Accel World, Sword Art Online Drama CD's Cast Listed

posted on by Egan Loo

Dengekiya, the character goods shopping site for ASCII Media Works' Dengeki imprint, began offering an Accel World + Sword Art Online drama CD, and the listing includes the main voice casts for both projects:

Accel World
Haruyuki: Yūki Kaji
Kuroyukihime: Sachika Misawa
Chiyuri: Aki Toyosaki

Sword Art Online
Kirito: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
Asuna: Haruka Tomatsu
Riifa: Ayana Taketatsu
Yui: Kanae Itō

The listing does not specify if the drama CD's cast members will also reprise their roles for the anime adaptations that were revealed in October. The CD will ship in late March. Reki Kawahara wrote the original light novels for both Accel World and Sword Art Online.

The "future teen" story of Accel World revolves around a bullied middle school boy named Haruyuki. One autumn day in 2046, he has an encounter with Kuroyukihime, the prettiest girl in his school, that changes his life. Through a mysterious piece of software from Kuroyukihime, Haruyuki learns of the existence of the virtual "Accel World." In that moment, the lowest of the "school caste" becomes "Burst Linker," a knight defending a princess.

The story of Sword Art Online revolves around a boy named Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya who enters a virtual-reality, massively multi-player online (MMO) world called "Sword Art Online." There is no escape from this world unless the player clears the game, but "game over" means the death of the player.
