Deserted island antics abound in new trailer
An airplane crash has left a handful of survivors to fend for themselves on a deserted island... but hopefully the girls of Are You Lost? will have a slightly more straightforward time of it than the passengers of Oceanic Flight 815.
The seinen survival manga by Kentaro Okamoto and Riri Sagara, originally titled SOUNAN desuka?, is on course for an anime adaptation. The series, which has already been adapted once for stage, focuses on four girls washed up on an abandoned island after an accident.
Starring in the series will be M.A.O (Minori Asagiri, Mob Psycho 100) as "professional survivalist" Homare Onishima; Hiyori Kono (Phil, The Promised Neverland) as the athletic Asuka Suzumori; Azumi Waki (Special Week, Umamusume: Pretty Derby) as the ladylike Shion Kujyo; and Kiyono Yasuno (Nejire Hado, My Hero Academia) as the brainy Mutsu Amatani.
Kodansha distributes the manga in English. From the official summary:
Because of a plane crash … starting today, we’re spending the springtime of our lives on a desert island!! There’s nothing here, so we have to make everything!! And eat everything!! (Ugh!) Check out our high-school-girl survival story of courage and knowledge. We’re actually doing pretty well! Volume 1 includes: how to eat cicadas, how to build traps, a simple allergy test, how to eat hermit crabs, etc.
Nobuyoshi Nagayama (Happy Sugar Life) is set to direct the series, which will premiere on TOKYO MX this July.
