Sentai Licenses "CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon" Anime

Series available through select digital outlets, home video to follow

Sentai Filmworks announced its latest license earlier today, which will bring CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon to select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow later. 

 

Yoshiharu Ashino (Tweeny Witches) directs the fantasy adventure anime, with Tatsuto Higuchi (Phi Brain) on series composition and Junichi Akutsu (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) on mecha design for the SUNRISE production. 

 

Sentai's synopsis:

Mankind has acquired a highly advanced information technology known as “Mana.” Thanks to this almost magical force war, hunger, pollution, and every other problem on the face of the earth have been conquered. Finally the world is a utopia of peace and luxury.

 

Angelise is the First Princess of the Empire of Misurugi. She also lives a life of luxury, is celebrated by the citizens, and is expected to wear the crown. However, the truth becomes known that she herself is a “Norma.”

 

A “Norma” is someone who cannot use Mana. They are called “Irregulars” and are considered anti-social “things.”

 

With everything taken away from her, she is sent into isolation on a secluded island. There she meets Norma girls who know of nothing but fighting. They spend their days piloting transforming humanoid weapons called “Para-mails” to hunt giant aggressive life forms called “Dragons” which have invaded from another dimension.

 

Having lost her name, “Ange” becomes a warrior. But what will she see at the end of her battles?

 

What is to be trusted?

 

What is to be gained?

 

The story of one girl and her determination begins here.
