The Thousand Noble Musketeers Anime Gets Original Video Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
March 6 episode about surprise birthday party set after episode 6

The official Twitter account for the television anime of Marvelous' The Thousand Musketeers (Senjūshi: The Thousand Noble Musketeers) smartphone game announced on Wednesday that an original video anime will ship on March 6, 2019. "Kijūshi-tachi no Happy Birthday!" (Noble Musketeers' Happy Birthday!) will tell a "heartwarming, hilarious slice-of-life story" about the noble musketeers holding a surprise birthday party for Master on a certain day after the events of episode 6.

The main staff and cast will reunite for the 24-minute original video anime.

Sentai Filmworks describes the series:

The Thousand Musketeers TV series follows the struggle of a ragtag resistance effort battling against the World Empire, a tyrannical regime intent on oppressing lives and suppressing liberty. Although modern weapons are forbidden, the resistance fighters repurpose antique weapons that had been regarded as works of art, not deadly arms. But the balance of power changes as these relics of ancient wars respond to the plight of the resistance and come to life as noble musketeers who take up the weapons they were born from and fight to bring a sliver of hope back to the world!

The cast includes:

Kenichi Kasai (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Bakuman.) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment. Takashi Aoshima (Sanrio Boys, Himōto! Umaru-chan) is the series supervisor, Majiro (Barakamon, Macross Delta) is the character designer, and Hiroshi Takaki (Devils and Realist, AKB0048) is composing the music.

The show's opening theme song is "antique memory" by Taku Yashiro and Yoshiki Nakajima, and vistlip performs the show's ending theme song "BLACK MATRIX."

The Thousand Musketeers anime premiered in Japan on July 3. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series and HIDIVE is streaming the series as it airs.

The game launched on iOS and Android on March 22. The game is also inspiring an ongoing manga adaptation by Miki Daichi that launched in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine on June 4.
