Rough Translation: And with that, a second season of “The Silver Guardian” is officially in production! The second season will air in January 2018. More details will be announced on the official website, so stay tuned!
The Silver Guardian debuted on Japanese TV on April 1.
The show is based on Chinese comic series Yín Zhī Shǒu Mù Rén. Masahiko Ohkura (Yukikaze, Blue Drop) directed the show at Haoliners Emon, with Yoshiaki Tsubata (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Souten no Ken) providing character designs. Ohkura was in charge of series composition, along with Hidefumi Kimura (Avenger, Kiddy Grade).
Minako Seki (Kingdom) is scoring the title’s soundtrack.
Funimation currently streams The Silver Guardian as a SimulDub. They describe the show as:
High school students and pro-level gamers Riku Suigin and Riku Rei are about to get swept up in an RPG unlike any other they’ve played before. Before her mysterious disappearance, Rei sends Suigin a device to access a new tomb raiding game. Upon inspecting it, Suigin is transported into the game where it’s up to him to put his skills to the test to save his friend.
