Mai Nakahara, Marina Inoue, Satoshi Tsuruoka also cast in summer series

The official website for Cop Craft, the television anime of Shoji Gatoh's Cop Craft Dragnet Mirage Reloaded light novel series, revealed additional cast members and character visuals on Thursday.

The newly announced cast members are:

Fumiko Orikasa as Cecil Epps

Kenji Hamada as Jack Roth

Ryousuke Takahashi as Tony Mcbee

Mai Nakahara as Jamie Austin

Marina Inoue as Cameron Estefan

Satoshi Tsuruoka will also play Alexander Godunov, but the website did not reveal designs for the character. The character shares his name with a late Russian-American ballet dancer, but it is unclear if the connection was intentional.

As previously announced, the anime stars:

Kenjiro Tsuda as Kei Matoba

Mayu Yoshioka as Tilarna Exedilika

The anime will premiere this summer.

Shin Itagaki (2016 Berserk, Teekyū) is directing the anime at Millepensee, and Gatoh himself is in charge of the series scripts. Hiromi Kimura is adapting Range Murata's original character designs for animation.

The story is set in San Teresa City on the fictional Pacific island of Kariaena. The "buddy police action" series follows the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana.

15 years ago, an unknown hyperspace gate opened over the Pacific. Beyond this gate lies Reto Semaani, a strange alternate world where fairies and demons live.

San Teresa City — a city where over two million immigrants live from both worlds. As a result, there are the haves and the have-nots. Here is the world's newest "city of dreams." But in the shadow of the chaos, crime is rampant: drugs, prostitution, and weapon trafficking. The detectives who stand up to these heinous crimes are in the San Teresa City Police. When the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana — two individuals who differ in gender, personality, and even world of origin — meet, an incident erupts. Two worlds. Two justices. From this, the curtain rises on a buddy police action story!

Range Murata (Last Exile, Blue Submarine No. 6) illustrates the light novel series, which Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint started publishing in November 2009. The seventh volume will ship in early summer.

Other stories by Gatoh that have inspired anime include Full Metal Panic! and Amagi Brilliant Park.
