Based on the Visual Arts/Key’s mixed media project, Prima Doll anime unveiled the first trailer that previews the opening song “Yumesaki*Halle Stage” (夢咲*ハレ舞台) performed by the character unit, Chanoir, formed by Haizakura (CV: Azumi Waki), Karasuba (CV: Tomori Kusunoki), Gekka (CV: Miyu Tomita), Hо̄kiboshi (CV: Yuki Nakashima), and Retzel (CV: Akari Kitō). The anime will premiere in July 2022.
Prima Doll centers the autonomous mechanical dolls, or automata, who work at Kuronekotei, a coffee shop that sits at the corner of the fifth district of the imperial capital. However, they were originally made as weapons for a great war that ended a few years ago. Now, they have been restored and dressed in shiny kimonos.
The character designer includes Na-Ga, Fuji Choco, and mangaka Hara Yui. More popular artists will be revealed later. “Summer Pockets” director Kai and “Hatsukoi 1/1” director Tohya Okano are writing the story.
