Adaptation of Shiden Kanzaki's novel to premiere in April with Yuuki Kaji, Rina Hidaka

The official website for the anime adaptation of Shiden Kanzaki's Black Bullet novel began streaming the first promotional video on Saturday. The series is slated to premiere in April.

The website also updated with images of the main characters:

The series will star Aoi Yuki as Kohina Hiruko, Yui Horie as Kisara Tendō, Yuko Kaida as Sumire Muroto, Tomoyo Kurosawa as Tina Sprout, and Aki Toyosaki as Seitenshi. The cast members join lead voice actors Yuuki Kaji as Rentarō Satomi, Rina Hidaka as Enju Aihara, and Rikiya Koyama as Kagetane Hiruko.

Masayuki Kojima (Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, The Piano Forest) is directing the anime at Kinema Citrus from scripts by Tatsuhiko Urahata (Saki Episode of Side A, Cardfight!! Vanguard). Chiho Umishima is designing the characters, while Shiro Sagisu (Bleach, Neon Genesis Evangelion) is composing the music. Yō Yamada (The Garden of Words, Penguindrum) is serving as sound director.

The story of Black Bullet revolves around the high-schooler Rentarō, a young man who has a superior, mysterious ability in an age of humans that fight against the Gastrea, a race of viral parasites. The story describes Rentarō's actions in a not too distant future.

Kanzaki began publishing the story under the Dengeki Bunko label with illustrations by Saki Ukai in July 2011, and ASCII Media Works shipped the sixth volume of the light novel series in October.
