Qualidea Code

  • Qualidea Code is an upcoming supernatural, action anime airing this Summer 2016 Simulcast Season. "Qualidea Code is part of an overall multimedia project by five publishers: Shueisha's Dash X Bunko imprint, Kadokawa's Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint, Kadokawa's MF Bunko J imprint, Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint, and Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine. It launched in 2015 with several light novels, and a manga will be serialized in Jump Square in 2016.

    Speakeasy — the author unit made up of Sou Sagara (HENNEKO/The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.), Koushi Tachibana (Date A Live), and Wataru Watari (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) — is in charge of the original concept for the project alongside Marvelous. The three authors are also writing the anime's scripts."

    The anime takes place in a world where humans are continuing to fight a war against an enemy called UNKNOWN. UNKNOWN invaded several decades ago, and children entered a cold sleep to escape the invasion. When the children awoke, they found themselves with supernatural powers. The children set up defense cities in Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba in order to protect the country from the UNKNOWN, who appear through the Tokyo Bay Gate.

    "Inside the world of the multimedia project, Sou Sagara is in charge of the Tokyo story, Koushi Tachibana is in charge of the Kanagawa story, and Wataru Watari is in charge of the Chiba story.

    Kenichi Kawamura (Rozen Maiden, SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures (Black Butler, Fairy Tail, Sword Art Online, Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash). Matsuryū (Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye, Shōjo-tachi wa Kōya o Mezasu) drew the original character designs, and Hisayuki Tabata (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Yuyushiki) is adapting those designs for animation. Taku Iwasaki (Gurren Lagann, Noragami, Soul Eater) is composing the music.

    LiSA (Sword Art Online, Fate/Zero) will perform the opening theme song 'Brave Freak Out,' ClariS (Madoka Magica, Oreimo) will perform the first ending theme song 'Gravity,' and GARNiDELiA (Kill la Kill, The irregular at magic high school) will perform the second ending theme song 'Yakusoku -Promise Code-.'"

    The official website for Qualidea Code released character profiles debuting the main cast:

    Ichiya Suzaku

    The head of Tokyo City. He is cool and has a large amount of pride, and he despises inefficiency. He secretly longs to be a hero. He hates Kasumi. His power is that he can manipulate gravity with a gauntlet.

    Canaria Utara

    The subhead of Tokyo City. Her self-professed title is "The Botherer to Suzaku." She is weak, and tries hard at everything she does. Her catchphrase is "When you're in trouble, smile." She activates her power by singing.

    Asuha Chigusa

    The head of Chiba City. She is Kasumi's younger sister, and she's usually pretty listless, but can become trigger happy with her gun in the blink of an eye. She wields two guns, and her power is controlling the movements of material objects.

    Kasumi Chigusa

    The subhead of Chiba City. He is cynical and a realist. He often boasts of his own failures, and he is only sympathetic to his younger sister Asuha. His weapon is a sniper rifle, and his power is that he can use echolocation to search for things.

    Maihime Tenkawa

    The head of Kanagawa City. Nickname: Hime. She is the "strongest princess" who has reigned at the top of Kanagawa for a long time. She is idealistic and has a one-track mind, and her blunt behavior makes her stand out. She is proud of her incredible physical strength, and she uses a huge gun to blast away her opponents in one hit.

    Hotaru Rindo

    The subhead of Kanagawa City. She has a calm and composed disposition, and is only nice to Hime. Her eyes are so uncommonly observant that she can read her opponents' actions. Her other strong point is her observation of Hime. Her weapon is a katana, and her power is that she can make contact through her eyes.

    Seiki Yaegaki

    A girl affiliated with the Kanagawa Camp, and in charge of support for Maihime Tenkawa. She has a very slight presence, with the kind of personality to let her individuality be suppressed by those around her. She is constantly bothered by people not remembering her name.

    "The site also revealed Kyūtoku Asanagi and Airi Ibunami, both affiliated with the Southern Kantō Administration Bureau. The site will reveal character visuals for both characters in the next few days."

    Qualidea Code premieres on July 9, and will be simulcast on Crunchyroll.
