Darwin's Game Anime Geek Impulse

The manga’s story writer Hide Fukayama will be working on of all the anime episodes for Darwin’s Game


The official website for the television anime adaptation of FLIPFLOPs’ Darwin’s Game manga revealed the first promotional video, additional cast, staff, and broadcast information on Tuesday. The anime will premiere in January on Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, Yomiuri TV, TV Aichi, BS11, and AT-X. AbemaTV will stream the series as it airs, and other services will stream it later.

The newly announced cast members are:

  • Nichika Omori as Rain
  • Taku Yashiro as Ryūji
  • Yumiri Hanamori as Sui/Sōta

Yoshinobu Tokumoto (Comic Girls) is directing the series at Nexus. As previously revealed, FLIPFLOPs member Shū Miyama is writing the scripts. Kazuya Nakanishi (animation director for Granbelm, Comic Girls) is designing the characters. Kenichiro Suehiro (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Golden Kamuy) is composing the music.

I’m happy to be cast as the role of Kaname! The game begins when the character is forced to get involved, but its extreme battles that he has to find a way out from a small chance always makes us excited. I am also looking forward to seeing how the dynamic scene using shigill will be expressed in the anime. The story includes a lot of harsh moments and may make your heart exhausted. But I hope I can at least lighten and neutralize the atmosphere in the voice recording booth (laugh). Please enjoy the intense battles that are always next to death!

The Game is too terrifying, because it involves real life and death moments in addition to supernatural powers. I’m already looking forward to seeing how its thrilling and unique worldviews will be illustrated in the anime. I will do my best so that you can feel the strong, beautiful and sturdy charm of Shuka in the anime as well! I appreciate for your support for both the manga and the anime.
