Series based on manga by Future Diary creator premieres next Friday

Crunchyroll confirmed on Thursday that it will stream the anime adaptation of Sakae Esuno's Big Order manga as it airs in Japan. The stream will premiere worldwide outside of Asia on Friday, April 15 at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

The manga's story centers on an introverted high school student named Eiji Hoshimiya with a huge secret — he wished for the destruction of the world when he was younger. Fairies give certain people special powers called Orders. What Order Users can do with their power depends on their wishes. 10 years after the Great Destruction, Eiji struggles to come to terms with his immense power.

The anime's cast and staff are returning from the previous original anime Blu-ray Disc that shipped with the limited edition of the eighth volume on October 3. Nobuharu Kamanaka (episode director for BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Freezing, Robotics;Notes) is directing the series at studio Asread. Katsuhiko Takayama (The Future Diary, Aldnoah.Zero, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) is writing and overseeing the scripts, and Chika Kojima (chief animation director for The Future Diary) is serving as character designer.

The main cast members are as follows:

Masakazu Morita as Eiji Hoshimiya
Shiori Mikami as Rin Kurenai
Azusa Tadokoro as Iyo
Misaki Kuno as Sena Hoshimiya
Mari Misaki as Daisy
