posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Media Factory began streaming the second promotional video for the television anime adaptation of Reiji Kaito's Unbreakable Machine-Doll (Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai) light novel series on Friday. The promo features Hitomi Harada as the title's machine doll, Yaya.
Reprising their roles from the drama CD, Hiro Shimono will play Raishin Akabane, a boy puppeteer who travels from Japan to study at the highest institution for "Machinart" (the craft of making automatons). Hitomi Harada will play Yaya, Raishin's female automaton who accompanies him on his trip. Also reprising their roles are Megumi Takamoto as Charlotte Blue, Jouji Nakata as Sigmund, Kana Asumi as Frey, and Nobuhiko Okamoto as Loki.
Kinji Yoshimoto (Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin, Genshiken 2) will be directing the anime at animation studio Lerche from scripts by Yuuko Kakihara (Persona 4: The Animation, Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu). Atsuko Watanabe (The Everyday Tales of a Cat God, Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu) will be handling the character designs, and Genco will be producing the anime.
Kaito launched the light novel series with illustrations by LLO (Mushi-Uta, Oreshura) in 2009, and the 10th volume shipped in January. Hakaru Takagi launched a manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2010.
The anime will premiere in Japan this autumn.
