In the distant future, humans have been pushed to the verge of extinction by the invasion of mysterious life-forms called the Gadoll, and were now forced to live inside the moving fortress Deca-dence as they desperately kept up resistance. Natsume, a girl who grew up with a dream of becoming a fighter, is assigned to work under the hard-nosed but apathetic armor-repairman Kaburagi, and finds herself spending her days swamped with endless routines of cleaning work. But one day, Natsume gets herself caught up in a battle with the Gadoll while on work, and what she witnesses is the sight of Kaburagi taking down one Gadoll soldier after another.

Opening Theme Song
Artist: Konomi Suzuki
This story is so cool, with the characters striving to live their life with a strong will of their own despite the harsh conditions they are placed in. This Opening Theme "Theater of Life" is all about the determination to take control of one’s own life, and about the moment of sensation in a life full of sweat. The song makes you feel like taking a big step forward in your life, and I am excited to loot for those characters with this cheering song!
Ending Theme Song
Artist: Kashitaro Ito
Ever since I was handed the early version of the storyboard and read it carefully, the plot of the story has hooked me so deeply and fascinated me so much. I think I was able to express things which are common in both the feelings of the characters in the story and some thoughts that have always been on my mind. I think this song adds some spice to the animation, so please enjoy until the end roll is all up.
It has been quite a while since I was last involved in an Original TV Animation Series! I have come to the mid-career point in my career as an Animation Director, but I am so excited to tackle this untried genre. For sure now, my hands are still full of cuts that I do not know how to go through with :-) "DECA-DENSE" is full of highlights, the drama unfolding in a world that is larger than life, not to mention the fights against big monsters and a gigantic moving fortress, too!! And this being an original story, there is so much more that I cannot yet tell you at this moment. Please follow the story and the drama to the very end! Thank you in advance for your support!!
It was while I was working on "The Saga of Tanya the Evil" TV series that we started talking about perhaps making an original story animation series with Director Tachikawa and KADOKAWA'S Producer Tanaka, and that, I think, was the very beginning of this project. Since this story was an original, we spent so much time going back and forth to build up the entire worldview of this drama, little by little with the help and support of various crew and staff members, and before you knew it, the project had become such a monster... How could it ever become this way? This animation series is the first original project from our studio "NUT", which I produced with our very reliable staff and crew. Hope that everyone watching this would enjoy!!
