We have a new visual and the broadcast date for upcoming October 2017 anime Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru! We also have a double visual released, showing the same scene from two perspectives, and the opening and ending theme artists.
The series will be based on the novels Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru: Dances with the Dragons, which have released 19 volumes so far under Shogakukan’s Gagaga Bunko. The fantasy story became very popular because of the banter between the two main characters, the great descriptions of battles with the ‘Jushiki’ system, and the unreasonable harshness of the world.
With the announcement of the broadcasting schedule came the release of a double visual and a hand-written message by original author Labo Asai and original illustrator Zain. The message from Asai says, ‘Watch well over the SareRyuu anime!! It’s something to celebrate!”’ Zain wrote, ‘Congratulations to the SareRyuu anime!”. The visual shows Gigina, voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki, and Gaius, voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya, from two different perspectives.
The voice actors also had a comment for the fans. Shimazaki said, ‘I am very honored to voice the main character of a series that has been loved for such a long time already. I hope I will be able to meet the expectations of the fans of the original novels and that those who watch the story for the first time through the anime will be able to enjoy it. I will give my best as Gaius!’ Hosoya said, ‘I will work properly. So if you want to take a look at the anime and support it, I would appreciate it. Please keep an eye on this work.’
Furthermore, the artists for the opening and ending theme have been announced. The opening will be provided by fripSide and the ending by Maon Kurosaki. Satoshi Yaginuma, who is leading fripSide as a sound creator, said about the opening, ‘This time we challenged a ballad for the opening, which will be the first in the history of fripSide! Please take a look at it together with the anime!’ Ending theme artist Kurosaki said, ‘I will work hard to make you feel like you are in the world of SareRyuu.’
On another note, they will distribute special paper fans with the image of the key visual on them at Comic Market 92, which will take place 11-13 August 2017. So if you happen to go to the event, stop by at the TBS, GagagaBunko and NBC Universal booth!
