Maaya Uchida will play Haruka Momochi, the fastest female warrior on the school's elite unit
The new cast additions are both reprising their roles from the earlier drama CD version. They will attend the "TV Anime Seiken Tsukai no World Break Production Unveiling" that Niconico Live will stream live on Monday at 10:00 p.m. (8:00 a.m. EST). The event will announce the opening and ending theme songs.
Akamitsu Awamura's "campus sword & sorcery" light novel series is set in a private high school that brings together "saviors," youths with awakened memories from past lives. Some of them are Shirogane who fight enemies with weapons and techniques gleaned from the Puraana powers from their own bodies. Others are Kuroma who wipe out enemies, with magic to manipulate the Maana powers that surpass physics. A boy named Moroha Haimura enrolls in this school. He is the first person in history with past lives of both Shirogane and Kuroma.
The cast from the original drama CD will return in the anime and appear at Monday's event:
Ayana Taketatsu as Satsuki Ranjō, whose past life was the sister princess of Moroha's Shirogane past life
Aoi Yūki as Shizuno Urushibara, whose past life was a witch who stood by the side of Moroha's Kuroma past life
Takayuki Inagaki will direct the anime at diomedéa (Gingitsune, My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) with Masakazu Ishikawa (Campione!, Kodomo no Jikan) is adapting refeia's original character designs for the series. Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Gingitsune, Comic Party) will handle series composition.
SoftBank Creative's GA Bunko imprint launched the light novel series in 2012 with illustrations by refeia (Koiken! ~ Watashi-tachi Anime ni Natchatta! ~). A manga adaptation will run in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine.
