Three additional voice actors have joined the cast of Taboo Tattoo, an upcoming action TV anime based on the seinen manga by Shinjirō about a young man who accidentally acquires a powerful weapon in the form of a cursed tattoo. The new line up includes:
Hitomi Nabatame as Kar Shekar, aka "Kar". Kar is a member of Princess Arya's entourage, and she devotes herself wholeheartedly to supporting the monarchy.
Eri Kitamura as Lisa Lovelock, aka "Lisa". Lisa is the leader of the "White Rose" unit, a team of soldiers for the United States Army that wield cursed tattoos. Lisa shares a deep bond of friendship with Izzy.
Toshiyuki Morikawa as Brad Blackstone, aka "BB". BB is a mysterious man who seems to possess extraordinary combat skills. His motivations are unknown.
The original Taboo Tattoo manga is serialized in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive seinen manga anthology magazine. The TV anime adaptation is directed by Takashi Watanabe and features animation by J.C. Staff. Taboo Tattoo begins its Japanese broadcast on Tokyo MX July 04, 2016, with later airings to follow on AT-X and BS Japan.
An English language version of Taboo Tattoo is published by Yen Press, who describe the manga as follows:
"By all accounts, middle schooler Seigi is pretty unremarkable except for his martial arts prowess and a desire to protect the weak. But when his good intentions are put to the test by saving an old homeless man from some street thugs, the mysterious man shows his gratitude by...burning a tattoo onto Seigi's palm?!
