posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The main cast for Outbreak Company - Moeru Shinryakusha television anime was announced during the TBS Anime Festa 2013 event on Saturday. The series is based on Ichiro Sakaki's light novel series of the same name.
Suzuko Mimori will play he half-elf maid girl Myucel Foaran, Mai Fuchigami will play young empress Petralka Anne Eldant III, Maaya Uchida will play Minori Koganuma, and Sumire Uesaka will play Elbia Hanaiman. Mimori will also sing the series' opening theme "Yunibā Page." Shou Watanabe, who has previously worked with Claris and LiSA, is writing and composing the opening theme. Mai Fuchigami will sing the series' ending theme "Watashi no Hōsekibako."
Kei Oikawa (Minami-ke: Okaeri) is directing the series anime studio feel. Naruhisa Arakawa (Kingdom, MAOYU) is supervising the scripts and Takashi Mamezuka (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!) is designing the characters.
Outbreak Company's story centers around Shinichi Kano, a "thoroughbred class" otaku with a light novelist father and an erotic game artist mother. The NEET (not in education, employment, or training) high school dropout has no special talents except for his vast knowledge, opinions, and insight on moe.
Despite this, the Japanese government assigns Shinichi as a "moe" evangelist to the Holy Eldant Empire, a parallel world with an entrance through a thick forest of trees in the Mount Fuji area. In this fantasy world where dragons soar the skies, Shinichi forms a deep friendship with the half-elf maid girl Myucel and the beautiful young empress Petralka. Even as he deals with the threats of war between different factions, he worries that he himself is an invader to this wondrous land.
The anime will premiere this October on TBS and BS-TBS. Sakaki's writings already spawned several other anime such as Polyphonica, Scrapped Princess, and Strait Jacket.
Update: Shou Watanabe, not LiSA, is writing and composing the opening theme.
