean publisher Gamevil brought the game to North America and Europe in 2015, after Square Enix closed the game's Japanese servers in March 2015.
The game inspired a live-action TV show in 2014, and it has also inspired the Jaku-San-Sei Million Arthur four-panel manga. An anime adaptation of the manga started streaming in fall of 2015. Square Enix also released a sequel game, titled Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur, in Japan in November of 2014.
