Miyu Tomita, Kent Itō Join Cast of Heat the Pig Liver Anime

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Anime based on isekai light novel series premieres in October

The official website for the television anime of Takuma Sakai's Heat the Pig Liver (Buta no Liver wa Kanetsu Shiro) light novel series revealed two more cast members on Friday.

The new cast includes Miyu Tomita as Ceres (pictured first below) and Kent Itō as Nott (pictured second, character name spellings are not official).



The anime will premiere in October, but will first have a screening event in Tokyo on September 30.

Masayuki Takahashi (assistant director on Higehiro, Reborn as a Vending Machine, I Now Wander the Dungeon) is directing the anime at project No.9. Deko Akao (Higehiro, Komi Can't Communicate, Flying Witch) is overseeing the series scripts, and Susumu Watanabe (Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!, Yōjo Shachō R) is designing the characters. Kenichiro Suehiro (Cells at Work!, Goblin Slayer, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) and MAYUKO (Cells at Work! theme songs) are composing the music.

In the isekai story, if you lose consciousness while eating raw pig liver, you will be reincarnated as a pig in a fantasy world and embark on an adventure with a kind girl named Jess who can read people's minds. That is exactly what happens to one ordinary otaku with no abilities or talents, save that of being reborn as a pig.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka voices the pig, and Tomori Kusunoki voices Jess. The two reprise their roles from Dengeki Bunko's promotional video for the series from March 2020.

Sakai launched the novel series with illustrations by Asagi Tōsaka (The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy, Girly Air Force) in March 2020, after winning the gold prize (effectively second place) in the 26th Dengeki Novel Prize in 2019. Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko imprint is publishing the novels in print.

Minami launched an ongoing manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Dengeki Maoh magazine in August 2020.
