When we first saw a trailer for D_Cide Traumerei it was introduced as anime to explore the Cthulhu mythos.
That may still be true, but the latest trailer summons monsters in a far more card battle sort of way.
The story follows the kickboxing school student Ryuhei Oda who, as a child, saw his brother die in mysterious conditions. Despite that tragedy, Ryuehi is cheerful and able to shrug off the gloom.
An encounter with Tris, a strange creature, leaves him bitten and changed forever.
D_Cide is a mixed media project, as this latest trailer makes very clear, and is due to start airing in Japan on an impressive range of stations around July 10th.
