With a bit more information having come down recently with the cast and staff announcements, the upcoming Momo Kyun Sword series has now dropped its first now promo that shows off the characters and style of the series as well as a bit of the opening theme song. The series was announced as going into production back in January 2014. The adaptation of the light novel is one that has an interesting history in and of itself as the Kibidango Project kicked off in 2014 with it where they bring in different illustrators for it to give it a different feeling each month and a variety of web show readings of the source material has been done by a wide range of voice actors as well. With a summer 2014 premiere planned, the new details include the main cast for the series as well as the production team itself which looks pretty interesting and not the normal group you see in a lot of shows.
