The official website for the television anime of GCREST's 100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams: The Animation (Yume Ōkoku to Nemureru 100-Nin no Ōji-sama) smartphone puzzle role-playing game updated staff and story information on Friday.
Yukina Hiiro (Hitorijime My Hero, Chu-Bra!!) is directing the anime at project No.9. Natsuko Takahashi (My Love Story!!, Brothers Conflict) is handing series composition, Majiro (Barakamon, Kabukibu!) is the main character designer, and Masafumi Takada (Danganronpa The Animation) is composing the music.
The anime takes place in the dream world, where dreams give people the power to live, but the world is threatened by dream-eating beings known as "Yumekui." In order to save the world, princes from all kingdoms must join their power. The story follows the butler Navi and Prince Avi of the knight kingdom Arstoria as they travel the world in order to save it.
The series will premiere first on the AT-X channel on July 5 at 10:30 p.m., and it will also run on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and BS 11. It will have an advance screening with Suzumura, Yamashita, and other guests in Tokyo on June 23.
The cast includes:
Satoshi Hino as Gary
Shinnosuke Tachibana as Gilbert
Masakazu Morita as Rosso
Takahiro Sakurai as Orion
The game, which launched on Android and iOS devices in 2015, has the theme of romance with a prince "whom every woman dreams of." The game lets players experience love with over 100 princes who live in the Kingdom of Dreams. Players solve puzzles to wake up the princes from their deep slumber.
The game already inspired a series of web anime shorts last year. Shin Katagai (Neo Angelique Abyss) directed the web anime version at Satelight.
