Tomoyo Kurosawa plays virtual maid in anime running in winter & summer

The Active Raid: Special Public Security Fifth Division Third Mobile Assault Eighth Unit (Active Raid: Kidō Kyōshūshitsu Dai-Hakkei) television anime will run from January to March of next year, and then July to September. The anime's official website also announced that Tomoyo Kurosawa will voice Liko, a maid (pictured right) who can be installed in every digital device from smartphones to PCs.

The story is set in a part of Tokyo that has descended into a quagmire. It follows the Special Public Security Division Third Mobile Assault Eighth Unit — popularly called "The Eighth" — who don powered armor "Willware" exoskeletons to counter the rise in crime. Assistant inspector Asami Kazari is assigned to The Eighth with the task of assessing the unit's status and reporting it to her superiors. But her true goal is to rehabilitate this sloppy, haphazard, justice-less group.

The cast features:

Nobunaga Shimazaki as Takeru Kuroki, a lieutenant who uses the Strike Intercepter Willware

Takahiro Sakurai as Sōichirō Sena, a lieutenant who uses the Elf Sigma Willware

Ari Ozawa as Asami Kazari, a genius 19-year-old lieutenant

Masayo Kurata as Rin Yamabuki, the senior superintendent in charge of the Eighth Unit

Toru Ohkawa as Yasuharu Funasaka, the captain of the Eighth Unit

Saori Onishi as Madoka Amano, an operator

Kousuke Toriumi as "Kyōkai-san," a mechanic

  • Hikaru Midorikawa as Kōtaro Inagi
  • Sayaka Ohara as Eriko Kominato
  • Daiki Yamashita as Doc
