Rage of Bahamut Genesis Visual 001 - 20160213Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is based on GungHo’s Rage of Bahamut smartphone game. The series was directed by Keiichi Satou (Karas, Tiger & Bunny) at studio MAPPA. Naoyuki Onda (Berserk: The Golden Age, Psycho-Pass: The Movie) provided character designs, while Keiichi Hasegawa took charge of series composition.

Funimation describes the series as follows:

Meet Favaro Leone, professional bounty hunter and casual scoundrel. When he’s not crossing swords with his arch nemesis and former best friend, Kaisar Lidford, he can be found at the local tavern spinning tall tales to anyone who will listen. After a one-winged demoness overhears his drunken boasts, she wrangles him into an unbreakable contract that will force him to make good on the promise he made.

With nothing but a destination in mind, the pair set out on their grand adventure—completely unaware of the dark forces working to fulfill an ancient prophecy that will bring about the end of the world. That is, unless a charming rogue, a clueless demon, a disgraced knight, and a tiny zombie can band together to change the course of history.

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis will hit DVD and Blu-Ray on April 26. Funimation is streaming the show in its entirety on their digital platform.
