Daisuke Ono, Aya Endo join cast in director Eiji Suganuma & Manglobe's anime

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Touya Mikanagi's Karneval manga updated with the series' cast, staff, and a new piece of key visual art on Thursday. Hiro Shimono, Hiroshi Kamiya, and Mamoru Miyano are reprising their roles from the series' drama CDs.

The announced cast includes:

Hiro Shimono as Nai

Hiroshi Kamiya as Gareki!

Mamoru Miyano as ship fighter Yogi

Aya Endo as ship fighter Tsukumo

Daisuke Ono as ship captain Hirato

Yūichi Nakamura as ship fighter Jiki

Kōji Yusa as ship captain Tsukitachi

Daisuke Hirakawa as researcher Akari

The original manga follows Nai, a naïve boy searching for someone important to him, with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue. He encounters the pickpocket Gareki! when the two meet in a strange mansion. Soon they find themselves part of a setup, becoming wanted criminals by military security operatives. When all hope seems lost, the two are introduced to none other than the country's most powerful defense organization, "Circus."

Eiji Suganuma (Kodomo no Jikan, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ninja Cadets, Sasameki Koto) is directing the series at Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland, Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ergo Proxy) and Touko Machida (THE IDOLM@STER, Lucky Star, Amnesia) is handling the scripts. Toshie Kawamura (Yes! Precure 5, Smile Precure!, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director for the series.

An anime preview DVD is bundled with the manga's 10th volume, which shipped on Thursday. The series is slated to air next spring.
