This latest trailer for the Bayonetta: Bloody Fate anime reassures that the series' cast of lovable goofballs/demons, which were largely absent in the first trailer, are along for the ride on Bayonetta's latest adventure through the land of spread-eagle backflips and hair dragons.
Jeanne, Luka, Rodin, Enzo and Cereza all return, sporting their poppin'-fresh new Japanese voices. Bayonetta herself will be voiced by Atsuko Tanaka, who is perhaps most well known for her smoky portrayal of Motoko Kusanagi in multiple entries in the Ghost in the Shell series. Jeanne's pipes reside within Mie Sonozaki of Strike Witches fame, who is also the voice of EVE in the Japanese version of WALL-E.
Bloody Fate is directed by Afro Samurai director Fuminori Kizaki, and is set to debut in select Japanese theaters on November 23. While there has still been no official word on a localized release for western territories, a small, disabled "English" link in the top right-hand corner of the official website does at least indicate production company Gonzo's awareness of international interest in the film.
