The second promo video for the October anime Zetsuen no Tempest has been streamed. It shows a lot f the first scenes in the anime (supposing this since I have read the manga, of course) and the main characters. The video is only available through the official website of the show. Cast members, air date, theme songs and more have been revealed.
The show revolves around an upcoming apocalypse and the possible way to stop it that a young student has found. His name is Mahiro Fuwa and he stumbled upon the truth behind what is going on in his world while trying to find the man behind his sister’s ‘suicide’. Having discovered a message in a bottle which brought him together with what is known as the most powerful witch, he is going to not only avenge his sister, but also save the world. He is aided by his best friend Yoshino Takigawa and the powerful memory of his sister.
Here are all the new stuff shared in the video:
Kouki Uchiyama as Yoshino Takigawa
Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Mahiro Fuwa
Miyuki Sawashiro as Hakaze Kusaribe
Rikiya Koyama as Samon Kusaribe
Nana Mizuki as Evangeline Yamamoto
Hirofumi Nojima as Junichirou Hoshimura
Junichi Suwabe as Natsumura Kusaribe
Hiroyuki Yoshino as Tetsuma Kusaribe
Ending Theme song is “Happy Endings” by Hana Kawazawa while Opening Theme will be “Spirit Inspiration” by Nothing’s Carved in Stone.
BONES is in charge of animation while Sword of the Stranger’s Masahiro Ando is directing. AnoHana and Kuroshitsuji’s Mari Okada is the head writer.
Although this show should be based on romance (in one way or another) a lot of action is to be expected if we judge by the manga by Kyou Shirodaira, Arihide Sano and Ren Saizaki.
October 4, 2012 is the air date of the pilot episode of Zetsuen no Tempest.
