This summer's Fantasista Doll anime is one the interesting projects, a bit lost in the shuffle given how many other interesting anime are coming up, and given how relatively quiet its promotion has been. Now, a new NicoLive event has announced the series cast.
The bishoujo sci-fi anime series is developed by Code Geass director Goro Taniguchi. Heaven's Lost Property and Haganai's Hisashi Saito is on board to direct the series, with character design by Guilty Crown's Yumi Kato providing character design based on Anmi originals.
A thumbnail description of the series promises a brave story of bonds of friendship, doll girls and power cards.
