Four new cast members have been revealed for GIBIATE, an upcoming original TV anime about a group of time-displaced samurai and ninja fighting to survive in a monster-filled, post-apocalyptic near-future Japan. The new cast members include:
Shuichi Ikeda (Char Aznable in Mobile Suit Gundam) as Dr. Yoshinaga.

Hiromi Sakimoto (Enji Matsuda in Kamen Rider Zero-One) as Mikimoto Isao.
And Emi Ito (Emi-sensei in Kamen Rider Fourze) as Funada Yurika (not pictured).
The story of GIBIATE is described as follows:
In 2030, Japan. A virus has infected humans throughout the world. Infected people turn into different forms of monsters based on their ages, sexes and races. The virus is named ‘Gibia’ - after being rich in variety like gibier. Just then, a pair of samurai and ninja appeared in such a blighted wasteland of Japan. They both travelled from the early Edo period, fighting together with help from a doctor who tries to find cure for Gibia. Facing ceaseless attacks from Gibia, and outlaws that attack travelers for food, they start the dangerous journey with enemies all around.
GIBIATE is directed by Masahiko Komino. The series will broadcast in Japan beginning in the Summer of 2020.
