posted on by Karen Ressler

The official website for the anime adaptation of the Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash (Hai to Gensō no Grimgar or Grimgar le Monde des cendres et de fantaisie) light novel series revealed the main cast and character designs on Wednesday. The cast includes:

Yoshimasa Hosoya (Attack on Titan's Reiner Braun) as Haruhiro


Hiroyuki Yoshino (Rage of Bahamut Genesis's Favaro Leone) as Ranta


Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club's Haruka Nanase) as Manato


Fukushi Ochiai (Ace of Diamond: Second Season's Kōji Tamaki) as Moguzo


Mikako Komatsu (K's Neko) as Yume


Haruka Terui (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero's Yūna Yūki) as Shihoru

Ryosuke Nakamura (Aiura director and scriptwriter, Mōryō no Hako director) is directing and writing the scripts at A-1 Pictures. Mieko Hosoi (Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū, Psychic School Wars) is designing the characters.

The official website describes the series as follows:

Living, isn't easy.
When Haruhito awakens, he's in the dark.
He doesn't know where he is, why is he here, and where he came from.
Around him there are several men and women who have the same circumstances.
Together, they advance forward away from the darkness, and a world they've never seen before called "Grimgar" spreads out before them.
Memories, money, special powers — This is the reality we who have none of those things have obtained.

The "youth x fantasy" series follows Haruhiro and his companions as they suddenly find themselves in a "game-like world" called Grimgar and must form a party, cooperate, and learn new skills to survive the harsh environment together.

Author Ao Jūmonji and illustrator Eiri Shirai launched the light novel series in 2013, and Overlap Bunko published the sixth novel on October 25. Mutsumi Okubashi launched a manga adaptation in Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine in April.
