The Silver Guardian began airing on April 1. Crunchyroll is streaming the show as part of their Spring 2017 simulcast lineup.
The Silver Guardian is based on Chinese comic series Yín Zhi Shou Mù Rén. Masahiko Ohkura (Yukikaze, Blue Drop) is directing the show at Haoliners Emon, with Yoshiaki Tsubata (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Souten no Ken) providing character designs. Ohkura is in charge of series composition, along with Hidefumi Kimura (Avenger, Kiddy Grade).
Minako Seki (Kingdom) is scoring the title’s soundtrack.
Crunchyroll describes The Silver Guardian as:
The protagonist, Riku Suigin is a pro-level gamer. The heroine, Riku Rei, knows of this and is the most beautiful girl in school and also loves video games. Suigin receives a device to play a net game called “Grave Buster” from Rei, but Rei is suddenly kidnapped. When Rei puts his hand on the device, he’s sucked into the world of the game. And in that world, a battle between the tomb raiders and tomb protectors for the tomb of the mother goddess Bango’s tomb has been going on for 1000 years.
