The Marginal Service, a new original television anime from Cygames, debuted a new promotional video and fresh artwork on its official website on Friday.
Altogether the video includes a list of more cast members, the anime’s April 11 release date, and a sneak peek of Mamoru Miyano’s “Quiet explosion,” the show’s opening theme music.
The Marginal Service Trailer and Key Visual
In the trailer, Brian Nightraider is seen pursuing a criminal who then kills himself. Later, he receives a letter and walks into The Marginal Service’s office. He joins forces with other members there to battle mysterious alien creatures.
Aside from the trailer the studio also released a new key visual in which each of the key characters is shown wearing a uniform. Given that they are all wielding power tools, such as drills and nail guns, they all give the impression of being construction workers. The variously colored clothing has a Super Sentai feel to it.
Along with the trailer and key visuals, on April 11, the anime will debut on NTV, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and TV Aichi. On April 12, BS NTV, and on April 15, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, the anime will air for the first time.
