All: Goodbye to this reality!
Daahara: Welcome to the life redo tour!
Narrator: Thirty young men and women come together, heading toward their goal of the legendary village Nanakimura.
Narrator: We will become missing people, and redo our lives in Nanakimura. We'll be separated from all our obligations, and just like the name of the tour implies, we'll redo our lives!
Narrator: The location they arrived at was an abandoned settlement that still has traces of being lived in. What is the truth of Nanakimura that is pushed upon the 31 people!? The curtain on an anime with thrilling twists that won't let you miss a single episode is raised.
The new cast members are:
Shun Horie (Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation's Seiya Urisaka) as 18-year-old part-timer Hell Fire (Jigoku no Gōka). He is a dreamer who is sick of his lukewarm daily life in the current era, and possesses many survival skills.

Tarusuke Shingaki (Noblesse: Awakening's Cadis Etrama di Raizel) as 25-year-old shop manager Toriyasu. He was recently promoted to manage the shop where he works, but he got involved in the foreign exchange market and went into debt.
Tarusuke Shingaki as 27-year-old NEET Dozaemon. He has a good personality, but he eats a lot and is bad at everything.

Sayaka Nakaya (Magical Somera-chan's Somera Nonomoto) as 25-year-old aspiring singer-songwriter Naana. She dreams of becoming a singer-songwriter and continues to sing to her own accompaniment on the road.
Junji Majima as 17-year-old rapper Yottsun. He is excessively confident and dreams of making it big. Although he is easy to make fun of, he is a good guy at heart.

Previously-announced cast includes:
Kōdai Sakai (Pupa's Yuuhei Arita) as 16-year-old student Mitsumune. His grades are excellent but he doesn't boast about it, and he easily trusts even-tempered people.
Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Dagashi Kashi's Tō Endō, Free!'s Makoto Tachibana) as 25-year-old programmer Valkana. He caused an uproar by leaking information for the company he was contracted with, but the entire incident was blamed on someone else.

Konomi Tada (Girls und Panzer's Karina Sakaguchi) as Nanko, a 17-year-old great detective whose perceptions and reactions are a little different from those around her, but she conceals a lot of talent.
The website describes the story:
30 young men and women who came together on a shady bus tour. The tour's destination: an illusive, possibly nonexistent village called Nanakimura. In Nanakimura, one can lead a utopian existence, free of the world's obstacles … or so it was rumored, like an urban legend.
"In despair over the real world ... wanting to escape the tedious daily life … wanting to restart your life from scratch…"
The bus headed deep into the mountains, carrying 30 people each harboring their own expectations and wounds in their hearts…
And so, the place these 30 arrived at, was an uninhabited village with the lingering faint scents of life, even though it was falling apart.
What is the truth of Nanakimura facing the 30? You can't miss even one episode!
The anime will premiere on WOWOW on April 1 at 11:30 p.m., before premiering on MBS, TBS, and CBC on April 8, and on BS-TBS, Video Pass, and J:COM On Demand on April 9. The series will air on MBS's "Animeism" programming block.

Mari Okada (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, The Anthem of the Heart, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) is serving as series script supervisor, Naomi Ide (Kan Colle) is designing the characters, and Mizushima is personally directing the sound at Studio Mausu.
