The official website for this television cartoon, which is called Bun’O Fujisawa’s MARS RED
interesting stage reading production, started to live the first promo video on Wednesday. This video shows the main cartoon character, and it promotes the project as the first television cartoon, which is based on a very interesting stage of the reading production.
This story is about the cast of the “Code Zero” unit.
Tasuku Hatanaka as Shutaro Kurusu, an Vampire and a rookie on the squad.
Junichi Suwabe as Yoshinobu Maeda, as a captain of code zero and one of the most powerful people.
Akira Ishida, as Takeuchi, as a D- class vampire and a crazy scientist with an eternal brain.
Keinichi Suzumura as Suwa, a veteran vamire since Edo Time.
The Code zero members also introduce Tokuichi Yamagami, who is an intelligent vampire (not yet ranked.)
Funimation, which is co-producing the cartoon with Yomiuri TV Enterprise, has released the synopsis of the story:
“MARS RED takes place in 1923, and vampires have existed for quite a while. But now, the number of vampires is increasing, and a mysterious, artificial blood source called Ascra has appeared.
The Japanese government, in turn, creates “Code Zero,” a unit within the army tasked with taking down the vampiric forces. And what better way to track vampires than by using vampires?
Created by Lieutenant General Nakajima, this unit has historically been in the business of information war but has been re-assigned to solve the vampire crisis. It’s up to Code Zero and the S-class vampire Deffrot to investigate this increase and put a stop to it before society crumbles.
Kouhei Hatano (Freezing Vibration, Angels of Death episode director) is directing the anime at Signal.MD. Jun’ichi Fujisaku (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Blood+, Blood-C, The Beast Player Erin) is writing and supervising the scripts. Kemuri Karakara (Donten ni Warau), who is drawing the franchise’s manga adaptation, is credited for the original character designs. Yukari Takeuchi (Norn9) is adapting those designs for animation. Original creator Bun’ō Fujisawa is the sound director. Cellist Toshiyuki Muranaka (In This Corner of the World) is composing the music.”
The first stage production of Mars red was in the year 2013, with more shows following in 2015 and 2017. Karakara launched the manga movie in Mag Garden’s every month Comic Garden magazine on January 4th.
