Kenichirou Matsuda, Kazuyuki Okitsu also join cast for series premiering this fall

The official website for Kino no Tabi - the Beautiful World- the Animated Series, the new television anime adaptation of Keiichi Sigsawa's Kino's Journey - The Beautiful World light novels, revealed five more cast members for the series on Friday.

The new anime will star Aoi Yūki as Kino and Sōma Saitō as Hermes.

The anime will premiere this fall, and Crunchyroll will stream the series.

Tomohisa Taguchi (Persona 4 the Golden Animation, Persona 3 the Movie #4 Winter of Rebirth, Twin Star Exorcists) is directing the anime at Lerche. Yukie Sugawara (Overlord, Hina Logi: from Luck & Logic) is in charge of series scripts. Ryoko Amisaki (Sumomomo Momomo - Chijō Saikyō no Yome, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc) is adapting Kouhaku Kuroboshi's original character designs for animation. EGG FIRM is credited for production.

The story follows the travels of Kino, a young adventurer who rides a talking motorcycle named Hermes. They explore the people and cultures of different places throughout their adventures, spending only three days at each location.

Sigsawa began serializing Kino's Journey in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki HP in 2000, and Kadokawa shipped the 20th volume last October. The novel was adapted into a 13-episode anime in 2003, and movies premiered in 2005 and 2007.
