The website for the anime based on Crimson and Anastasia Shestakova's fantasy manga Aoi Sekai no Chūshin de opened on Friday and confirmed the voice cast: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Blue Exorcist's Rin), Hiro Shimono, Suzuko Mimori, Izumi Kitta, and Takehito Koyasu.
The story re-imagines the real-life console wars as a fantasy tale — the Segua Kingdom is locked in an age-old war with the Ninterudo Empire for dominance of the land of Consume. Segua now finds itself on the defensive, but an unlikely hero has risen in the form of Gear, a boy who brags about his breakneck speed. Gear helps turn the tide of the war.
Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Destiny of the Shrine Maiden, High School DxD) is directing, and Maki Fujii (07-Ghost, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden) is designing the characters. Kouji Tsujitani (Freezing) is in charge of sound direction.
