We couldn’t wait to share the news with you that DECA-DENCE, the latest original anime from director Yuzuru Tachikawa, is coming to Funimation this summer. And now we’ve got even MORE details from the show’s production committee to share about the upcoming series!
“A brand new original TV animation project from the up-and-coming and talented animation studio NUT that brought the mega hit The Saga of Tanya the Evil series to both the TV screen and the silver screen is now finally on the move!
Bringing together an all-star staff of creators and artists, this gut-wrenching Sci-Fi action epic depicted on an astounding scale will reunite the golden duo of world-renowned director Yuzuru Tachikawa (10 billion-yen international blockbuster Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer, his self-penned Death Parade etc.) and scriptwriter Hiroshi Seko (Banana Fish, Vinland Saga etc.) who worked together on the popular TV animation adaptation of Mob Psycho 100.”
And an official synopsis for the series:
“Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000 meter-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat.
Denizens of Deca-dence fall into two categories: Gears, warriors who fight the Gadoll daily, and Tankers, those without the skills to fight. One day, Natsume, a Tanker girl who dreams of becoming a Gear meets surly Kaburagi, an armor repairman of Deca-dence.
This chance meeting between the seemingly two opposites, the girl with a positive attitude who never gives up on her dreams and the realist who has given up on his, will eventually shake the future course of this world.”
We also revealed the first PV for the series earlier this week, which showcases the incredible work Tachikawa and co. are putting into this project. The series looks to push sci-fi anime action to new heights on a HUGE scale, and we can’t wait to share it with you all.
