New Combatants Will Be Dispatched! key visual shows off show’s quirky characters

A new Combatants Will Be Dispatched! key visual was released on the anime’s official Twitter account today.

The key visual features Roku-Gou, Alice, Snow, Grimm and Rose, with Roku-Gou looking shocked at something one or all of the girls are doing.

The Combatants Will Be Dispatched! anime is based on the light novel series by written by Natsume Akatsuki and illustrated by Kakao Lanthanum.

The English language version of the series is being published by Yen Press.

They have already released five volumes with volume 6 of the Combatants Will Be Dispatched! light novel series due to be published in the west on July 20th, 2021.

The series follows employees of the evil Kisaragi Corporation as they head to an alien planet.

Yen Press describes the story like this:

Always bring a gun to a sword fight!

With world domination nearly in their grasp, the Supreme Leaders of the Kisaragi Corporation–an underground criminal group turned evil megacorp–have decided to try their hands at interstellar conquest.

A quick dice roll nominates their chief operative, Combat Agent Six (aka Roku-Gou), to be the one to explore an alien planet…and the first thing he does when he gets there is change the sacred incantation for a holy ritual to the most embarrassing thing he can think of.

But evil deeds are business as usual for Kisaragi operatives, so if Six wants a promotion and a raise, he’ll have to work much harder than that! For starters, he’ll have to do something about the other group of villains on the planet, who are calling themselves the “Demon Lord’s Army” or whatever. After all, this world doesn’t need two evil organizations!
