One year after Valkyria Chronicles introduced Japan to Gallia as a PlayStation 3 game it will have an anime series broadcasting on Tokyo MX. Tokyo Metropolitan Television announced the Valkyria Chronicles anime is in their April lineup and shared some artwork of Alicia, Welkin, and Faldio today. Unfortunately, the living watercolor look from Sega’s CANVAS graphic engine won’t carry over in the anime.
On the plus side the original voice actors are reprising their roles. Marina Inoue is voicing Alicia, Susumu Chiba takes care of Welkin, and Takahiro Sakurai does the voice of Faldio. Random trivia: Sakurai also played Cloud in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children too.
Hey, maybe Sega will be able to pull a similar stunt with the US version of the Valkyria Chronicles anime if we get it. Anime isn’t doing well here now and sales-wise neither is Valkyria Chronicles. All jokes aside if you like RPGs and own a PlayStation 3 be sure to check Valkyria Chronicles out it’s a gem.
