A second trailer was also released, which previews the anime’s opening theme, “Sense” by BAND-MAID (Log Horizon: Destruction of the Round Table), and includes English subtitles:
The ending theme, titled “Kōfuku-ron” (“Surrender Theory”) will be performed by Yuu Miyashita.
The exciting cast list continues with M.A.O (Fire Force), Natsuki Hanae (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba), Kaito Ishikawa (One-Punch Man), Toshiyuki Morikawa (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation), Tomoaki Maeno (Cells at Work!), Kikuko Inoue (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood), Hikaru Midorikawa (SK8 the Infinity) and Ai Kayano (Otherside Picnic).
Hideya Takahashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind) is set to direct the 24-episode complete adaptation at studio Signal.MD, with Shinichi Inotsume (PERSONA5 the Animation) on series composition and Koji Odate (No Game No Life) on character design.
