Yuta Murano (How Not to Summon a Demon Lord) serves as director at Ajia-do
The official website for the forthcoming anime film adaptation of Osamu Souda's juvenile novel Bokura no Nanokakan Sensou/Seven Days War has confirmed that it is set to be released in Japan on December 13, 2019, and also announced its main voice cast including Takumi Kitamura (four-member dance rock band DISH// leader/vocalist) as the protagonist Mamoru Suzuhara.
This is his second voice acting work following the protagonist Naomi Katagaki in Sword Art Online director Tomohiko Ito's original anime film HELLO WORLD released last weekend.
He says, "The Seven Days War novel was always placed in the school libraries, and I had an experience to write a book report about it, so I was honestly happy that I was able to be a voice actor for such a familiar series. Following the film 'HELLO WORLD,' this is my second voice acting work, but it was till very difficult for me to act only with my voice, I learned so many things again. I am honored to be involved in this series with so much history, and I feel like I revisited my youth again through this film. I hope many people will see it."
Main voice cast:
- Mamoru Suzuhara: Takumi Kitamura
- Aya Chiyono: Kyoko Yoshine (Jun Naruse in The Anthem of The Heart live-action film)
- Kaori Yamasaki: Megumi Han
- Souma Ogata: Tatsuhisa Suzuki
- Hiroto Honjo: Takeo Otsuka
- Saki Akutsu: Haruka Michii
- Mallet: Makoto Koichi
