Netflix revealed back in March 2019 a new anime series with an adaptation of the Levius manga. The show saw a November 28th, 2019 debut where it received a worldwide release. At the time, the series was available on German, English, Spanish, and French dubs in addition to the original Japanese. It also comes with Japanese closed captions, English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese subtitles.
Now, the show is getting its broadcast run in Japan with it set for a January 9th, 2021 debut on Tokyo MX. And that means we now have a new promotional video to highlight that run and a new key visual to raise awareness for those that tuned out of the Netflix run or didn’t have the service.
The series has Hiroyuki Seshita as the chief director with Keisuke Ide directing at Polygon Pictures based on the series composition by Hiroshi Seko. Yuki Moriyama is on board as the character designer.
The Japanese cast includes Nobunaga Shimazaki as Levius Cromwell, Junichi Suwabe as Zachs Cromwell, Takahiro Sakurai as Bill Weinberg, Ayane Sakura as Natalia Garnet, Houchu Ohtsuka as Malcolm Eden, Daisuke Ono as Hugo Stratas, Saori Hayami, and Mamoru Miyano as Dr. Crown.
The series is based on the manga by Haruhisa Nakata which began in 2013 and went through a publication change along the way where it has eight volumes out between the two distributors; three as Levius and five as Levius/est. Viz Media holds the English language rights to the property.
