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

Tesshō Genda as Kaibara, the detective agency's head whose current whereabouts is unknown


Kenjiro Tsuda as Daichi, Yuki's father

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.

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.

The show will premiere on Toyko MX on April 7 at 11:30 p.m., before airing later that evening on BS11. The show will also later air on Yomiuri TV and AT-X. Hanazawa, Miya, and Irie will appear at an advance screening of the first three episodes at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 theater on April 1.
