Aniplex posted on their YouTube channel a new trailer of Engage Kiss anime that was teased back in Anime Japan 2022. The video announces and previews the opening theme song “Everyone, Scramble” (誰彼スクランブル) by halca, and it also announces a cast member and the full staff member list. The anime is set to premiere on July 2.
Tomoya Tanaka is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Shunsaku Yano is in charge of the world setting. Masaaki Takiyama is credited both as the character designer and chief animation director. Chiaki Furuzumi is also the sub-character designer and chief animation director. Yoshiaki Fujisawa is composing the music.
The anime is set in Baylong City, an artificial island city established, outside of any country’s jurisdiction, in the Pacific Ocean to exploit local natural resources. In particular, the mining of the new energy resource “orgonium” has resulted in an outbreak of “D disasters”, a phenomenon that attracts demons to the city. Private military companies (PMCs) are tasked with dealing with these incidents.
