Yuko Goto, Mamiko Noto, Keiji Fujiwara also cast in fantasy series based on Kimihito Irie's light novels

Japanese publisher Fujimi Shobo has revealed the main cast for the television anime adaptation of Kimihito Irie's Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi light novel series. The cast is as follows:

Aki Toyosaki as Ai
Daisuke Namikawa as Hanpunii Hanbaado
Yuko Goto as Hana
Mamiko Noto as Scar
Keiji Fujiwara as Yurii Sakuma Doebicchi

The fantasy is set 15 years after humans stopped being born and the dead stopped dying, since the world was abandoned by God. That left "Gravekeepers" with the unique task of giving the would-be dead peace. A girl named Ai is the only Gravekeeper in her village; she was born from a Gravekeeper mother and a human father 12 years ago. One day, a boy named Hanpunii Hanbaado appears and begins firing his pistol indiscriminately and setting the village on fire. Hanpunii confronts Ai with the shocking truth.

Irie launched the series in January of 2010 with illustrations by Shino, and the seventh volume shipped last April. Abaraheiki launched the manga adaptation of the series in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine in October of 2010, and the third volume shipped in November.

Anime Contents Expo will host an event for the series on March 31 that will include a talk with the cast (including Toyosaki and Noto) and director and a screening of a promotional video.
