Neppu Kairiku bushi Road tells about the condition of the world that is attacked by a poison called “Shinobi” which spreads on earth due to an asteroid. Humans also fled to a place called “Kairiku”, a place at the bottom of the sea. There, people struggle to protect themselves from the effects of the poison. Ame, a princess from a fallen country fights to save the world. In the midst of the chaotic world conditions, “Holy Weapon Giga Road” and a knight “Yagyu” become a glimmer of hope to fight the effects of the poison of “Shinobi”.
Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road was originally announced in 2003 as a collaboration between Gainax, Takara and Broccoli and will be broadcast in 2005. But somehow the project was not heard from until 2013, when this project will finally be handled by Bushiroad, Bandai Visual, Nitroplus and animation studio Kinema Citrus.
Masayuki Sakoi, who previously directed Princess Resurrection and Needless, is believed to be the director of this anime, assisted by Satoshi Mori (Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Eureka Seven – good night, sleep tight, young lovers). Nitroplus writers Norimitsu Kaihō (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Guilty Gear) and Ukyō Kodachi (Macross Frontier novels, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE novels) are working on the screenplay, as well as collaborating on screenplay, Sayaka Harada (Library War, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan).
Mai Toda (Holy Knight) will be in charge of designing the characters based on the original designs created by Shinov Mimori of Nitroplus. The mecha designs will be handled by Niθ (Nitroplus), Makoto Ishiwata (Nitroplus), and Takeshi Takakura. Meanwhile, Chuuouhigashiguchi (Nitroplus) and Takeshi Takakura will design the creatures in the anime. Masatoshi Ono (Hunter × Hunter, Mama wa Poyopoyo-Saurus ga Osuki) will perform the ending theme song for the anime. The original concept for Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road was created by Bushiroad Director Takaaki Kidani, while Sunao Yoshida, the late author of Trinity Blood, co-wrote the original story with Nitroplus and Bushiroad.
The Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road anime will air as a three-hour special on Tokyo MX and BS11 stations on December 31 starting at 7 p.m. KST.
