Cop Craft Anime Reveals New Key Visual, 1 More Character Visual

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Series premieres on July 8

The official website for Cop Craft, the television anime of Shoji Gatoh's Cop Craft Dragnet Mirage Reloaded light novel series, revealed a new key visual on Friday.

The site also revealed a character visual for the character Zelada, played by Houchu Ohtsuka.

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS11 on July 8 at 24:00 (effectively July 9 at 12:00 a.m.), before premiering on WOWOW on July 10.

The anime will star:

Shin Itagaki (2016 Berserk, Teekyū) is directing the anime at Millepensee, and Gatoh himself is in charge of the series scripts. Hiromi Kimura is adapting Range Murata's original character designs for animation. Masayoshi Ōishi will perform the opening theme song "Rakuen Toshi," and Mayu Yoshioka as her character Tilarna Exedilika will perform the ending theme song "Connected."

The story is set in San Teresa City on the fictional Pacific island of Kariaena. The "buddy police action" series follows the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana.

15 years ago, an unknown hyperspace gate opened over the Pacific. Beyond this gate lies Reto Semaani, a strange alternate world where fairies and demons live.

San Teresa City — a city where over two million immigrants live from both worlds. As a result, there are the haves and the have-nots. Here is the world's newest "city of dreams." But in the shadow of the chaos, crime is rampant: drugs, prostitution, and weapon trafficking. The detectives who stand up to these heinous crimes are in the San Teresa City Police. When the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana — two individuals who differ in gender, personality, and even world of origin — meet, an incident erupts. Two worlds. Two justices. From this, the curtain rises on a buddy police action story.

Range Murata (Last Exile, Blue Submarine No. 6) illustrates the light novel series, which Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint started publishing in November 2009.
