Aki Toyosaki, Mikako Komatsu, Inori Minase, Kaito Ishikawa join cast for October anime by Kanon writer

The official website for the Sora no Method (Method of the Heavens) television anime updated on Sunday, and began streaming a second promotional video for the series. The video features the anime's image song, “North Method,” by Larval Stage Planning. The end of the video lists the anime as being planned to premiere in October.

    Nonoka: Nice to meet you! I'm Nonoka Komiya. I look forward to working with you!
    Nonoka: After returning to this town after seven years, I'm connecting... My feelings, my memories, and everything that makes up me.
    Yuzuki: I'm Yuzuki Mizusaka! Nice to meet you!
    Yuzuki: I'm against that disk! Objection of disk!!
    Koharu: I'm Koharu Shiihara. Everyone, it's nice to meet you. If you're ever looking to purchase souvenirs, please come to the Shiihara Main Shop. The greeter girl is waiting for you. Ah, but that's me.
    Shione: I'm Shione Togawa. Nice to meet you.
    Shione: I'm waiting alone. Until that time comes... I keep believing.
    Noel: Everyone! Nice to meet you! I'm Noel! Noel was waiting here since so long ago! For Nonoka, for everyone!
    Nonoka: Memories of that winter. A single miracle in which the girls' wishes came true. From that day... From that time, this town's scenery... In this town's sky, the disk was always with us.

The video introduces the new voice cast:

Aki Toyosaki (Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara, K-ON!) as Yuzuki Mizusaka, a third-year in middle school who lives in the "Town of the Disk." She hates the disk, which has already become normalcy in the town. Alone, she is trying to run the disk out of town.

Mikako Komatsu (K: Missing Kings, Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live) as Shione Togawa, a classmate of Yuzuki, Koharu, and Sōta. She cuts off communication with others by always putting on headphones. Currently, she lives alone in another town, separate from her parents.

Inori Minase (Is the order a rabbit?, Love Lab) as Noel, a girl whose stature suggests she is around elementary school age, but her true age is unknown. She has an innocent and bright personality, and is active. However, she is shrouded in mystery.

Kaito Ishikawa (Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet) as Sōta Mizusaka, Yuzuki's elder twin brother. He is Koharu's childhood friend, but since the disk appeared, he and his sister have been fighting like dogs and cats. He is currently caught up in something.

The new cast will join:

Shiina Natsukawa (THE IDOLM@STER MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e!, Witch Craft Works) as Nonoka Komiya, who has returned to the "Town of the Disk" after seven years from Tokyo due to her father's work. A third-year in middle school, she is quite the push-over, but she can also be someone who acts before thinking.

Haruka Yoshimura (Riddle Story of Devil, The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls) as Koharu Shiihara, a third-year in middle school. She is the childhood friend of the Mizusaka twins, and still dotes on them. She has a spacey and quiet personality, and calls herself her family's souvenir shop's "greeter girl."

Masayuki Sakoi will direct the series at the new Studio 3Hz off of an original concept and script by Naoki Hisaya (Kanon). The illustrator circle QP:flapper (MM!) is designing the characters.

The website is also displaying a new key visual for the series:
