posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Series based on smartphone game debuts in July

Marvelous began streaming an announcement commercial on Saturday for the television anime adaptation of its The Thousand Musketeers (Senjūshi: The Thousand Noble Musketeers) smartphone game, which the company announced earlier on Saturday.

The anime will air from July through September.

Marvelous describes the anime's story in English:

The story takes place at the subsequent era after the whole world was devastated by the nuclear war. Under the strong rule by the World Empire, people are all suppressed and deprived of their own lives. A resistance team secretly keeps fighting to break the suppression while everyone is forbidden to possess any force of arms.
The team challenges the fight with the "antique guns" that were left as works of art, and the incarnations of those antique guns are called "Musketeers" appear and join the team, as if they responded to the soul of the team.
In their battles with the incarnations of contemporary guns who represent and are dispatched from the Empire, the "Musketeers" turn their "Absolute Noble" mode to give a powerful boost to themselves, and bring hope to the world!

The show will star (cast are reprising their roles from the game):

  • Taku Yashiro as Brown Bess, an England musket gun that was used when Great Britain Empire was established
  • Shinnosuke Tachibana as Charleville, The first French musket gun, which was standardized to the military

  • Daisuke Namikawa as Napoleon, Emperor Napoleon's flint-lock type shotgun
