Drifting Dragons TV Anime Video Reveals Yoh Kamiyama Opening Song (Updated)

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Series premieres on January 8

The official website for the television anime of Taku Kuwabara's Drifting Dragons (Kūtei Dragons) manga revealed a promotional video and the opening theme song on Wednesday. The video previews Yoh Kamiyama's opening theme song "Gunjō" (Ultramarine) and Akai Kōen's ending theme song "Zettai Reido" (Absolute Zero).

The series will premiere on Fuji TV's [+Ultra] programming block on January 8 at 24:55 (effectively January 9 at 12:55 a.m.). The anime will also air on Kansai TV, Tokai TV, TV Nishinippon, Hokkaido Bunka Hōsō, and BS Fuji. The show will stream exclusively on Netflix, and the entire series will begin streaming on January 9.

The anime's main cast includes:
(Note: character name romanizations are not confirmed.)

Sora Amamiya as Takita

Tomoaki Maeno as Mika

Sōma Saitō as Giraud

Kana Hanazawa as Vanabelle

The cast also includes:

Tadahiro Yoshihira is directing the anime at Polygon Pictures, and Makoto Uezu is both writing and overseeing the series scripts. Yoshikazu Iwanami is the sound director.

Kodansha Comics began releasing the series digitally in December 2017, and released the fifth volume digitally on December 3. The first volume shipped in print on December 17. The company describes the series:

The draking vessel Quin Zaza soars through the skies, hunting dragons that hide in the clouds. A single big catch means full coffers and all the meat they can eat, while failure means an empty wallet and an even emptier stomach. Join us as we log the crew's grand adventures, chasing dreams of the sky, dragons, and gourmet cooking!

Kuwabara launched the manga in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine in June 2016, and Kodansha published the manga's seventh compiled volume on November 7.

A serialized novel in the franchise debuted in the Da Vinci magazine on May 6. The novel focuses on Vanabelle and other original female characters. Kuwabara is drawing illustrations for the novel.

Update: This article previously incorrectly stated that all episodes except the first episode will be 10 minutes long. This is incorrect. All episodes will be a half hour in length.
