Usually, we see adaptations from anime to stage, not the other way around!
Earlier today, Avex Pictures’ Dive II Entertainment music label announced that its Escha Chron stage recital project will receive an anime adaptation. A visual for the project was released, which you can check out below:
Dive II Entertainment first originally produced Escha Chron for their “D-World vol. 0” event. The story revolves around a pair of young women, who couldn’t be any more different. The two girls, named Chron and Escha, share a drab, empty, monochrome world. As they experience the lights and sounds of our world, the two begin to color the world with what they experience.
An official website for the project also opened its doors, with the first cast and crew details.
Hikaru Yamaguchi will direct Escha Chron at Lerche, with Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Concrete Revolutio) serving as Chief Director. Satomi Watanabe is providing character designs, while Tatsuya Takahashi (THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e!, High School of the Dead episodes 4 & 9) writes the screenplay. Music will be produced by Hifumi, Inc.
Toru Minazuki (To Heart) crafted the original character designs.
The series will cast Kiyono Yasuno and Chika Anzai as Chron (left in the visual) and Escha (right in the visual), respectively. The two are reprising their roles from the stage recital.
