Voltage's official website for Tenka Tōitsu Koi no Ran: Shutsujin! Saika 4-nin Shū, the short anime adaptation of its Samurai Love Ballad: Party (Tenka Tōitsu Koi no Ran Love Ballad) smartphone game, revealed the anime's cast on Thursday. Voltage had announced the anime adaptation in October. The cast includes:
Sho Nogami as Hibari
Shohei Komatsu as Tobi
Taichi Ishikawa as Chidori
All four characters are new characters original to the anime.
The anime will premiere within the Samurai Love Ballad: Party app in May. Saya Fukase (Gamers! 3DCGI cooperation) is directing the anime at UWAN Pictures. Itaru is credited with the original character designs, and the company Mikagami is credited with the scenario and scripts. The company Feathered is composing the music.
Voltage describes the game:
15th Century Japan is ravaged by constant wars, as the lords of the realm seek to rule the land. Having lost your father in battle, you are working in the restaurant he left your mother and little brother...when an evil magistrate sends your little brother away...to become a poison taster! To save his life, you disguise yourself as a boy and go to the castle in his place...but what awaits you there is so much more!
“I'll show you all...my divine rule!”
In the Sengoku era...love is the most dangerous battle of all!
Voltage released the game in Japan in 2014, and released the English version in 2016.
Voltage established a new subsidiary named Vol Pictures last October. The new company will work on planning, development, and sales of film, anime, and television series adaptations of its parent company's properties. Voltage established a new "Anime and IP Division" last May.
