You can check the additional cast in the full cast list below! The new visual is also more anime-like compared to the previous one, showing the two main characters (voiced by Kentaro Kumagai and Akari Kito) with a determined expression and ready to fight.
And last, a two-minute trailer was released with some amazing scenes from the anime. Beautiful fighting action, magic, blood, and beautiful girls were packed into this trailer, supported by a beautiful melody in the background. The atmosphere is set for an epic fantasy epos.
TV Anime Record of Grancrest War
To broadcast in January 2018
The continent is a place where chaos dominates everything.
People are fearing the chaos and the destruction it brings, but there are lords who can calm the chaos with a holy seal they have, and so they protect the people and live with them. However, the lords start to fight each other over the seals. They want to gather power instead of protecting the people. In the midst of that is the magician Silka, who hates the lords for forgetting their duty, and Theo, who left his town to search for a way to free it from its political pressure.
When they meet, Silka tricks Theo into a master-servant contract after hearing his ideas for this world. And so, they try to bring change to a continent buried in war.
Like this, a big fantasy epos begins.
