On adapting the source material, Sori said, "I want to create a style that follows the original manga as much as possible. The cast is entirely Japanese, but the cultural background is Europe. However, it's a style that doesn't represent a specific race or country." Regarding the faithfulness of the adaptation, which has characters of non-Japanese ethnicity, the director said, "There will never be a scene in which a character says something that would identify him/her as Japanese."


Well, at the very least, it sounds like thought about this issue quite a bit.

All actors are cosplayers to some degree.

From the small piece they gave us, I think it is too early to be casting aspersions on the acting.

Maybe they should've use Foreign extras instead like they did it with Thermae Romae and a lot of Bollywood movies too!
