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.
The previously revealed cast includes:
- Yoshiki Nakajima / Eric Vale as Licht Bach
- Rina Honnizumi / Sarah Wiedenheft as Hina
- Yuichiro Umehara as Jail Murdoch
- Shizuka Itou as Nana
- Ari Ozawa / Elizabeth Maxwell as Lynn May
