After so much waiting and anticipation, we couldn’t be more excited to share that the latest CM for A-1 Pictures and Studio TRIGGER’s collaborative animated series “DARLING in the FRANXX” is finally here. Included alongside the CM is our all-new key visual for the series, as well as the January 2018 premiere date we’ve all been clammering to find out.

The translated text from the trailer can be read below:
This place is a “birdcage.”
A place that is shut
A place that is controlled
There is only one reason to live —
For the sake of our fathers
To someday fly away —
For the sake of the world
But that girl, Zero Two, was different
Won’t you become my darling?
Originally announced during Anime Expo 2017 at the Studio TRIGGER panel, “DARLING in the FRANXX” is the latest brainchild of Atsushi Nishigori, following a group of teenagers and their Franxx. There’s currently little known about the project beyond a campaign of PVs released to introduce each of the series’ main characters, though from those alone the series already shows potential.
With the series premiere slated for January 2018, we can only imagine the slew of story-filled information we’ll be receiving in the coming weeks and months. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as even more is announced, and if you’re interested in checking out our past write-ups on the series, you can view our archives.
