Haruka Tomatsu, Taketora join January 4 anime's cast

The official Twitter account for the television anime of Toshio Satō and illustrator Nao Watanuki's Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town (Tatoeba Last Dungeon Mae no Mura no Shōnen ga Joban no Machi de Kurasu Yō na Monogatari) light novel series revealed two new cast members for the anime last week. The new cast members include:

Haruka Tomatsu as Mena, a magic user, and one half of a skilled mercenary duo that includes her younger sister Phyllo. She is her sister's polar opposite: a bright, cheerful, and good-natured girl who is quick to make friends, but still possesses a calculating mind. She is skilled at water magic.

Taketora as Chrome, a former Imperial guard that now manages the military academy's cafeteria due to past circumstances. He is immediately keen to Lloyd's potential when the latter comes in for a part-time job, and hires him in order to supervise him. He has a very refined taste in food.

The show will premiere on January 4 on AT-X, Tokyo MX, BS11, ABEMA, and Sun TV. The anime was delayed from October to January. Funimation will stream the anime as it airs.

Yen Press is releasing the novel series in English, and it describes the first novel volume:

Lloyd is a novice adventurer whose dream is to discover “true strength” in the capital he's always admired, despite growing up with neighbors who always considered him weak. The story starts with him departing his hometown, which just so happens to be located right next to…one of the most dangerous dungeons in the world?! Lloyd may think of himself as powerless, but when he goes to the city that serves as the starter town for adventurers, the difference between him and everyone else couldn't be starker!

The anime's cast also includes:

Director migmi is helming the anime at LIDEN FILMS. Makoto Iino is designing the characters, and Deko Akao is charge of the series scripts. Masakazu Miyake is directing the art, and Misato Aida is the color key artist. Junpei Takatsu is the compositing director of photography, and Misaki Enokida is editing. Jin Aketagawa is directing the sound, and MICHIRU is composing the music. Haruka Yamazaki is performing the opening theme song "Tatoeba Sore wa Yūki no Mahō" (Suppose That is the Magic of Bravery), and Luce Twinkle Wink☆ are performing the ending theme song "I'mpossible?."

GA Bunko began publishing the light novel series in February 2017. Hajime Fusemachi launched a manga adaptation on the Gangan Online website in September 2017. Square Enix is publishing Fusemachi's manga adaptation in English.

Souchu launched a slice-of-life spinoff manga titled Tatoeba Last Dungeon Mae no Mura no Shōnen ga Joban no Machi no Shokudō de Hataraku Nichijō Monogatari (Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Worked at a Restaurant in a Starter Town) in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine on January 11.
