Synopsis of the anime series
Doll’s Frontline will follow the story of the first game, where the consequences of the Third World War had led to the destruction of nations and uninhabitable radioactive regions. The lack of resources for protection made the private military companies like Griffin profit by making android soldiers also known as tactical dolls.
These said dolls were tasked with fighting the rogue android army of Sangvis Ferri. The main focus of the anime series will be on the distinguished leader of an elite team “Anti-Rain”, and her operations against the Sangvis Ferri. A PV was released on 28 December 2020, highlighting various scenes from the anime, which also confirmed that the same voice actors were voicing the characters in the anime as in the game.
The main cast of characters has the same voice actors such as Nozomi Yamane (M16A1), Haruka Tomatsu (M4A1), Nao Touyama (Carina), Yukari Tamura (M4 SOPMOD II), along with a few more. Those interested can keep track of various information about the anime from the MAL site.
