The official website for the television anime of Wright Flyer Studios' Shōmetsu Toshi (Annihilated City — Where I End and You Begin) smartphone game revealed a seventh visual and two new cast members for the series on Thursday.

The two new cast members include:

Hidenori Takahashi as Taiyō


Asami Imai as Tsuki

The anime will premiere in April on Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, and BS11.

The anime stars:

Shigeyuki Miya (Blood Lad, Onihei) is directing the anime, and Shingo Irie (Kuroko's Basketball, Sakura Quest) is in charge of the series scripts. Tomoyuki Shitaya (Bakuman., Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) is designing the characters. Satoshi Motoyama is directing the sound, and Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Eden of the East, Patlabor) is composing the music. Madhouse is producing the series, and Pony Canyon is producing the music.

Mao Abe is performing the opening theme song "Kotae" (Answer), and the five-member all-female idol unit SPR5 are performing the show's ending theme song "With Your Breath." The anime will also feature the song "Swallowtail Butterfly ~Ai no Uta~" performed by Kana Hanazawa as her character Yuki.

In the anime's story, one day a town is annihilated. Yuki is a young woman who is said to be the only person left alive from the town after the annihilation, and Takuya is a loner and a smuggler. Together, with the letter left by Yuki's father, they go toward the town, now called Lost, but unexpected obstacles stand in their path. The thoughts of those left behind, secret and mysterious organizations, and hidden conspiracies await Yuki and Takuya as they move closer toward the mystery behind Lost.

Wright Flyer Studios and GREE launched the game in Japan in May 2014, and the game has more than 9 million downloads worldwide. An update titled Shōmetsu Toshi 2 launched in November 2016, and the Shōmetsu Toshi 0. update launched on November 25. The game is getting a new app titled Shōmetsu Toshi Drama RPG MIX, as well as the Shōmetsu Toshi - AFTERLOST game. Shōmetsu Toshi - AFTERLOST will launch in April worldwide. Wright Flyer Studios also announced a completely new 3D work using Unreal Engine 4, but it is currently unclear if that is a separate project or if it is the Shōmetsu Toshi - AFTERLOST game.
