There has been an announcement of five new cast members as well as visual for Bungo to Alchemist (“Literary Master and Alchemist”), an upcoming TV anime based on the otome game by DMM Games. The anime will have a different take of famous authors who are super-powered librarians that are protecting the world of literature. The threat is real and very much uncanny to the protectors.
It has also been announced that Saisei Ryouta, who plays Ryota Osaka, Naoya Shiga, who plays Tomoaki Maeno , Mitsuo Shoji who plays KENN, Hiroshi Kikuchi, who plays Shinichiro Miki , and Hiroo Yoshino, who will play Masao Kume, will also appear in the anime.
The story of Bungo to Alchemist is set in a world where great works of literature have the power to move people’s hearts. However, literature itself is under threat by “Invader”, a malevolent force born of negative human emotion that seeks to erase these great works from humanity’s collective memories. Only “Alchemists” – reincarnated authors with special abilities – have the power to defend the world of literature from “Invader”.
