The show will star:
Yasuyuki Kase (Naruto's Kankurou, Appleseed: Ex Machina's Yoshitsune) as Sōhei Saikawa, an associate professor of architecture at National Nagano University. He has gained the good will of Moe, but he doesn't particularly care about her. He is extremely intelligent, he has detached himself from the world, and he doesn't care at all about fashion. He loves coffee and cigarettes, but he hates watermelon, red beans, and soybean flower.
Atsumi Tanezaki (Monster Musume's Lilith, Terror in Resonance's Lisa Mishima) as Moe Nishinosono, the daughter of Sōhei's mentor, and a first year student in the architecture department of National Nagano University. She is a beautiful young woman from a high-class family. She has excellent insight, powers of observation, and calculation skills, but sometimes her thoughts jump to extreme conclusions. She loves the sound of car engines and mystery novels. She hates dried shiitake mushrooms, but because she believes they are good for anemia, she enduringly eats them every day.
Ibuki Kido (Sky Wizards Academy's Christina, OniAi's Akiko) as Shiki Magata, a genius programmer who was accused of killing her parents when she was 14, but she was found innocent due to her psychological condition. She lives in isolation at a private research lab on a remote island.
Kana-Boon (Naruto Shippuden, Boruto -Naruto the Movie-) is performing the opening theme song "talking." Scenario Art is performing the ending theme song "Nana Hitsuji."
The anime will premiere on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block on October 8.
Mamoru Kanbe (Elfen Lied, I''s Pure) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures (The [email protected], Persona 4 the Golden Animation). Toshiya Ono (Gatchaman Crowds, tsuritama) is in charge of series composition. Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Fate/stay night) is composing the music and Inio Asano (Solanin, Nijigahara Holograph) is drawing the original character designs.
Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs.
The story of the original Subete ga F ni Naru novel revolves around Sōhei Saikawa, a member of the Saikawa Research Lab. He goes on a vacation held by the lab, and Moe Nishinosono, the daughter of his mentor, joins the group on their vacation despite not being a part of the lab. There, the two end up finding a corpse. The two work together to solve the mysteries of what becomes a serial murder case.
The 1996 novel is the first installment in Hiroshi Mori's S&M series of novels. A live-action television drama adaptation of the novel aired from October to December last year on the Fuji TV channel.
