Update: I neglected to add in the OP and ED theme song artists, so the text below has been updated with the info!
Back in June we got the main cast announcements for the upcoming Redo of Healer anime, based on the light novels by Rui Tsukiyo. With the January 2021 premiere on the horizon, the official channels went live with a new key visual and promo, as well as two more cast members.
First up, the promo:
The new cast additions are:
VA: Mami Fujita (Kyousuke in Oreimo)
VA: Tetsu Inada (Nappa in Dragon Ball Z)
Previously revealed cast:
VA: Yūya Hozumi (Uta Outa in ACTORS: Songs Connection)
VA: Ayano Shibuya (Hoshi in Pokémon Sun & Moon)
VA: Shizuka Ishigami (Ikumi Mito in Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma)
VA: Natsuki Aikawa (Petra Ral in Attack on Titan: Junior High)
VA: Natsumi Takamori (Maron-chan in High School Fleet)

Minami Kuribayashi is on the OP theme, "Zankoku na Yume to Nemure," with ARCANA PROJECT closing the show out with the "Yume de Sekai wo Kaeru nara" ED theme.
The novel was first posted in the user-generated novel publishing website Shousetsuka ni Narou in November 2016, and its print edition has been published from KADOKAWA's Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko since December 2017. Its total print run has surpassed 800,000 copies and counting.
The story centers on KeYaru, the hero with healing magic who was exploited by other heroes and magicians over and over again. But he finally gets the Philosopher's stone and beats the demon king by himself. With the ultimate abilities he gained, he goes back four years to redo everything and get revenge on everyone who trifled him.
Takuya Asaoka (Kandagawa Jet Girls episode director) is attached to direct, alongside series composition writer Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) and character designer Junji Goto (High School DxD). TNK (Senran Kagura Shinovi Master -Tokyo Youma-hen-) works on animation production.
