The upcoming Alice Gear Aegis Expansion anime is set to begin broadcasting in Japan on April 3. In addition to the premiere date reveal, a two-minute trailer and key visual for the show were released. 

The trailer introduces characters like Yotsuyu Hirasaka and anime-original newcomer Nodoka Takahata, explains concepts like Actresses and the Alice Gear battle gear they use, and previews the opening song “Dash and Go!” by Aina Suzuki.

Alice Gear Aegis Expansion is inspired by the Alice Gear Aegis “bishoujo x mecha 3D action game,” which was first released in Japan in 2018 on Android and iOS before receiving a PC release in 2019. The anime is themed around the Actress‘ friendship and bonds.

QooApp describes the game, which has inspired several manga, a light novel, and an OVA, as:

Alice Gear Aegis is set in a future Tokyo. Players take the role of a commander that leads an army called Tokyo Shard. Together with the Alice Gear girls, his job is to save the people who wander in the vast universe. Their first target is Narukozaka Manufacturing.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
