Coming This Week: Towanoquon - English Dubbed
Posted by: Rai | June 6, 2012
This week will be a big one for fanatics of the criminally underrated 6 part mini series, Towanoquon. After a ton of requests (and quite a bit of "friendly" threats), we're giving our guys what they want: an English dubbed version will begin rolling out this week on Anime Network Online AND Anime Network VOD!
Although this show went a little under the radar last year, what with the OTHER stellar six part mini series (Broken Blade) and quite a few standouts during the season, this show is one you don't want to miss. Packed with beautiful animated action sequences, an intriguingly complex story, and characters that will grow on you like a second skin, Towanoquon is guaranteed to entertain, and can very easily become one of your favorite new shows.
Towanoquon boasts an all-star cast of English VA's (which you will have fun figuring out when you watch the first episode!), and an animation team that features the famed late Director Umanosuke Iida (Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Hellsing), with character designs by Toshihiro Kawamoto (Cowboy Bebop, Wolf's Rain), and with concept designs by Yutaka Izubuchi (Patlabor, Gundam 0080). Produced by studio BONES, you can expect the same type of top notch quality as their other projects as well.
Want to know more? Check out the show description, straight from the Anime Network Online Player:
No man, not even a superhuman, can stand alone against a faceless adversary. In futuristic Tokyo, a new breed of humans, known as Attractors, awaken to find themselves prey to Custos, a sinister organization of cyborgs. However, strength lies in numbers and hope for survival grows from the emergence of a leader: Quon, an idealistic youth with the power to heal. Along with the speed demon Yuri, psi-voiced Kiri, telepath Tei and teleporter Takao, the Attractors' only chance to survive is to unite and fight back with all the fury and anger of a group with nothing left to lose. The best names in epic, superhero sci-fi anime come together to produce a new kind of legend: TOWANOQUON!
Towanoquon Ep. 1 - "The Ephemeral Petal" will be available this Friday, June 8, 2012. Don't miss it!
