Anime is based on a mobile game

“Arknights: Prelude to Dawn” is based on a mobile game of the same name, which was first released by Studio Montagne and Hypergryph in China in May 2019. Yostar then made the game available worldwide in January 2020. Already in 2019, “Arknights” inspired several animated web videos as well as a nine-minute short video titled “Holy Knight Light.”

Arknights: Prelude to Dawn Storyline

Terra is struck by rare but devastating disasters. As a result, humans are forced to live in nomadic cities. The catastrophes produce a valuable resource in the form of the rare and energy-rich mineral “Originium”. However, the handling of the mineral is not completely harmless. Because if one exposes himself to the “Originium” for a longer time, then a disease develops – “Oripathy”.

A roving medical organization “Rhodes Island” offers the often shunned infected a helping hand and place where they can feel safe. However, the association has often had to carry out ad hoc paramilitary actions against the “Reunion Movement”, a terrorist organization that violently attacks governments that oppress the infected.
