A new video has released for the anime adaptation of Akame ga Kill! It is a TV commercial to advertise the series, which will be animated by White Fox (Steins;Gate, Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?) and directed by Tomoki Kobayashi (Amagami SS, Utawarerumono). The anime stars Sora Amamiya (Liliana from Log Horizon) as Akame, Souma Saito (Tadashi Yamaguchi in Haikyuu!!) as Tatsumi, Yukari Tamura (Nui Harime in Kill la Kill) as Mein, and Yuu Asakawa (Rider from Fate/stay night) as Leone.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
In a fantasy world, fighter Tatsumi sets out for the Capitol to earn money for his starving village, and finds a world of unimaginable corruption, all spreading from the depraved Prime Minister who controls the child Emperor’s ear. After nearly becoming a victim of this corruption himself, Tatsumi is recruited by Night Raid, a group of assassins dedicated to eliminating the corruption plaguing the Capitol by mercilessly killing those responsible.
Akame ga Kill! will air on July 7 during the Summer 2014 anime season.
