Thank you for being a Franxx~!

Earlier today, the official DARLING in the FRANXX anime’s Twitter account updated with several new teasers. A story trailer and key visual, along with several character visuals were released. We break the details down below:

Promo Video

The 36-second trailer offers a brief description of the show’s plot, before confirming the show’s premiere window.

The trailer’s text roughly translates to:

This place is a “birdcage.”
A place that’s closed-off, a place that’s regulated.
There’s just one reason to live-
It’s our battle.
For the sake of our ancestors; for the sake of someday flying away; for the sakd of our world
For the sake of someday flying away-
But she (Zero Two) was different.
Will you be my Darling?

DARLING in the FRANXX will air in January 2018 on the following networks:

  • Tokyo MX
  • BS11
  • ABC Asahi Broadcasting
  • Gunma TV
  • Tochigi TV
  • Mētele
