Mai Nakahara to Lead Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita Cast
posted on by Egan Loo
The wraparound jacket band on the third reissued volume of Romeo Tanaka's Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita light novel series is revealing this week that Mai Nakahara (My-HiME, My-Otome, Please Twins) will lead the voice cast of the upcoming television anime series. The jacket band also confirmed that the anime will premiere this July.
The story is set several centuries into the slow decline of mankind. Earth has now become the realm of "fairies" — 10-centimeter-tall (about 4-inch-tall) creatures with remarkable intelligence. The unnamed human protagonist (played by Nakahara) of the story serves an important duty as the international arbitrator between the fairies and humans, and she returns to her former hometown of Kusunoki. She chose this job because she thought it was an easy job she can do, even when she is as old as her grandfather. However, she learns that her job is anything but simple when she meets the fairies.
Tōru Yamasaki was the original illustrator for the fantasy light novel series, however, Sunaho Tobe (Zettai Shonen) announced that she replaced Yamasaki in September. (Tobe's illustrations now appear in the reissued volumes.) The sixth light novel volume shipped last February. Another artist, Rei Neyuki, launched a manga version in Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine last year.
