Inou Battle Within Everyday Life Anime's 1st Promo Previews Cast

posted on by Sarah Nelkin

The official website for the TV anime adaptation of Kota Nozomi's Inou Battle Within Everyday Life (Inō-Battle wa Nichijō-kei no Naka de/INOU-Battle in the Usually Daze.) light novel series updated on Tuesday, and began streaming the first promotional video for the series.

July: Can you swear to God and say that? That unusual powers don't exist in this world!? That a dark power will never exist in my right arm!?
Text: A battle with the world on the line between people with unusual powers, now...
Text: Is not starting!?
July: There is no need to worry. If things get serious, my dark alternate personality will lend me power.
Tomoyo: I can't believe you never get tired of this chū-ni (someone lost in their anime-inspired fantasies) stuff, day after day after day!!
Hatoko: Haha, then I guess my second name could be Noritsukkomi (someone who goes along with a joke and then makes a jab at the end) Hatoko, huh?
Sayumi: This has gotten quite intere- ...I mean, troubling.
Chifuyu: It's all right. Andō being weird is just the same old same old.
Text: They have unusual powers, but it's an everyday life-style anime.
Text: Unusual powers x Everyday life – A new kind of a romantic comedy!
July: Now then, let's start the beginning of the end!!

The website is also announcing that the following cast will join the series:

The website has also added an updated staff list with the following additions:

The TV anime will premiere in October.

The new cast will join:

Nobuhiko Okamoto (Blue Exorcist) as July Andō. He has the power of "dark and dark," which allows him to create black flames using the heat from an ordinary hot water bottle.

Haruka Yamazaki (High School DxD New, Hayate the Combat Butler! Cuties) as Tomoyo Kanzaki. Her ability is "closed clock," which gives her command over time.

Saori Hayami (The irregular at magic high school, Oreimo) as Hatoko Kushikawa. Her ability is "over element," which enables her to control all aspects of the natural world.

Risa Taneda (Beyond the Boundary) as Sayumi Takanashi. Her ability is "root of origin," which returns things to their original form.

Nanami Yamashita (Wake Up, Girls!) as Chifuyu Himeki. Her ability is "world create," which allows her to create matter and space at will.

Masanori Takahashi will direct the series at animation Studio Trigger with series composition by Masahiko Otsuka. Satoshi Yamaguchi will be designing the characters for the anime, and Elements Garden will be providing the music.

In the original novel series' story, the five members of the literature club awakened with extraordinary powers half a year ago. Although the members expected to be thrown into a world of super-powered battles (inō-battle) at their school, their normal daily routine continued. No secret organizations bent on World Destruction, no super-powered wars, no braves or demon kings.

However, the members still look forward to the possibilities of adventure, and continued to believe that with each day, they were getting ever closer to those days of fantasy. Their days of romantic comedy and battles with extraordinary powers begin!

Nozomi started the light novel series with illustrations by The Devil Is a Part-Timer! artist Oniku (029) in 2012. He had made his debut earlier with 3rd GA Bunko Prize finalist Happy Death Day. Kōsuke Kurose launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine last September, and Kadokawa published the first compiled volume in March.
