The March issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's magazine also revealed the cast on Friday:
Yasuaki Takumi as Tsukasa Mizugaki, a new employee at SA Corp.'s terminal service who joined after graduating high school. However, he does not know much about his job.
Sora Amamiya as Isla, a Giftia who doesn't show much emotion. She starts working in a team with Tsukasa, and supports him, since he does not know much. It is said that Giftias only have approximately nine years to function.
Chinatsu Akasaki as Michiru Kinushima, Tsukasa's senior at work. Although they have no age difference, she teaches Tsukasa as his work superior.
Sayuri Yahagi as Zack, a Giftia paired with Michiru. His appearance is that of a high-class young boy, but he has the power to complete all work smoothly.
Megumi Toyoguchi as Kazuki Kuwanomi, Tsukasa's direct superior at work.
Satoshi Hino as Constance, a Giftia modeled as an agreeable young man that works for Kazuki. Has an obviously gentle personality, and performs everything smoothly. Supports Kazuki.
Kenjiro Tsuda as Yasutaka Hanada, a veteran employee that has 10 years experience in the terminal service. His ease at conversation, casual attitude, and lack of motivation belie his age and years of employment.
Aimi Terakawa as Sherry, a Giftia modeled as a career woman, partnered with Yasutaka. Serious to a fault, and has a rigid rapport with Yasutaka.
Nobuo Tobita as Takao Yamanobe, the section manager of Terminal Service 1 and Tsukasa's team. A stereotypical salaryman who is content with peace and quiet, and loathe to go against his superior's orders. Originally worked in sales, so has no actual field experience with the terminal service.
Sumire Uesaka as Eru Miru, a novice engineer with two years in the Giftia maintenance team. She is assigned to Isla and Zack, and acts overly familiar and talkative to anyone. An android geek.

This story takes place in a future not too far away when androids that look exactly like humans begin to spread across the world.
