The summer 2020 anime series Deca-Dence is getting some new international attention as German distributor AniMoon Publishing will be bringing the show out there. The first set of four episodes is scheduled for an October 8th, 2021 release where the first volume comes with a slipcase, booklet, and some interesting extras including an exclusive puzzle. The second set is scheduled for a November 5th, 2021 release while the third and final is set for a January 28th, 2021 release.
With that in mind, the distributor has now rolled out their latest promotional video for the release that features Angelina Markiefka As Kurenai, giving us a taste of how this dub adaptation is going to go.
This one gets some attention as it comes from the director behind Mob Psycho 100, Yuzuru Tachikawa, as he works with animation studio NUT. It was previously revealed that Hiroshi Seko is working on the scripts after adapting Mob Psycho 100 while pomdrosa is handling the character design concept that Shinichi Kurita will adapt.
The Japanese cast includes Tomori Kusunoki as Natsume, Katsuyuki Konishi as Kaburagi, Eiji Takeuchi as Fennel, Mei Shibata as Fei, Yoshino Aoyama as Linmei, Eri Kitamura as Kurenai, and Kohsuke Toriumi as Minato.
The opening theme song “Theater of Life” is performed by Konomi Suzuki while Kashitarō Itō is performing the ending theme song “Kioku no Hakobune.”
Plot Concept: Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000 meter-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat.
Denizens of Deca-dence fall into two categories: Gears, warriors who fight the Gadoll daily, and Tankers, those without the skills to fight. One day, Natsume, a Tanker girl who dreams of becoming a Gear meets surly Kaburagi, an armor repairman of Deca-dence.
This chance meeting between the seemingly two opposites, the girl with a positive attitude who never gives up on her dreams and the realist who has given up on his, will eventually shake the future course of this world.
