The Girl in Twilight Anime's TV Ad Streamed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Pony Canyon USA describes the show's story:
A group of girls living in a small city gather to enact a ritual.
They are the “Crystal Radio Research Society”.
The sweet and cheery Asuka Tsuchimiya brought this group together with her friends from school.
The ritual was merely an urban legend, but events coalesce and what started as play becomes much more...
The anime stars:
Lynn as Yū Tōnaka, a second-year Crystal Radio Club member. Her self-restraint often leads her to be the girl of reason among the five girls. She has been friends with Asuka since childhood, and has been cleaning up the messes she makes whenever she gets into something. Her family runs a hospital.
Nao Tōyama as Mia Silverstone, a first-year Crystal Radio Club member. She was born and raised in Japan. She has an elegant and reserved personality. She admires a "hero" whose existence she considers far from herself.
Ami Koshimizu as NANA Nanase, a second-year Crystal Radio Club member. She carries herself like a fashionable gyaru. She is very easy to get along with, owing to her finely attuned social sense that allows her to belong to any group around her.
Marina Inoue as Chloé Morisu, a second-year Crystal Radio Club member. While of Japanese descent, she grew up in France, and only later returned to Japan. She is fiercely independent, enough to judge interaction with people as not worth her time. Her curt attitude and persona has led her to be able to do most things by herself. She easily gets absorbed into things she likes.
A tie-in game will also launch in October for iOS and Android devices. The game shares the anime's original scenario writer, original character designers, concept artist, main theme song writer, and music producer.
Kōtarō Uchikoshi (Ever17, Punch Line, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward) is credited for the project's original scenario concept. Jin Tamamura (A Sister's All You Need) is directing the anime at Dandelion Animation Studio and Jūmonji. Yūichi Abe (Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial, live-action Prince of Tennis) is credited as series director.
Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl Ai, DNA², Tiger & Bunny) is drawing the original character designs alongside Hiroyuki Asada (Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee, Cheer Boys!!), who is also credited as concept artist, while Hiroki Harada (Romeo × Juliet, [email protected], Sweetness & Lightning) is designing the characters for animation.
Ryu☆ (pronounced "Ryūsei," aka Bemani game series composer Ryūtarō Nakahara) is the music producer, and Kenji Itō (Romancing SaGa, Puzzle & Dragons games) is writing the main theme song. Michi is singing the opening theme song "Soranetarium," and Ami Wajima is singing the ending theme song "Kowarekake no Radio" (Broken Radio).
