The anime adaptation of the manga Blood Blockade Battlefront has done some decent reveals reecntly with the cast, staff and the first key visual that you can see to the right. Now TOHO is out with the first promotional video for the series, though it’s a teaser without a look at the full on animation. what we get is pretty tantalizing though with the background design and the general impression it gives ahead of its debut sometime in 2015.
The show comes from the manga of the same name by Yasuhiro Nightow, who made a name for himself early in the previous decade with his Trigun work. The manga began in 2009 and has nine volumes released so far, with six of them out in North America through Dark Horse Comics. The anime adaptation is going to be produced by Bones with Rie Matsumoto directing based on scripts by Kazunao Furuya and character designs by Toshihiro Kawamoto. The cast for the series has also been announced with Akira Ishida, Unshou Ishizuka, Akio Ohtsuka, Shinji Ogawa, Ai Orikasa, Rie Kugimiya, Yu Kobayashi, Rikiya Koyama, Daisuke Sakaguchi, Kazuya Nakai, Keiji Fujiwara, Hikaru Midorikawa, Mamoru Miyano, and Mitsuru Miyamoto.
Plot concept: A breach between Earth and the netherworlds has opened up over the city of New York, trapping New Yorkers and creatures from other dimensions in an impenetrable bubble. They’ve lived together for years, in a world of crazy crime sci-fi sensibilities. Now someone is threatening to sever the bubble, and a group of stylish superhumans is working to keep it from happening.
