The anime adaptation of the manga Blood Blockade Battlefront has done a lot casting in the last few weeks with reveals ahead of its premiere in the spring 2015 season in April. While we’ve had a teaser before that focused more on the manga and the announcement, we’ve now got our first full anime promo for the series.

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 without formal roles yet are Unshou Ishizuka, Akio Ohtsuka, Rie Kugimiya, Rikiya Koyama, Daisuke Sakaguchi, Kazuya Nakai, Keiji Fujiwara, Hikaru Midorikawa and Mamoru Miyano. Recent casting with roles listed included Rikiya Koyama as Klaus Von Reinhertz, Daisuke Sakaguchi as Leonard Watch, Kazuya Nakai as Zap Renfro and Yūma Uchida as Sonic.

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.
