The upcoming anime Kaina of the Great Snow Sea anime got a new trailer today, along with a beautifully illustrated key visual. (see below)
The anime, known as Ooyukiumi no Kaina in Japan, is based on an original story from mangaka Tsutomu Nihei (Knights of Sidonia), and follows protagonists Kaina and Liliha who set off on a journey to save the world.
The new Kaina of the Great Snow Sea key visual features Kaina and Liliha front and center, with Handagil (top), Hallesora (bottom left), Ngapoge (bottom right), Orinoga (top left), Amerota (top right) and Yaona (middle left).
All of the party look as though they are deathly series about the tasks that lie ahead of them.
Meanwhile, the new Kaina of the Great Snow Sea trailer features a beautiful art style, gorgeously designed fantastical places and some pretty exciting, high-energy action scenes.
It also gives us a preview of the opening theme ‘Telepath’ from Japanese rock duo Yorushika, as well as the ending theme song ‘Juvenile‘ from four-member vocal group Greeeen.
