Anime fans outside Japan may not have had the chance to play most Japanese social games, but we’re still lucky because some of these games get adapted into anime. One of them is Zettai Bouei Leviathan (Total Defense Leviathan) by GREE. It has been announced that a TV anime adaptation of this social game will be produced by Gonzo.
GREE is known for its social games released in the iOS and Android platforms. Previously, its mobile game, Tanken Driland, was adapted into anime by Toei. It was also announced that GREE’s creature-raiser game Odoriko Clinoppe (Dancer Clinoppe) will receive an anime adaptation.
GREE’s upcoming card battle game Zettai Bouei Leviathan is set in Aquafall, a mythical world where there is an abundance of water and green landscapes. The creatures living in this world are dragons and fairies. Soon, all living beings are threatened by evil entities from meteorites. Syrup, a fairy from Aquafall, forms the Aquafall Defence Force and recruits Leviathan, Bahamut and Jörmungandr, three girls hailing from the dragon clan.
