posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed 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 for streaming and home video. The series will be available streaming "soon" on digital outlets.
The series will premiere in Japan 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 BS11.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
Enter the mysterious Dream World, where a newly-crowned royal soon learns of an insatiable evil, the yumekui, feeding upon the energy and dreams of sleeping princes who are then unable to awaken. The brave monarch must save them and their world from the dream eater!
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 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.
