Arknights Anime Story
The first season of Arknights Animation, titled Prelude to Dawn, is set in a world where the discovery of Originium, a black crystalline mineral, has propelled technological advancements. Originium’s potent energy has granted individuals abilities akin to magic called Arts, leading to significant progress. However, Originium usage carries a risk—Oripathy, an incurable and highly contagious disease. Catastrophes, natural disasters caused by Originium, are often linked to its presence. Those infected face harsh discrimination, fostering a rebellion called Reunion, which further exacerbates the catastrophic events. Rhodes Island, a paramilitary pharmaceutical organization, aims to treat the infected and uninfected equally and seeks a cure for Oripathy. Yet, the project’s leader, known as the Doctor, grapples with amnesia, hindering a potential solution.
The upcoming second season, “Arknights: Perish in Frost,” set to air in October 2023, continues the narrative. Terra, the world’s land, experiences unexplained irregular natural disasters. In response, people opt for living in mobile cities to escape these calamities. The remnants of Originium at Catastrophe sites have propelled civilization due to their immense energy. However, they have also brought Oripathy, an incurable disease. The infected, whose bodies crystallize gradually, become sources of infection upon death. Many countries subject the infected to persecution, segregation, and forced labor. Those oppressed by these governments initiate a rebellion. Rhodes Island, a pharmaceutical company focused on Oripathy cure research, takes up arms, aiming to liberate people from the clutches of this disease.
