Back in June it was announced that animation studio TRIGGER (Kill la Kill,Little Witch Academia) would be joining hands with A-1 Pictures (Idolmaster) to create the original anime Darling in the Frankxx. During the 10th anniversary broadcast of Gurren Lagann (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann), they broadcast a new teaser video for Darling in the Frankxx which showed some of the character illustrations. Sketches of the characters were shown in-between words and strange codes flowed across the screen in two colors.
The text ‘The children without a name’ appeared on-screen. The sketches for the male protagonist were accompanied by the following quotes:
‘What am I doing?’
‘There is no place for me in this world.’
‘Nothing will change, even if I die.’ followed by Codename 016
Then the female protagonist and her sketches followed with the following text:
‘I hate my own taste.’
‘I am always alone.’
‘I am not scared of dying.’
The video ends, with the phrase ‘Let me ride you’ in blue text, which gets half overwritten by red letters saying, ‘Are you prepared to die?’. It is said that these phrases are hints to the story, so what do you think?
The logo of the series was also revealed through this video:
