Satisfy your craving for puppet action with a Thunderbolt Fantasy side story
Will it expand on Gui Niao's backstory?
The original Thunderbolt Fantasy came off as a wonderful surprise for me since I didn't expect an action puppet show to become one of my favorite series of 2016. As we wait for its second season to premiere, the people at Pili, Nitroplus and Goodsmile are bringing us a side story project called Thunderbolt Fantasy: Shoshi Ikken.
Unlike the original series, this piece is an adaptation of the Thunderbolt Fantasy: Toriken Koki Gaiden novel. On top of that, it'll feature a tale about Shang Bu Huan that Urobuchi wrote. From the looks of it, the project will let us witness the events that led to the Screaming Phoenix Killer wanting to kill Gui Niao.
Huan, Niao, and Phoenix Killer's voice actors are returning in Shoshi Ikken, with Isshin Chiba (.hack series' Silver Knight, Tekken series' Jin) voicing a new character called Tekkisen. Since the team brought us a teaser for the project, I'm looking forward to hearing about its premiere date. Hopefully, Crunchyroll will stream it in the future. That way, we could catch the whole series on one platform.
