The official website for the television anime adaptation of Tasuku Karasuma's No Guns Life manga began streaming a new promotional video for the anime on Friday. The video reveals the anime's cast and October premiere date, and also reveals and previews the anime's opening theme song "Motor City" by Kenichi Asai. The site also revealed a new visual for the anime.
The cast includes:
- Junichi Suwabe as Juzo Inui
- Manami Numakura as Mary Steinberg
- Daiki Yamashita as Tetsurō Arahabaki
Naoyuki Itou (Overlord all three seasons, Kanon, Kimi no Koe o Todoketai) is directing the anime at Madhouse (Boogiepop and Others, Overlord). Yukie Sugawara (Overlord all three seasons, Kino's Journey - the Beautiful World-, Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) is overseeing the series scripts and Masanori Shino (Black Lagoon, Digimon Adventure tri. films, Gungrave) is designing the characters. Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is composing the anime's music.
Viz Media licensed the manga and will begin releasing it this fall. The company describes the story:
With no memory of his previous life—or who replaced his head with a giant gun—Juzo Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver.
Karasuma launched the manga in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in August 2014 after first publishing the story as a one-shot manga. Shueisha released the eighth compiled book volume on March 19.
Karusuma has also drawn manga adaptations of Reideen and Eiichi Ikegami's Shangri-La novel.
