Misaki Kuno, Ryota Ohsaka, Shōhei Kajikawa, others in Fall anime set in fantasy online game

The official NHK site for the Fall anime Log Horizon listed more of the voice cast on Monday:

Previously announced cast includes:

Emiri Katō (Hideyoshi Kinoshita in Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) as Akatsuki
Tomoaki Maeno (Yukina Ko in Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi) as Naotsugu
Jouji Nakata (Kirie Kotomine in Fate/Zero) as Nyanta
Daiki Yamashita (Rekka Shirogane in Gaist Crusher) as Tōya
Nao Tamura (Ayuko Uehara in Aiura) as minori
Tetsuya Kakihara (Camio in Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist) as Lundellhaus
Eriko Matsui as Isuzu

The story begins when 30,000 Japanese gamers are trapped in the fantasy online game world Elder Tale. What was once a "sword-and-sorcery world" is now the "real world." The main lead Shiroe attempts to survive with his old friend Naotsugu and the beautiful assassin Akatsuki.

The anime studio Satelight is producing the planned 25-episode series for airing on the public broadcaster NHK's E-Tele channel. Shinji Ishihira is directing the anime, and Toshizo Nemoto is charge of the series scripts. The anime will premiere on October 5.

Touno debuted his novel on the user-generated content site Shōsetsuka ni Narō in 2010. Motoya Matsu then launched his Log Horizon Gaiden: Honey Moon Logs manga adaptation in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Deneaki Daioh magazine last year. Kazuhiro Hara began serializing the main manga adaptation on Enterbrain's Famitsu Comic Clear website last year, and Koyuki began drawing another manga called Log Horizon - Nishikaze no Ryodan in Fujimi Shobo's Age Premium website last year also.
