The official website for the Grisaia: Phantom Trigger anime began streaming a trailer for the Grisaia: Phantom Trigger the Animation Stargazer sequel on Friday. The video previews Maon Kurosaki's opening theme song "Gensō no Rinbu" and Yoshino Nanjō's ending theme song "Ryūrui Ruru Mama."
The anime will open in theaters in Japan on November 27.
The Campfire crowdfunding campaign for Grisaia: Phantom Trigger the Animation Stargazer reached its 10 million yen (about US$92,000) goal less than 24 hours after it launched last July. Each episode was originally planned to be 60 minutes long and would adapt one volume of the original visual novel.
The sequel will tell the story of the "Vol. 3" game. The anime will feature returning characters Rena, Maki, and Tohka, as well as the new character Gumi.
The anime's cast are reprising their roles from the previous anime. Akio Watanabe, the original character designer for the Grisaia franchise, is returning as the character designer for the sequel. Bibury Animation Studio is again producing the anime.
The first Grisaia: Phantom Trigger anime based on Frontwing's game of the same name opened in March 2019 at Tokyo's EJ Anime Theater Shinjuku and at four other theaters in Japan. Sound Cadence Studios is producing an English dub that will be included on the Blu-ray Disc release of the anime.
Anime director Tensho founded the new animation studio Bibury Animation Studio to produce the anime as its first work. Tensho also wrote and supervised the scripts. Watanabe served as the anime's character designer and chief animation director. Ryuichiro Yamakawa planned and produced the anime. Frontwing funded the anime on its own instead of using a production committee.

Old Man Dream: ...Umineko crossover. May have liked the idea with better handling of the story development. But it's basically made Satoko a rather unlikable character now.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
