Now, I wonder how long until the “Darling-kun” jokes begin?

Earlier today, the official DARLING in the FRANXX anime’s Twitter account updated with a new promotional teaser. The trailer introduces the fifth (and final) pair of protagonists, along with their Franxx.

The two characters are named Code:196 (“Ikuno”) and Code:326 (“Mitsuru”), while their Franxx is called Chlorophytum. The trailer teases that new details will be released next week.

DARLING in the FRANKXX is a co-production between Trigger and A-1 Pictures. Atsushi Nishigori (THE IDOLM@STER) is directing the project, with Masayoshi Tanaka (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, High School of the Dead) providing character designs. The team of Atsushi Nishigori and Naotaka Hayashi will collaborate on series composition.

Other confirmed staff members include:

  • Assistant Director: Toshifumi Akai
  • Action Supervisor: Masayoshi Tanaka
  • Chief Animation Director: Masayoshi Tanaka
  • Mechanical Design: Shigeto Koyama
