"GRISAIA: Phantom Trigger" Announced for Spring Release
The troubled halls of Mihama Academy won’t be staying empty forever — get ready to meet more gritty, gorgeous girls from the world of Grisaia when GRISAIA: Phantom Trigger launches this spring!
The official site teases two volumes being released in Spring 2017. Akio Watanabe and Ryuta Fujisaki return to the series as artist and writer, respectively, but things are slightly different at the school now.
Until now, the game series has focused on the lives of CIRS agent Yuuji Kazami and the five disturbed girls who made up the entire population of Mihama Academy. With its original purpose no longer an issue, Mihama has been converted into a specialist training school for gunmen. Or, rather, gun-girls. They’ll be going on to work for SORD, the new super-secret branch of what used to be CIRS.
The official site has already released a short trailer featuring some of the characters and some new music:
The site also gives profiles of a few of the characters we’ll be meeting:
Haruto, a former CIRS agent who now serves as a tactical instructor at Mihama Academy;
Rena, a loyal and lively biker enlisted to shoot on Haruto’s behalf;
Tohka, a German/American “classic tsundere”;
Chris, a meek explosives specialist who turns scary when angered;
Murasaki, a self-proclaimed “Russian ninja”;
and Shiori, the school’s new cheerful but accident-prone homeroom teacher.
Volumes 1 and 2 of GRISAIA: Phantom Trigger will be released simultaneously next spring.
