Dies Irae will début on FunimationNow on October 24, at 4:00PM Eastern (1:00PM Pacific).

Dies Irae is based on game developer Light’s visual novel of the same name. Susumu Kudo (Coppelion, Sakura Wars 2 OVA) is directing the project at ACGT, with Takaaki Fukuyo providing character designs. Takashi Masada is in charge of series composition for the project.

Funimation describes the show as:

At the end of World War II, sorcerers use the lives lost in battle as a ritual sacrifice in an attempt to resurrect a group of supermen whose coming would signify the world’s end. Yet when the war finally ends, no one knows whether the ritual was a success. Decades pass, and it’s all forgotten until present-day Japan when Ren Fuji has a disturbing dream of black-clothed knights.
