New cast members revealed for upcoming original production which hits Japanese TV in October of 2021
An action-packed new trailer and two new cast members have been revealed for SHIKIZAKURA, an upcoming original science fiction / action TV anime featuring creative talent from the Tokai region of Japan.
In SHIKIZAKURA, the characters of Endou and Koala Illusion (pictured above) are portrayed by Mushimegane and Toshimitsu, respectively. Mushimegane and Toshimitsu are both members of Tokai On Air, a YouTuber group based in Aichi Prefecture. Endou is a veteran stage actor who puts everything into his roles, while Koala Illusion is a hallucinatory being that appears and whispers to him.
Set in a world where monstrous creatures known as "Oni" routinely attack and devour human beings, the story of SHIKIZAKURA follows a Kakeru Miwa, a young man who accidentally dons a powered armor suit known as a "yoroi" and fights back against the Oni. Using the yoroi, which combines ancient secrets with cutting edge technology, Kakeru aims to become a hero that can protect people from the Oni, and so he joins the team that defends Ouka Myoujin, a shrine maiden who is destined to banish the Oni and save the world.
SHIKIZAKURA is directed by Shinya Sugai and Go Kurasaki and features animation production by SUBLIMATION. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan beginning in October of 2021.
