Level-5's Megaton Musashi Project Previewed in Animated Video
posted on by Karen Ressler
The project includes a television anime, game, collaboration with Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump, toys by Bandai, and an internet anime spinoff titled "After School." Level-5 announced the project in 2016, initially with a planned start time of summer 2017.
The story takes place after 90 percent of humanity wiped out due to an invasion. Survivors live in a shelter where their lives are monitored, and memories of the invasion erased. Three teenagers from the shelter are chosen to pilot three machines that combine to form the Musashi robot, made out of a material named Megatronium alloy. The series will balance robot action with school life.
Each different medium—game, anime, or other—will tell the story from the point of view of a different set of characters.
The cast thus far includes:
Masakazu Morita as Yamato Ichidaiji
Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Ryōgo Hijikata
Miyu Irino as Teru Asami
The game will be an RPG with multiplayer features.
