Cast and Season 1 artists have been announced for music-centric project
Back in January, media mix project MAGATSUNOTE kicked off as a web manga, promising a big reveal 55 days after its beginning. The big reveal has come: the project is branching out into a website, music, and much more.
The project features a scenario by Corpse Party creator Makoto Kedōin, and character designs by Hakuoki and Hiiro no Kakera's Kazuki Yone. The story takes place in the year 2222, 200 years after a meteorite has hit Earth and destroyed 90% of human civilization. ARK, the agency devoted to protecting and revitalizing humanity, is abusing its powers to benefit a privileged few. In response, warlords — with the same "epitaphs" as great Sengoku-era warlords — rise up in protest, wielding demonic powers.
MAGATSUNOTE Season:1 will consist of radio dramas and newly composed songs, featuring 13 characters across five groups. Each group will also have its own musical group handling its respective songs:
