Upcoming anime Dies Irae has revealed its latest trailer and key visual. The trailer prepares the viewers for the dreadful story that will unfold before them. It also features the OP theme, Yui Sakakibara’s song ‘Kadenz’, in the background. It is a dark work and the equally dark tones of the song fits right in.
Dies Irae is based on a popular PC virtual novel. The game is still praised for its complex world-building and unique characters. In 2015, they have successfully funded a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter for the anime project which gained 96.56 million yen, making it the highest-earning crowdfunding project in Japan.
The anime will start airing on 6 October 2017.
In the newest trailer we meet the hero, Ren Fujii, who is seeing the approach of evil and lets the viewers guess the horrendous things that will follow. The visual, on the other hand, shows Ren in the center, standing in some place that looks like a park, while the scenery around him is twisted. He has a look on his face as if he is getting ready for battle.
A Blu-ray box set has been announced for 22 December 2017. You can take a look at the advertisement for the box below.
