FLAGSHIP LINE and Yumeta Company x Graphinica released new information about the upcoming mecha sci-fi anime Muv-Luv Alternative. The new voice actors for the three main characters were revealed, as well as the key visual illustration. In addition, there is a new promotional video focusing on the Type-97 Fubuki mecha. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
None of the voice actors from the past will reprise their roles for Muv-Luv Alternative due the producer wanting Muv-Luv to be a series that never ends. By switching up the actors, it will be easier to bring in someone new if a main voice actor retires. The new cast is:
- Takeru Shirogane: Koichi Kamiki (Debut role)
- Sumika Kagami: Tomori Kusunoki (Lienn from Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online, Romin Kirishima from Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens)
- Meiya Mitsurugi: Karin Nanami (Yuriko Nishinotoin from Kakegurui)
The new promotional video for Muv-Luv Alternative lists the main staff and shows off the animation for mechas fighting. It gives a good look at the Type-97 Fubuki before ending with the key visual.
