He taught them everything they know himself, and encourages them to sign up to become apprentices in the Bracers Guild. Soon after, however, he receives a letter and has to leave on business, leaving Estelle and Joshua to fend for themselves. While working, they receive notice one day that their father’s airship has gone missing. With this in mind, the two gear themselves up, and set off to find the ship and save their father.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

###SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “LEGEND OF THE HEROES ~ TRAILS IN THE SKY”

HOUSTON, June 29, 2012 — The blood of heroes is a nice addition to any family line, and Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition: Legend of the Heroes ~ Trails in the Sky. Based on the hit video game of the same name, Legend of the Heroes features direction by Masaki Tachibana (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0), series composition & screenplays by Makoto Uezu (Utawarerumono, Akane Iro no Somaru Saka) and character designs by Atsuko Nozaki (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0)

Ten years ago, a massive invasion by the Erebonian Empire almost shattered the Kingdom of Liberl, piercing to the heart of Capital City before being driven back by a determined counteroffensive led by Cassius Bright. Now, as the invaders pace behind the northern borders, coveting the small kingdom’s magic and high technology, Liberl slowly rebuilds with the aid of the Bracer’s Guild, whose mystical use of “Craft” is even more intrinsic to the nation’s defense than its own army. For young Estelle Bright, daughter of Cassius, this is all just ancient history that she and her adopted brother Joshua learned as kids. But history has a way of repeating itself, and as they prepare to join the Bracers Guild themselves, sinister forces are preparing to thrust them into the familiar family situation of being in the worst possible place when mayhem breaks out. Because when their father’s airship goes suddenly missing, of course it only makes sense to two green, but extraordinarily capable, young teenagers to strike out on a rescue mission of their own!

Legend of the Heroes ~ Trails in the Sky will be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow later this year.

Long time no see. I just heard that you got The trails in the sky anime and I want to ask that can you guys please keep everything intact as much as possible? Also to ask that if you are dubbing it to use the voices xseed used in the games please? I love the game and I am happy sentai is bringing the anime over here. Best of luck!

Ps. Sort of bad timing though since the second chapter of the game has NOT been released here in the states yet and the anime series does contain spoilers for thos who have not played the second chapter of the games yet.


#3

The friendly folks over at Fandom Post pointed out that the title of the game is “The Legend of Heroes” and that this is “Legend of the Heroes”.

I checked with Sentai/Section23 and confirmed that the anime will be called “Legend of the Heroes”.


#4

Any reason for the slight change in the word order? Just curious. I hope they keep all the names intact though. The name still does mean relativly the same though.


#5

They didn’t say and I didn’t ask.


#6

Just received an email from Mike at Section23:


#7
