As one of the most popular post-apocalyptic games, Arknights’ anime is bound to have every gamer otaku excited for the release.
After a year of teasing fans with the announcement, the franchise finally graced us with promotional media that is already blowing our minds.
Following this, the Arknights franchise has revealed an action-packed trailer for the Arknights: Prelude to Dawn anime series.
Besides the thrilling combat scenes, we also get the protagonist Amiya delivering a dialog that reveals the tragic truth of Terra.
She says how Originium is a source of life for the people of Terra, but the valuable resource is also the cause of the deadly Oripathy disease. Since they can’t save everyone by fighting alone, they need to cut off the illness from where it originates.
However, something like this might lead to many wars and instability on Terra. Why’s that? Because Originium is a highly precious resource and Terra is a near-dystopian society. People who capitalize on the energy source will try to stop Amiya.
As the video ends, Amiya turns toward a masked figure and calls them ‘doctor.’ She said they’re the only hope of solving the Originium and Oripathy conflict.
Arknights’ story is not so different from our world. Capitalizing on resources that might lead to environmental destruction is equally prevalent in the real world.
That’s probably one of the primary reasons why the franchise is so popular: it accurately depicts our reality. Needless to say, I’m super excited to see what the anime has in store for us.
