Legend of Mana -The Teardrop Crystal-, the TV anime adaptation of the Seiken Densetsu (Mana) video game series, has released a teaser video introducing the main cast.

As mentioned, this is the TV anime adaptation of Seiken Densetsu (Mana), a high fantasy action role-playing game series created by Koichi Ishii, with development formerly from Square, and is currently owned by Square Enix.

The series began as a handheld side story to Square's flagship franchise Final Fantasy, but has since branched off into its own series after the second installment, Secret of Mana.

The original game follows an unnamed hero as they restore the land of Fa'Diel by building the world around them and completing a number of interrelated quests in order to restore the Tree of Mana.

For this TV anime, the story will follow Shiloh (CV: Nobunaga Shimazaki), a boy living near the town of Domina. One day, he meets Elazul (CV: Yūichirō Umehara) and Princess Pearl (CV: Kaori Nazuka) who have been relentlessly pursued by thieves for the precious jewel on their chests.
