The main promotional video has been released for Arknights: Prelude to Dawn, the Japanese TV anime adaptation of the Chinese RPG/tower defense gacha video game Arknights.
The TV anime is produced by Yostar Pictures and will start airing on Oct. 28, 2022. It will adapt the Main Theme, making it canon to the Arknights storyline.
The story of Arknights takes place in the dystopian world of Terra, which is constantly devastated by ecological disasters called Catastrophes. From the aftermath of these disasters, a black crystalline mineral called Orignium is produced.
Originium, while useful as a source of energy, is harmful to those exposed to it, inducing a terminal disease called Oripathy. Non-governmental pharmaceutical corporation Rhodes Island has made it their mission to aid the infected via skilled hires called Operators.
This main PV reveals the cast of the Reunion Movement, the main antagonistic faction of the first part of the Arknights storyline.
