posted on by Egan Loo
The previously announced cast members are:
Hiro Shimono as Anubis
Yuuki Kaji as Thoth
Frontier Works is producing the anime. The visual at right shows 13 characters: Anubis, Thoth, Medjed, Bastet, Seth, Horus, Ra, Apep, Sa-ta, Wenet, Khnum, Otter, and Sobek.
The image of the Egyptian god Medjed became famous in Japan in 2012, after the British Museum held an exhibit on ancient Egypt at the Mori Arts Center Gallery in Tokyo. The character's simple design spawned fan art, merchandise, comics, games, and other works that featured the character. Goodia, Inc. released The Egykoi! ~Egypt Kami to Koishi yo~ (Egy-love! Egyptian Gods and Love) gag otome game, which included Medjed and other Egyptian gods in a school setting. The Egykoi! ~Egypt Kami to Koishi yo~ [Idol Edition] follow-up featured the gods in a male idol industry setting.
