On top of the wave of manga (plus one MMO) adaptations, the original anime Endride will air on Nippon Television in April. Regular junior-high student Shun Asaga finds himself transported to the world of Endra, an alternative “Hollow Earth”. When he meets the captive prince Emilio, they both agree to work together to achieve their separate ends. While Shun just wants to go back home, Emilio has different ideas. He’s out for revenge on the king of Deruzain.

This Endride Project original work will be directed by Fruits Basket’s Kenji Gotoh, with series composition by Idolm@ster’s Touko Machida and animation production by Durarara!! studio Brain’s Base. The characters have been designed by Bastard!! writer Kazushi Hagiwara and Soul Eater’s Nobuhiro Watsuki, and the main cast has been announced as follows:

Kenshō Ono as Shun Asanaga
Toshiki Masuda as Emilio
Karen Miyama as Alicia
Ayaka Ohashi as Fuarion
Hiroki Takahashi as Demetrio
Kōsuke Toriumi as Erujuia


An official Endride website has been launched, and the series’ official Twitter is also up and running for the curious to peruse.
