The official website for the television anime adaptation of FLIPFLOPs' Darwin's Game manga revealed on Sunday that Mashiro Ayano (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Re:CREATORS themes) will perform the show's ending theme song "Alive." Ayano's single for the song will ship on February 19.
The anime will premiere in January on Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, Yomiuri TV, TV Aichi, BS11, and AT-X. AbemaTV will stream the series as it airs, and other services will stream it later.
Yoshinobu Tokumoto (Comic Girls) is directing the series at Nexus. FLIPFLOPs member Shū Miyama is writing the scripts. Kazuya Nakanishi (animation director for Granbelm, Comic Girls) is designing the characters. Kenichiro Suehiro (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Golden Kamuy) is composing the music.
The anime stars:
- Yūsuke Kobayashi as Kaname
- Reina Ueda as Shuka
- Nichika Omori as Rain
- Taku Yashiro as Ryūji
- Yumiri Hanamori as Sui/Sōta
The manga centers on Kaname Sudō, a high school boy who is drawn to a mysterious game app titled "Darwin's Game." He becomes involved in a social game where the stakes are life or death.
FLIPFLOPs launched the manga in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shonen Champion magazine in December 2012. Shū Miyama provides the story for the manga, while Yuki Takahata provides the art.
