Karneval's Eiji Suganuma directs series starring Yuuki Kaji, Misato Fukuen

Kadokawa announced at the AnimeJapan 2018 event on Sunday that it is producing a television anime adaptation of Square Enix's Lord of Vermilion arcade trading card game.

The anime will star Yuuki Kaji as Chihiro Kamina and Misato Fukuen as Yuri Shiraki.

Eiji Suganuma (Sasameki Koto, Karneval, B-PROJECT) is directing the anime. Masashi Suzuki (Shuffle!, Minami-ke: Okawari , The Sacred Blacksmith) is in charge of series composition. Toshie Kawamura (Yes! Precure 5, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Hugtto! Precure) is designing the characters.

Square Enix launched the Lord of Vermilion fantasy collectible card game in June 2008, and the game has since spawned the Lord of Vermilion II, Lord of Vermilion Re: 2, Lord of Vermilion III, and Lord of Vermilion IV sequels, as well as the Lord of Vermilion Arena Windows PC game. The franchise also spawned the Lord of Arcana spinoff for the PlayStation Portable in 2010, and a remake titled Lord of Apocalypse on the PlayStation Vita and PSP in 2012.

The Lord of Vermilion III game previously inspired a six-minute special anime video.

Update: The anime's official website revealed the full key visual on Sunday.
