What is Soya’s reason for fighting that is locked deep within his memories? (Synopsis from planet-with.com, Translated by Anime News Network)
Planet With is a Japanese multimedia project, conceptualized by Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer creator Satoshi Mizukami, which first started in Shonen Gahosha’s Young King OURs magazine last April.
The upcoming anime will be directed by Youhei Suzuki, who previously worked on the romantic comedy anime The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat., while Alice & Zoroku character designer Kazunori Iwakura will handle the same role in the series. Mizukami will handle the series composition.
The Japanese voice cast will be lead by Atsushi Abe (“Toma Kamijo”, A Certain Magical Index) as “Soya Kuroi”, Shiori Izawa (“Nanachi”, Made in Abyss) as “Ginko Kuroi”, and Sayaka Harada (“Watermelon Tourmaline”, Land of Lustrous) as “Nozomi Takamagahara”.
This will be the anime channel’s first simulcast title in the Summer 2018 season, in addition to the continuation of Persona5 the Animation.
More titles are expected to be announced in the coming days.
