Legend of Mana: The Teardrop Crystal TV anime starts this October
Square Enix and Warner Bros. have shared a new trailer for Legend of Mana: The Teardrop Crystal TV anime that showcases the first footage of the upcoming show in motion. A previous teaser trailer in late April was primarily comprised of stills for character designs. The new trailer revealed that it will be airing this October.
The new trailer for Legend of Mana: The Teardrop Crystal shows some clips of how it will be adapting the Jumi storyline arc primarily through the eyes of Shiloh, the male protagonist in Legend of Mana. Elazul and Pearl were shown off when the teaser trailer dropped, as well. One of the biggest surprises is that the end of the trailer confirms that Serafina, the female protagonist, will be involved in the anime too.
Normally in the original game, players could only choose either the male or female protagonist at the beginning of the game and after that selection, the other main character would, effectively, cease to exist in the player's playthrough.
The Teardrop Crystal's new trailer shares some clips of the anime's opening theme song, as well. It is titled 'Tear of Will' performed by Serafina's voice actress, Saori Hayami. The song is composed and arranged by Kevin Penkin, who is primarily known for his work on the Made in Abyss and The Rising of the Shield Hero anime adaptations.
Several more Legend of Mana characters were revealed, along with their voice actors, down below.
