Adaptation based on isekai fantasy light novel series hits Japanese TV in July of 2021
Three additional cast members have been revealed for TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy- (known in Japan as Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu), an upcoming TV anime based on the isekai fantasy light novel series written by Kei Azumi and illustrated by Mistuaki Matsumoto about a young man who is summoned to a magical world as a hero only to be rejected by the goddess that summons him for not being pretty enough.
The new cast members (pictured above, from left to right) include:
- Yuuki Shin as Haval, a human "alchemy meister" who despite his skills is clumsy and who often brings trouble on himself.
- Yuna Kamakura as Louisa, an elf "bless gunner" who specializes in long range attacks with a bow. Louisa doesn't really bear anyone ill will, but her words and disposition often come across as harsh and bitter.
- And Seika Kitamori as Ranina, a dwarf "holy knight". Ranina loves alcohol and is proud of her typically dwarven strength.
Published in Japan by AlphaPolis, the original TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy- light novels tell the story of Makoto Misumi, an ordinary high school student is transported to a fantasy world to serve as its hero, only to be cut loose when the world's unnamed goddess decides he doesn't measure up to her standards of beauty. Stripped of his hero status and banished to ends of the earth, how will Makoto survive in this strange new world?
TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy- is directed by Shinji Ishihira and features animation production by C2C. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan on TOKYO MX, Mainichi Broadcasting System, and BS NTV beginning in July of 2021.
