The previously-announced anime series from Bandai Namco’s SYNDUALITY mix-media project revealed the first teaser trailer. The TV anime will be animated by studio 8Bit. The main cast was revealed and includes:
- Noir: Aoi Koga
- Ciel: Nagisa Aoyama
- Schnee: M・A・O
The official website describes the plot of Synduality anime as:
The “Tears of the New Moon” was a great disaster that brought down a poisonous rain that could kill people if they were exposed to it. More than 100 years have passed since then, and mankind has finally begun to overcome the disaster.
In the “Nest” settlements scattered throughout the devastated world, those who survive are humanoid Magus, equipped with dual-thinking AI.
The year is 2242 A.D. Magus who had fallen asleep wakes up with no memories.
Neco is in charge of character designs, while Ippei Gyoubu designed the Cradle Coffins. In addition to the anime, a game is coming soon – further details will be revealed on September 22. Designs for the three named characters are available:
It seems that the game is set before the anime events, as PlayStation describes the plot of the game as:
The year is 2222. It has been years since Tears of the New Moon, a mysterious rain, poured and wiped out almost the entire human race. The poisonous rain gave birth to deformed creatures devouring for humans, and humanity fled from the danger. As means for survival, the humans then build an underground haven; Amasia. In this new built dystopian city, on a pursuit of maintaining their existence, they run into an Artificial Intelligence named Magus. Not knowing how things will work between them, the story of how Humans and AI coinciding and trying to find their truths begin.
