Qualidea Code TV Anime Casts Sora Amamiya, Hiroaki Hirata, Mamiko Noto

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Anime about children with supernatural powers defending cities against unknown enemies premieres on July 9

The official website of the Qualidea Code television anime announced three additional cast members for the anime on Wednesday.

Sora Amamiya as Seiki Yaegaki (name romanization not confirmed), a girl affiliated with the Kanagawa Camp, and in charge of support for Maihime Tenkawa. She has a very slight presence, with the kind of personality to let her individuality be suppressed by those around her. She is constantly bothered by people not remembering her name.

The site also revealed Hiroaki Hirata as Kyūtoku Asanagi and Mamiko Noto as Airi Ibunami (Note: Not official character name romanizations), both affiliated with the Southern Kantō Administration Bureau. The site will reveal character visuals for both characters in the next few days.

The rest of the cast includes:

  • Chika Anzai as Asuha Chigusa, the head of Chiba City
  • Yūma Uchida as Kasumi Chigusa, the subhead of Chiba City
  • Sōma Saitō as Ichiya Suzaku, the head of Tokyo City
  • Yui Ishikawa as Canaria Utara, the subhead of Tokyo City
  • Aoi Yūki as Maihime Tenkawa, the head of Kanagawa City
  • Ayaka Fukuhara as Hotaru Rindo, the subhead of Kanagawa City

The anime takes place in a world where humans are continuing to fight a war against an enemy called UNKNOWN. UNKNOWN invaded several decades ago, and children entered a cold sleep to escape the invasion. When the children awoke, they found themselves with supernatural powers. The children set up defense cities in Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba in order to protect the country from the UNKNOWN, who appear through the Tokyo Bay Gate.

Qualidea Code is part of an overall multimedia project by five publishers: Shueisha's Dash X Bunko imprint, Kadokawa's Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint, Kadokawa's MF Bunko J imprint, Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint, and Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine.

Speakeasy — the author unit made up of Sou Sagara (HENNEKO/The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.), Koushi Tachibana (Date A Live), and Wataru Watari (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) — is in charge of the original concept for the project alongside Marvelous. The three authors are also writing the anime's scripts.

Inside the world of the multimedia project, Sou Sagara is in charge of the Tokyo story, Koushi Tachibana is in charge of the Kanagawa story, and Wataru Watari is in charge of the Chiba story.

Kenichi Kawamura (Rozen Maiden, SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Matsuryū (Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye, Shōjo-tachi wa Kōya o Mezasu) drew the original character designs, and Hisayuki Tabata (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Yuyushiki) is adapting those designs for animation. Taku Iwasaki (Gurren Lagann, Noragami, Soul Eater) is composing the music.

LiSA (Sword Art Online, Fate/Zero) will perform the opening theme song "Brave Freak Out," Claris (Madoka Magica, Oreimo) will perform the first ending theme song "Gravity," and GARNiDELiA (Kill la Kill, The irregular at magic high school) will perform the second ending theme song "Yakusoku -Promise Code-."

The series will premiere on July 9.
