Bandai has released the first promo for their upcoming anime Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, and the tie-in game toys.
While the video is in Japanese, Anime News Network has provided a translation of the content:
Toei Animation is producing Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, Marvel's first television anime series for Japanese boys, for Walt Disney Japan to air throughout Japan. Bandai is responsible for turning the characters into merchandising. The series is aimed at male boys ages 6-12.
In the anime, portable capturing devices known as "DISKs" were developed to capture evil villains. However, thanks to Loki's machinations, both villains and heroes are sealed up in these Disks and scattered around the world. Amid the chaos, five youths obtained the power to restore these DISK-sealed heroes through a program called "Biocode." These youths received five DISKs that Spider-Man, who narrowly escaped being sealed himself, retrieved. Thus, these five can restore Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Wasp - the Avengers!
The definition of DISK is explained and the cast is introduced in the video as:
"DISK: Digital Identity Securement Kit. Those who possess the Biocode can summon heroes or villains sealed in the DISKs and fight with them."
Akira: Let's go! Iron Man, D-Smash!
Text: Fight together! The most powerful, and greatest friends
Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers will premiere on April 2nd, 2014 on TV Tokyo and five other affiliates.
