Funimation revealed a new English-subtitled trailer and more English cast members for the anime of Suu Minazuki's Plunderer manga at New York Comic Con on Saturday. The below seven-minute video first features the new trailer, then features an interview with voice actors Aoi Ichikawa and Ari Ozawa.

The new cast members include:

Elizabeth Maxwell as Lynn May (Ari Ozawa voices her in Japanese)

Austin Tindle as Pele Popolo (Aoi Ichikawa voices him in Japanese)

Funimation also revealed that Miku Itō will perform the show's opening theme song "Plunderer," and Rina Honnizumi (the voice of Hina) will perform the ending theme song "Countless Days."

The previously revealed cast includes:

Yen Press has licensed the "heroic action fantasy" manga, and the company 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.

Hiroyuki Kanbe (Oreimo both seasons, Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!) is directing the anime series at studio Geek Toys (RErideD). Masashi Suzuki (Isuca, Lord of Vermilion: The Crimson King, Minami-ke: Okawari) is overseeing the series scripts, and Yuka Takashina (Dance with Devils), Yūki Fukuchi (chief animation director for Bakuon!!), and Hiroki Fukuda (key animator for I want to eat your pancreas) are designing the characters.

Funimation will stream the anime as it airs in Japan. The anime will premiere in Japan in January 2020.

Minazuki launched the manga series in Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in December 2014.
