Fall 2017 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
The MANGA.TOKYO staff had its share of summer. Now, all we wish is for the hot and humid weather to go away and give its place to the red and cool autumn.
Darling in the Franxx has revealed a new character commercial for its main characters on 13 September, during the commercial break of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. For the next five weeks, they will use the commercial break to introduce new information, this video being the first in the series.
We are introduced to the boy code: 016, Hiro, and the girl code: 002, Zero Two. It has also been revealed that the Frankxx connecting those two characters is a mecha called Strelizia.
On top of Hiro’s silhouette are quotes saying ‘A bird that cannot fly’, ‘called a child prodigy in the past’, and ‘dropout pilot’. The text in front of his artwork says ‘It’s my speciality. Giving a name’, ‘This is not where I am meant to be’ and ‘This is not a place a bird who cannot fly goes’. In front of Two Zero’s silhouette it says, ‘red horn’, ‘partner killer’, and ‘elite pilot’. The text in front of her artwork reads, ‘You create where you are meant to be’, ‘I might be interested in you’ and ‘Is it necessary to have a name?’
At the end of the short clip, they reveal the silhouette of the characters they will introduce on 20 September 2017. We can’t wait to learn more about the series!
