Deca-Dence Anime Plot
The official website to TV anime describes the series as:
Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000m-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat. Denizens of Deca-dence fall into two categories: Gears, warriors who fight the Gadoll daily, and Tankers, those without the skills to fight.
One day, Natsume, a Tanker girl who dreams of becoming a Gear meets surly Kaburagi, an armor repairman of Deca-dence. This chance meeting between the seemingly two opposites, the girl with a positive attitude who never gives up on her dreams and the realist who has given up on his, will eventually shake the future course of this world.
Cast, Studio and Staff
With Studio Nut credited for animation, Mob Psycho 100 and Death Parade director Yuzuru Tachikawa is directing it. When asked about what he thinks of project, he said, “It has been quite a while since I was last involved in an Original TV Animation Series! I have come to the mid-career point in my career as an Animation Director, but I am so excited to tackle this untried genre. For sure now, my hands are still full of cuts that I do not know how to go through with. “DECA-DENCE” is full of highlights, the drama unfolding in a world that is larger than life, not to mention the fights against big monsters and a gigantic moving fortress, too!!”
The script is being handled by Hiroshi Seko, who has previously worked with Tachikawa on both seasons of Mob Psycho 100. The music is composed by Masahiro Tokuda and character design for animation is handled by Shinichi Kurita, who was part of the Death Parade team.
