DMM GAMES's New Project Namuamidabutsu! -Utena- Includes TV Anime for 2019

Akira Oguro (Generator Gawl character designer) makes his TV anime directorial debut

DMM GAMES held a presentation for its new project Namuamidabutsu! -Utena- at Tokoji Temple (Soutou school) in Saitama Prefecture on August 8 and announced that the project will also include a TV anime based on the game, which is scheduled to premiere in 2019. 



Namuamidabutsu! -Utena- is a battle RPG that is set to begin its service for browser, iOS and Android

this winter. DMM GAMES has already started accepting pre-registration for the game on the game's

official website.


The story tells the battles between Mara, the demon who once tried to disturb Buddha's enlightenment,

and a Buddhist organization "13 Buddha" headed by Buddha himself and supported by two Goho zenjin

(good deities protecting dharma), Taishakuten/Śakra and Bonten/Brahmā in the modern-day world. 


Akira Oguro, who is known as the character designer for the 1998 TV anime Generator Gawl and the

Final Fantasy game franchise, makes his TV anime directorial debut at Asashi Production (Omae wa

Mada Gunma o Shiranai). Erika Yoshida (Tiger&Bunny, Touken Ranbu - Hanamaru-) serves as series

composition writer. The game's main voice cast will also play their characters in the anime as well.
