Shōmetsu Toshi Smartphone Game Gets TV Anime at Madhouse (Updated)

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

Wright Flyer Studios opened a website on Sunday to announce that its Shōmetsu Toshi (Annihilated City) smartphone game is getting a television anime adaptation. Madhouse is producing the series, and Pony Canyon is producing the music. The tagline on the below visual reads "Memories continue to live."

The anime will star:

In the anime's story, one day a town is annihilated. Yuki is a young woman who is said to be the only person left alive from the town after the annihilation, and Takuya is a loner and a smuggler. Together, with the letter left by Yuki's father, they go toward the town, now called Lost, but unexpected obstacles stand in their path. The thoughts of those left behind, secret and mysterious organizations, and hidden conspiracies await Yuki and Takuya as they move closer toward the mystery behind Lost.

Wright Flyer Studios and GREE launched the game in Japan in May 2014, and the game has more than 9 million downloads worldwide. An update titled Shōmetsu Toshi 2 launched in November 2016.

Update: The same event that announced the anime adaptation also announced on Sunday that the game is getting a new app titled Shōmetsu Toshi Drama RPG MIX, as well as a completely new 3D work using Unreal Engine4.
