Anycolor announced a new media mix project titled Lie:verse Liars, in a three-way joint venture with Kadokawa and Balcolony. The project will include an anime, a light novel series, and a comic, with more info coming throughout this month. The Nijisanji’s vtubers, Kana Sukoya, Alice Mononobe, Elu, and Lize Helesta will also join the project, providing the voices of the characters.
Lie:verse Liars’s story is spun in parallel and crossover between a comic book and a novel series that shares the same worldview and stage, but focuses on different characters. A key visual depicting the stage and main characters, as well as an announcement trailer, have also been released.
The project will be developed as next-generation entertainment content that further enhances the affinity between the cast and the work by incorporating their appearances into the design of the characters played by the lifers as “actors”.

▍Story and Worldview
The story of Lie:verse Liars begins in Morihama City, where mysterious disappearances occur frequently. In this city, young people who have awakened to their abilities are known as the Awakened. They have to take on the challenges of incidents that occur one after another due to the false world that exists behind the scenes of this city.
To combat this, the Countermeasure Organization for False Worlds, Caliburn was formed to counter the end of the world that no one can recognize. Only they, the “Awakened,” are able to cross over into the false world and fight.
