Game and animation content planning company Red Entertainment announced on Sunday that its Scared Rider Xechs otome game will be adapted into a TV anime in Summer 2016. The announcement was made at the game's New Days 2016 Haru no Submission event.
Scared Rider Xechs, which was developed by Rejet, is billed as a "love adventure game" and was released for the PlayStation 2 console in 2010. A sequel titled Stardust Lovers was also released in 2011. The game was ported for the PlayStation Portable in 2012 and for the PlayStation Vita in 2015.
The Blue World, which symbolizes reason, is under constant attack by the creatures called the Nightfly O'Note originating from the Red World, symbolizing instinct. Akira Asagi, the 17-year-old protagonist who is a researcher at Blue World, is nominated to lead the war at Ryuukyuu LAG, a proud defense facility on the islands of Ishigaki and Iriomote. She meets the sixth combat unit "IS," which was formed four years after a fierce battle that annihilated the fifth unit. Akira must lead these six riders, also called the Scared Rider Xechs, to fight against the other world while at the same time deepening the relationship among them.
