You can be evil or you can be alive… but you can’t be both. At least not in this series.
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they will stream Evil or Live as part of their Fall simulcast lineup. The series will launch on October 10 at 10:45AM Pacific (1:45PM Eastern) for users in all regions outside of Asia.
Evil or Live is based on Li Xiaonan’s Lixiang Jinqu (Ideal Restricted Area). Dong Yi is directing title at Animation Company Emon, with Lin Zhengzhe serving as Art Director. Mi Chong and Shantian Gaifan will Executive produce, while Chen Weiwen and Zhang Yuan are attached as producers.
The confirmed voice cast includes:
- Hibiki: Shinichiroh Ueda
- Shiori: Chika Anzai
- Shin: Kouki Uchiyama
Crunchyroll describes the title as:
In this modern society, a new kind of “illness” is striking young boys and girls. Loneliness, disbelief and outrage are pushing this generation to become more and more attached to the Internet and technology. Experts call this symptom “Net Addiction”. To prevent this, a Rehabilitation Facility has been set up to “Lead the young generation back onto the right path.” Enrolled to treat his addiction, Hibiki has no idea that this Rehabilitation Facility is nothing more than a prison. In this place escape is not permitted, how will Hibiki challenge despair in this hell?’
