The Tsuki To Laika To Nosferatu anime has received a new trailer, which previews the show’s story and characters, as well as the opening song “Aka no Tsuki” (Crimson Moon) by ALI PROJECT. The anime is set to premiere in October.
Tsuki To Laika To Nosferatu (The Moon, Laika, and Nosferatu) is based on a series of light novels by Keisuke Makino, with the story involving a space race between the Federal Republic of Zilnitra in the east and the United Kingdom of Arnarck in the west.
