Season: Summer 2016
Premiere Date: July 10, 2016
Project QUALIDEA is a multimedia project consisting of prologue novels written by three different writers, a twelve-episode anime series, manga series, and a novelization of the anime series itself. Writing the novels are famous light novel authors Sou Sagara (The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat), Koushi Tachibana (Date A Live), and Wataru Watari (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU). Each author writes about a different city’s camp, with Sagara in charge of the Tokyo encampment, Tachibana writing the story of Kanagawa, and Watari penning the adventures of the characters from the Chiba base.
Humanity is fighting against the “UNKNOWN”: mysterious enemies that are coming out of a gate found in Tokyo Bay. When the main characters wake up from their long cold sleep, they learn that they have supernatural abilities. For the defense of their country, the boys and girls battle in their respective cities: Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba.
Voice: Souma Saito
The main character and leader of the Tokyo area. He is a sober-headed, prideful young man who looks down on incompetence, but also secretly longs to become a hero. He does not like Kasumi Chigusa. His weapon is a gauntlet sword and his ability is gravity control.
Voice: Yui Ishikawa
The sub leader of Tokyo. She takes care of Ichiya and tends to work too hard on every single task. Her favorite phrase is “smile when you’re in a pinch.” Her special ability is “singing” and she uses this power to activate Ichiya’s ability.
Voice: Aoi Yuki
Nicknamed Hime (a word that means “princess”), Maihime is the most powerful girl within the three areas. An idealist, she behaves impulsively and likes to beat her enemies with a single blow of a giant sword. She also has very strong arms.
Voice: Ayaka Fukuhara
A young woman who is cool and calm, but very kind to Hime. She has outstanding observation skills, making her very good at reading her enemies’ moves.
Voice: Chika Anzai
A girl who is Kasumi’s younger sister and the leader of Kanagawa. She usually acts like an ordinary young teenager but once she holds a gun, her personality changes. She is secretly up-to-date on fashion. Her weapons are two pistols, and she has the ability of kinematic control.
Voice: Yuma Uchida
An ironic and down-to-earth young man who pretends that he is a bad guy, and his sister is the only one who understands him. His weapon is a sniper rifle, and his ability is scanning through echolocation.
