It’s already a bit late, but I was absolutely really shocked and thrilled to discover that this Type-Moon fan-service overload of a show exists! For those who haven’t heard of Carnival Phantasm yet, it’s an upcoming anime OVA series that features crossovers from Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night, Melty Blood and Fate/Hollow Atraxia.
Seeing our supposed to be uber-serious and gloomy characters enjoying themselves with slice-of-life instances in this very comic and uplifting show, is really quite the sight!
Here’s the scoop from the press release:
Type-Moon‘s official website for its Carnival Phantasm anime project began streaming an opening promotional video and a character introduction promotional video off YouTube on Friday.
The anime adapts an anthology of Type-Moon manga short stories by Kannagi creator Eri Takenashi to celebrate Type-Moon‘s 10th anniversary. Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, My Bride is a Mermaid) is directing this anime at Lerche with scripts by Makoto Uezu (Is This A Zombie?, My Bride is a Mermaid, Tayutama -Kiss on my Deity-).
The Blu-ray Disc of the “1st Season” will ship in Japan on August 14, although people can buy it early at the Comic Market 80 event at the Tokyo Big Sight event center starting on August 12.
And here are the two promotional videos!
I was about to go to bed but I stumbled over this anime’s Facebook page and now I can’t sleep! It’s 5AM and I need to get up by 9AM. Ugh, wish me luck. Anyway, I’m REALLY looking forward to this one. It kind of reminds me of Full Metal Panic! doing their Fumoffu series – but not quite. What excites and intrigues me most is that surprise factor on how the characters from the different shows will interact. Even the bad guys are there to join in the fun. LOL.
The only thing I’m the least bit unhappy about this is that Ryougi Shiki and the rest of the cast from Kara No Kyoukai won’t be joining this crossover revolution – Canaan too. Oh well, I guess Type-Moon has its reasons.
Let’s settle with this for now. I’ll keep you guys posted once more news have been shed to anime fandom light!
