MBC GROUP and TOKYOPOP announce first two MBC ANIME Productions

MBC ANIME – a strategic initiative by MBC GROUP and TOKYOPOP dedicated to the licensing, promotion, and production of anime content in the region – announces investments in two original anime productions scheduled to debut in Japan and worldwide this month. They are “Kami.App”  and “Protocol: Rain.

The shows, which are from Fuji TV and TV Asahi, will stream exclusively on Shahid, the world’s leading Arabic-streaming platform by MBC GROUP. In order to cater to current and future anime enthusiasts in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), MBC ANIME is also now part of the production committees of both Japanese broadcasters.

Streaming as a simulcast on Shahid, “Kami.App” is a battle-royale twisted action story where high school student Goro is pitted against rivals in a bid to become the ultimate kami, wielding the power to manipulate the cause and effect of the world. Jaded by everyday life, Goro must confront his high school crush Honoka as part of the deadly competition, revealing the deepest secrets of each kami candidate.

Created by YOKO TARO (video game director of “Nier”), written by JIN (creator of “Kagerou Daze”), and directed by Hiroyuki Seshita (known for “Knights of Sidonia”, “Ajin” and “Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters”), “Kami.App” also features character designs by Atsushi Ohkubo, the manga author behind “Soul Eater” and “Fire Force.” This original production brings together a remarkable creative dream team in the world of anime.

All 13 episodes of Season One are set to stream this year, with a second season planned for 2024.
