The official website for the television anime adaptation of Kimihito Irie's Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi fantasy light novel series revealed additional cast members for the series on Friday. The additional cast members are as follows:

Kouki Uchiyama as Alis Color
Hirofumi Nojima as Yōki
Akeno Watanabe as Anna
Eiji Maruyama as Yūto
Hiroyuki Yoshino as Hikōtsu
Asami Imai as Taanya Swedgewood
Sayuri Hara as Volrath Faaren
Ai Kakuma as Mimiita Gedenburg & Memepo Gedenburg
Minami Takahashi as Run Sagittarius

Eri Kitamura (who is playing Dii Enjii Sutoratomittosu in the series) will perform the opening theme song and Mikako Komatsu (who is playing Urra Eureusu Hekumatika) will perform the ending theme song.

Aki Toyosaki and Daisuke Namikawa star in the series as Ai and Hanpunii Hanbaato, respectively. Other cast members include Yuko Goto, Mamiko Noto, Keiji Fujiwara, and Tetsuya Kakihara.

The first promotional video for the anime debuted at Anime Contents Expo last month.

Yuuji Kumazawa (Oda Nobuna no Yabō) is directing off scripts supervised by Tomoko Konparu (Kimi ni Todoke - From Me to You, NANA, Nodame Cantabile). Shinichi Miyamae designed the characters, while Studio Easter is producing the backgrounds. Satoshi Motoyama is serving as sound director, and Hiromi Mizutani (Hell Girl, Toriko, The Wallflower) is scoring the music courtesy of Starchild Records.

The fantasy is set 15 years after humans stopped being born and the dead stopped dying, since the world was abandoned by God. That left "Gravekeepers" with the unique task of giving the would-be dead peace. A girl named Ai is the only Gravekeeper in her village; she was born from a Gravekeeper mother and a human father 12 years ago. One day, a boy named Hanpunii Hanbaato appears and begins firing his pistol indiscriminately and setting the village on fire. Hanpunii confronts Ai with the shocking truth.

The anime will premiere in July. Irie launched the series in January of 2010 with illustrations by Shino, and the seventh volume shipped last April. Abaraheiki launched the manga adaptation of the series in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine in October of 2010, and the third volume shipped in November.
