Viz Media picked up the rights to the Terraformarsproperty awhile back while also releasing the manga and now the anime is closer to release. While we’ve had a dub clip previously, this new one is a bit lighter on the actual dialogue and more on the sounds of people being torn apart in order to showcase what the uncensored side of the series looks like.

The first season was produced at LIDEN FILMS with Hiroshi Hamasaki directing based on scripts by Shogo Yasukawa. Character designs were done by Masanori Shino while Satoshi Kimura did the secondary character design work.
