The official website for the anime of Suu Minazuki's Plunderer manga posted four more main cast members and the designs for the main characters on Sunday:
Aoi Ichikawa as Pele, a sergeant in the Alcian Royal Military under Lynn
Yuichiro Umehara as Jail Murdoch, a lieutenant in the Alcian Royal Military
Shizuka Itou as Nana, a lively beauty who runs a traveling tavern
Yoshiki Nakajima and Rina Honnizumi star in the anime as main characters Licht Bach and Hina, respectively.
Yen Press has licensed the "heroic action fantasy" manga, and it describes the story:
It's the year 305 of the Alcian calendar, and the world is controlled by numbers. Every human born is branded with a "Count,” which could mean anything from the number of kilometers walked to the amount of people who have said your food is tasty. And if your Count drops to 0… you'll be sent into the Abyss! After Hina's mother's Count dropped to 0, her last request is for Hina to look for the Legendary Red Baron.
