Chaos Dragon details arrived over the past couple of days.
Chaos Dragon comes from a series of table top role-playing logs called “Red Dragon” from Ryohgo Narita (Durarara!!), Izuki Kogyoku (Garden Lost), Kinoko Nasu (The Garden of Sinners), Makoto Sanda (Rental Magica), Simadoriru, and Gen Urobuchi (Madoka Magica). Sanda acted as dungeon master while the rest navigated through a series of table top scenarios during a six day campaign. Once the campaign finished, they compiled the logs and transcribed them to novels. Chrome Dragon’s animated series will begin in Japan for the Summer season in July. Not stopping with just an anime series, Chaos Dragon will have both a smartphone app as well as a table-top game becoming a multimedia property. A trailer for Chrome Dragon came last year but a new detailed trailer debuted during the announcement which you can see below:
Fandom Post had the following details about the plot:
The series takes place in Huanli (the Year of Dazzling) 3015. Donatia and Kouran, two countries fighting for supremacy, are causing the world to be torn apart due to the constant war. Amidst the strife is the island country Nil Kamui, which has lost its independence. Red Dragon, the guardian god of Nil Kamui, goes out of control. Will the island country be able to regain its independence?
Masato Matsune (Meganebu! and Unbreakable Machine Doll) will direct the anime series while Ukyo Kodachi (Naruto Macross Novel writer) will be the head writer with Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Eureka Seven AO) assisting.
