News | Valkyrie Drive (Bhikkhuni, Siren and Mermaid)

Mighty Morphin’ Power Lesbians!

Valkyrie Drive looks like something that will be pretty special.

It was announced back in March, as a project that was going to start with a game on the PS Vita (Bhikkhuni), a game for smartphones (Siren) and an anime (Mermaid).

The project was announced by Marvelous, and the people who are the helmet of the project are Kenichiro Takaki (Creator of Senran Kagura) and Hiraku Kaneko (Worked on The Qwaser of Stigmata)

Hiraku Kaneko is working as director and a character designer for Mermaid at the ARMS studio. Yousuke Kuroda (Worked on Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Hayate the Combat Butler) is working on series composition.

The “Beautiful girl sexy battle action” anime is set on 5 artificial islands.

This is the PV for the project

valkyriedrive2MERMAID – “Beautiful girl sexy battle action”

 

In the anime, Mamori Tokonome is transferred to the island Mermaid, then she ends up getting attacked, however, a newly transferred girl named Mirei Shikishima saves her. The enemy continues attacking and ends up cornering the pair. They think all hope is lost, but then Mirei kisses Mamori and Mamori turns into a sword, which Mirei uses to launch a counterattack against the enemies.

Here is the first PV for Mermaid

Unfortunately, there is no translation for this yet.

As this PV was revealed, it was also announced that Hitomi Harada will perform the shows opening song, “Overdrive” (which is shown in the second PV) and Yuka Iguchi and Mikako Izawa will perform the ending theme song, “Ultra Super Hyper Miracle” as their characters Mirei and Mamori.
