NIS America has lifted the lid on the Disgaea anime. We’ve previously featured the trailer, but now we have more details about it. The series is rather short only, twelve episodes to chronicle Laharl’s quest to rise as king of the Underworld. We’ve already mentioned that Oriental Light and Magic is handling the animation, but now we know that the character designer from Initial D Akira Kano is handling character design. Kiyotaka Isako who directed Pokemon 4Ever is directing the series and the overall creation is handled by Atsuhiro Tomioka who’s behind Samurai 7. Also the original Japanese cast from the PS2 game will be returning to do voice work for the anime. As for the US localization it’s being handled by Geneon.
