The official Twitter account of Hypergryph's Arknights smartphone game announced a television anime on Sunday. The first season, subtitled Reimei Zensou (Prelude to Dawn), is in production by Yostar Pictures.

Game Synopsis
Arknights takes place in the dystopian world of Terra, a world similar to Earth, with the exception that many Terrans, or "Ancients," sport animalistic traits and magic-like powers known as Originium Arts. The world of Terra is constantly devastated by Catastrophes, forcing its inhabitants to adopt a nomadic life through nomadic cities. These catastrophes brought with them the pandemic known as Oripathy, a terminal disease caused from exposure to Originium, a crystalline mineral left behind after Catastrophes. However, Originium has uses both as a powerful fuel source and strong construction material. It is also the source of the magic-like abilities of Arts.

The game is told from the perspective of Rhodes Island, a paramilitary medical organization, whose mission is to provide treatment to those infected with Oripathy. The organization is led by the "Doctor," who has recently lost their memory after waking from "a long sleep" in the middle of a city-wide catastrophe. The story follows Rhodes Island's conflict with the Reunion Movement, a violent non-state actor whose stated purpose is to create a better life for the Infected—individuals with Oripathy—by punishing those responsible for their plight.

Hypergryph released the game on both iOS and Android in May 2019. Yostar published the game worldwide the following January, with Longcheng publishing the game in Taiwan last June.

Oh wow, this was unexpected. Couldn’t really get into the game, I always got bored whenever I tried to reinstall it.
I know it’s got a HUGE, VERY HUGE amount of story each chapter.
Looking forward to this one for sure. Let’s hope the quality will be good. Also from the trail it seems like there will be multiple seasons? I’m guessing split cour.

ambiguous Doktah in the PV. let's. freaking. go!!

If everything goes right, this can easily be top among the currently adapted mobile games out there. Tho first few chapters are pretty good; it's what comes after that is amazing. As the name says, "prelude to dawn". My full trust is in Yostar; they've done amazing so far with past PVs and Holy Knight Light

Now that I think of it, I wonder if HG will do the music for AK anime, but anyways. Might also do some rereading before the anime.

Many of these Anime based on Smartphone games come out more awesome than the game itself.

Most games on phones are boring AF. I'll probably check this out when it comes by.

It has something to do with the source being trash.

And that's not just game adaptations.

No wonder, considering it has thousands of fanart on the Internet.
If you need me for something, message me on my profile.

Otherwise, I'm done with MAL forum.

Nice I can see this being pretty good, the story was pretty good if I remember correctly. Guess I’m going to dive back in to Gacha hell and start playing this again.

Oh my god it's finally happening! Glad they chose a somewhat gender-neutral voice for the doctor! I can't wait to see this incredible story getting animated! (Yeah I'm pretty hype if you can't already tell)

I've seen Arknights adverts on YouTube or Instagram in the past, it's one of the best game commercials I've ever seen and I used to wish for an anime to be made.


And Yes, Finally I knew it was going to be an anime. I can't believe my wish last year has come true

I'M SO FUCKIN HYPE!!

This is the most unexpecting thing to see. But It's here It's here not going to complained I hope it has a proper adaptation and the studio who will animate is the one making the pv. If possible

Simply stating something that probably the vast majority of everyone who's actually seen the story after the initial point (which some find boring) definitely agrees too. The plot is awesome, like straight up jaw-dropping, makes grown up men cry multiple times at key points and stuff (for anyone bothering to actually read carefully at least). Also has much meaning and many philosophical/ thought-provoking themes. The first season might not be able to portray all this but please don't think of this as generic in any way and give it a serious chance.

Oh boy, the story in arknight is very sad, depressing but surprisingly really good. If this gets a proper adaptation, this anime will easily become a good anime

There was once a signature here.
Apparently advicing people to not act in a way that would get them insulted is an insult itself. We truly live in a society.

Just seeing this be animated gets me hyped enough to literally play more of the game itself. And yet somehow I hope they do include the Darknights memoire for some in depth story

Looking forward to it. Arknights anime because the story of what I think, is good and the waifus are top tier

Let's go fellow dokutahs! Just know that we made this possible. It's your whaling that we're getting this. Seeing Yostar Pictures work on the PVs and Holy Knight Light, with enough time, this will be good. I'm very excited.

First season? Are they so confident in the anime's success? Also, given the genderless of the protagonist, I hope they don't repeat Azur Lane's problems

It looks like Genshin is an analogue of Komi-san for adaptations of Chinese games.

HYPPPPPEEEEEEE!!! Can't believe my favorite gacha ever is finally getting the anime treatment! Also possibly female Dokutah? LET'S GO!

I'm hoping it doesn't turn out like the Azur Lane adaptation, but I'm so stoked either way. Came back to the game after nearly a one-year break and I'm loving it once more. The game has so much untapped lore that I'd love to see fleshed out in animation format.

I'm so hyped now! As someone who plays the game since the launch of english server and still plays the game, I'm so excited. The lore of the game is so good, hoping that they will adapt the story faithfully.

If they will adapt the story, I'd say a 13 episode anime should be enough to adapt chapters 1 to 8 of the game then use the W event/side story as an OVA if the anime adaptation is well received. The first 4 chapters is pretty fine, it's the chapters 5 above and the side stories/events that made the game more interesting.

Also, Bagpipe is my best girl!

See people see the fact that arknights has around 3 volumes of light novel material (this is my guess) and say that they can do it in 13 episodes, not realising that most of this material is dialogue. Dialogue takes time and I can assure you there will not just be dialogue in this anime. I'd say 3 seasons of 12 episodes should be fine to cover up to the end of the reunion arc (first season first 4 chapters, second season next 3 chapters, last season last 2 chapters) which I'm hopeful for since this is "season 1".
