posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the anime of Labo Asai's Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryū to Odoru: Dances with the Dragons (literally, "Even So, Sinners Dance with Dragons: Dances with the Dragons") light novel series began streaming the show's third promotional video on Friday. The video previews fripSide's opening theme song "divine criminal."
The anime will premiere on TBS on April 5 late at night at 1:58 a.m. (effectively April 6), but the staff have changed the show's BS-TBS premiere date from April 7 to April 14. The anime will have 12 episodes.
The story revolves around "jushiki" (lit. spell equations), the equations that govern the quantum constant "h" of action, change the laws of physics at the local scale, give birth to TNT explosives and poison gas, and cause incredible physical phenomena such as plasma and nuclear fusion. Two "jushikishi" (spell equationists) who use jushiki in battle are Gayus (who deals with bad luck with tact) and the beautiful but cruel sword-wielder Gigina. These two bounty hunters are caught up in a battle with dragons in the city of Eridana and in the intrigue of great nations.
