■ New Trailer Cuts
What terrible fate awaits them, and what secrets remain hidden within this world?
The war was fought and won. Life went on.
After saving the world aboard the giant tank Taranis, the children return home to live out their lives in peace.
Until one day… Half their number become trapped within the Taranis as it goes on a rampage, leaving atrocity and strife in its wake.
The children and their new friend Vanilla, climb aboard their erstwhile foe, the Tarascus, and give chase to save their captive friends.
The tragedy that awaits may lead them down a path of revenge…
Malt Marzipan (voiced by Ayumu Murase)
“I’ll make you regret ever being born!”
- Age: 13
The eldest of the group of children from Petit Mona. The arduous conflict a year past granted him a sober maturity. By the same token, he now finds himself in the world-weary pitfall of jaded cynicism.
Mei Marzipan (voiced by Hina Kino)
“I can do anything!”
- Age: 5
Malt’s younger sister. Mei can’t wait to grow up and help everyone just like Hanna, who she views as a sister. She cherishes the hat Malt gave to her.

“I want to be a doctor someday so I can help people…”
- Age: 13
Malt’s childhood friend. She helps around the house while studying to become a doctor with the aim of saving as many lives as possible. She’s always will- ing to make sacrifices for the good of others.
Kyle Bavarois (voiced by Sachi Kokuryu)
“Man, it feels like a bad dream being in here.
- Age: 12
Following the arduous battle of the previous year, Kyle has since learned the importance of being part of the team-he’s much more open than he used to be. He still sees Malt as his rival.
Boron Brioche (voiced by Shinnosuke Tokudome)
“It’s lots more fun when everyone’s together, huh?”
- Age: 11
After surviving many fierce battles, Boron is a crybaby no longer-though his kind and gentle heart remains intact. Now he aims to curb his overindulgence in culinary fare.
Socks Million (voiced by Miyu Tomita)
“What a marvelous piece of machinery!”
- Age: 11
Socks uses the engineering knowledge he’s gained through studying the Taranis to hone his unique craft as an inventor. His current interests lie in Berman’s airship technology.
Vanilla Muscat (voiced by Mami Fujita)
“I’m Vanilla. Nice to meet you all.”
- Age: 11
The President’s youngest daughter. Due to her upbringing, she is well-educated, well-behaved, and always speaks in a polite manner. She can be a bit impetuous and hard-headed at times, which she considers a personal failing.
