Earlier today, anime publisher Sentai Filmworks announced that they have acquired “Leviathan ~ The Last Defense”, a new anime series set for release in North America later this year.
“Leviathan ~ The Last Defense” is a fantasy anime series based on the new Japanese mobile game from GREE. The 13-episode anime series is produced by the animation studio Gonzo (Last Exile – Fam, The Silver Wing) and it features direction from Kenichi Yatagai, series composition by Yasunori Ide and character designs by Takaharu Okuma.
Here is a description of “Leviathan ~ The Last Defense” from Sentai Filmworks.
There lands of Aquafall were a paradise, where water flows freely, the hills are covered with lush vegetation and life in all forms flourishes in peace and abundance. That’s before the meteors began to fall, each impact spawning new, hideous monsters. It soon becomes clear that there were others who want to claim the entire green world for themselves. An enemy that will not stop until everything has been vanquished. Fortunately, the fairy Syrop is on guard and knows exactly what to do. Working quickly, she recruits an extraordinary team of young women to form the base of the Aquafall Defenders: the incredibly strong Jormungand, the rich Bahamut and the stoic Leviathan. But can three lone girls really turn the tide of an alien invasion? The scales of fate hang in the balance in “Leviathan ~ The Last Defense”!
The series will be available on home video from Sentai Filmworks later this year and the publisher has said that fans can expect “Leviathan ~ The Last Defense” to be available soon through select digital outlets.
One such digital outlet is The Anime Network, who just sent out an email saying that “Leviathan ~ The Last Defense” episode one will be available June 1, 2013 (that is tomorrow for those of you wondering) at 2pm CDT. New episodes will follow every Saturday. For more information you can visit this link.
