Premieres in Japan this summer
Wonderful news for fans of the Atelier series, as Koei Tecmo has revealed that a new anime adaptation of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout is currently in production inc collaboration with Aniplex. The new TV series is expected to premiere in Japan this coming summer.
Not much was offered in the way of detail about the anime, but it is confirmed to be a straight adaptation of the 2019 video game, which saw young hero Reisalin Stout — more commonly known as “Ryza”, embark upon a country-crossing series of adventures with her friends, where they become embroiled in a world of magic, alchemy, and monsters. The anime is being produced by studio Liden Films, who have a proven pedigree in adapting games and manga to the medium of animation.
Koei Tecmo and Aniplex announced that more details about the series will be revealed at the dramatically titled “Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key Launch and Anime Adapation!” event, which is scheduled to take place this Sunday at the Anime Japan 2023 expo. As you can see from the teaser trailer above, the new anime features some wonderful lineart and animation, even if the camera is a tad on the shameless side.
It’s a very promising look at what will no doubt be an eagerly anticipated show for the Atelier faithful.
