The official website for the the anime adaptation of Tomonori Inoue's Coppelion science-fiction military action manga updated with a promotional video, additional cast, and character designs on Saturday. Musical duo Angela will perform the series' opening and ending theme songs.
The series stars:
Haruka Tomatsu as Ibara Naruse
Kana Hanazawa as Aoi Fukasaku
Satomi Akesaka as Taeko Nomura
Kenichi Suzumura as Haruto Kurosawa
Yui Horie as Kanon Ozu

The story is set in 2036, after radioactive contamination from a nuclear accident has put Tokyo under a blockade. Three high school girls have been sent to this dead city. Thanks to genetic engineering, the three girls have been impervious to radioactivity since birth. They form a special forces unit, codenamed "Coppelion," in the 3rd Division of Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force.
The manga began in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine in 2008 and moved to Monthly Young Magazine last year. Weekly Young Magazine announced a Coppelion television anime in 2010, but the plans were put on hold after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster.
The anime will premiere this Fall on the BS-11 channel and other venues.
