The official website of the Megaton-kyuu Musashi television anime revealed the cast, staff, and a key visual (pictured) on Wednesday. The anime will broadcast on Fridays beginning October 1 at 10:00 p.m. on Tokyo MX, followed by BS Fuji on October 2 at 12:30 a.m.

In an ordinary town, there are people who live a peaceful and fulfilling life. But they don't know that it is a false peace. The untold truth... The earth has already been destroyed...

99.9% of the human race has been wiped out by a mysterious alien force from outer space. The enemy is named "Dracters." Eventually, a large hole was drilled in the earth and terraformed into a suitable environment for the aliens to live. Humans have no choice but to hide in shelters to escape their eyes. Waiting for the day of resurrection, which they do not know when it will come...

The inhabitants of the shelter Ixia have had their memories of the day of destruction erased, and live a normal life without knowing anything about it. However, some of them, the "chosen ones," have become pilots, driving giant robots called "Rogue" and fighting against aliens. Today, another new pilot is selected... (Source: Crunchyroll, edited)

I'm more interested in the game than the anime (which is panning out to be great), but I'll watch it anyway.

Only like 2 or 3 days ago I was wondering if this project had kicked the bucket completely, but it seems to've brought itself back with that cast list. Lot of good names, should be worth a look.

^Same considering it was supposed to start this season i thought it was canceled.

For the last few months the official twitter of this anime/game was averaging 1 tweet per month so the project seemed likely dead.

Is there any chance for Pilot Film of this to be added to the database (even though official deleted it)? Since there are slightly different voice casts for that ver. (been thinking about this for a while and not sure if I should mention this)

In the west, yeah, but it'll be probably be a huge hit in Japan. Level-5 knows how to market their games and their respective anime to the younger audiences and fujoshis. Just look at the huge sucess of Yokai Watch, Inazuma Eleven and Danball Senki.

I still can't believe a show about transforming trains has had guest appearances of the Evangelion cast and fucking Miku Hatsune. What a show.

I'm really surprised at the number of Mecha adaptations we've received this year. I'm going to wait for the PV to come out before I add this.
