Fans of the Tales of Zestiria video game won’t have to wait too long for the announced anime titled Tales of Zestiria the X. Bandai Namco has updated the official site with new that the anime will premier on July 3 on Tokyo MX.
The anime’s story is described here:
Sorey is a human youth who grew up among the “seraphim” (tenzoku), spiritual beings not visible to humans.
Sorey believes in the folklore that says “long ago, every human was able to see the seraphim” and dreams of unraveling the ancient mystery to make the world a place where people and seraphim can live together in peace.
One day, Sorey visits the human capital for the very first time. He becomes embroiled in an incident during which he pulls out a holy sword imbedded in a rock and ends up becoming a “Shepherd,” one who casts away calamity from the world. He begins to realize the gravity of his mission, and his dream of coexistence between mankind and the seraphim becomes more intense—
And thus, the Shepherd embarks on an amazing journey with his companions.
Additionally, cast members from the game are reprising their character voice over, including:
- Ryohei Kimura as Sorey
- Ryota Ohsaka as Mikleo
- Ai Kayano as Alisha
- Mikako Komatsu as Rose
- Misato Fukuen as Edna
- Daisuke Ono as Dezel
- Kenjiro Tsuda as Zaveid
Sadly, Miyu Masuki passed away last November, and Noriko Shitaya will be voicing Lailah.
Tales of Zesteria the X will air July 5 in Japan.
