Before Luluco, there was Kiznaiver.

Earlier today, the official Kiznaiver anime website updated with several new cast, and broadcast updates, as well as information on the show’s theme songs.

The show’s cast will add the following members:

  • Tsuguhito Yuta: Nobunaga Shimazaki
  • Honoka Maki: Rina Satou
  • Yoshiharu Hisomu: Kōtarō Nishiyama

The new three players join previously confirmed cast, which includes:

  • Noriko Sonozaki: Hibiku Yamamura
  • Katsuhira Agata: Yuuki Kaji
  • Yoshiharu Hisomu: Kōtarō Nishiyama
  • Nico Niyama: Misaki Kuno
  • Tsuguhito Yuta: Nobunaga Shimazaki
  • Hajime Tenga: Tomoaki Maeno
  • Chidori Takashiro: Yuka Terasaki

Boom Boom Satellites will perform the show’s opening, while Sangatsu no Phantasia performs the ending. Previously, Boom Boom Satellites cancelled its scheduled concerts due to vocalist & guitarist Michiyuki Kawashima’s health. Kawashima suffered a relapse of a brain tumor. He announced a month later, though, that he was feeling well and working on a new piece.

Kiznaiver will air on Tokyo MX, ABC Asahi, and BS11. Though the première is set for April, the show’s staff will host an advance screening of the first two episodes on March 27.

To promote the news, the show’s staff released a new key visual, which you can check out below.

Kiznaiver VIsual 002 - 20160209Kiznaiver is being directed by Hiroshi Kobayashi at studio Trigger. Mari Okada (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) will write the show’s script, while Mai Yoneyama (Hill Climb Girl) provides character designs.

Kiznaiver is set in fictional Japanese city Sugomori City, which is built on reclaimed land. While it was once a bustling metropolis, the settlement is seeing its population dwindle as years go by.

Through Sugomori City, the Kizuna System maintains order. It’s an incomplete process, which ultimately aims to create world peace by linking those connected to it via their wounds. When these folks, known as Kiznaivers, are wounded, the system divides the pain of the injury among the entire Kiznaiver population.
Katsuhira is the latest Kiznaiver. After receiving the news from classmate Sonosaki, Katsuhira finds himself in a situation that will set him apart from his peers.
