Yostar Pictures described Arknights: Prelude to Dawn, the first television anime of Hypergryph’s Arknights mobile game, as “part one” when it announced the show in October 2021. Saturday’s announcement did not specify whether Arknights: Perish in Frost is the second part or not.
Yuki Watanabe directed the Arknights: Prelude to Dawn anime at Yostar Pictures, with Masataka Nishikawa as assistant director. Both previously worked on the game’s first anniversary anime short “Holy Knight Light”, and Watanabe worked on many of the game’s animated promotional short videos. Aya Takafuji (chief animator for Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia, SSSS.Gridman) adapted the character designs for the animation.
Chinese developers Studio Montagne and Hypergryph released the game in China in May 2019, then Yostar launched the game worldwide in January 2020. The game has adapted several promotional videos. images since 2019 and a 9-minute “Holy Knight Light” anime short in December 2021 to mark the game’s first anniversary.
The game is set in a fantasy world called Terra with a modern sci-fi motif. Terra is plagued by rare but devastating Disasters that force most people to live in nomadic cities. Catastrophe also produces the rare mineral Originium, which gives it high energy and is therefore a valuable resource, but also consumes everything around it as it grows. People with long-term exposure to Originium easily develop a wasting disease known as Oripathy. The story revolves around the lives of individuals infected with Oripathy. A roving health company called Rhodes Island offers a helping hand and a place to belong to Infected People who are often shunned. However, Rhodes Island often has to conduct special paramilitary operations against the Reunion Movement, a terrorist organization that conducts acts of violence against governments that persecute the Infected.
