The cast and additional staff have also been announced! The background music will be handled by Iwashiro Taro, who is known for his work on Red Cliff and Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos.
The first full PV is one of the longest in anime trailer history at 2 minutes 30 seconds,.The first part of the PV features the cast members Hiroaki Miura (Kojiro Shindo), Takuya Terashima (Yaha-kui zaShunina) and MAO (Saraka Tsukai). The live action then blends seamlessly into the scenes from the animated work in the second part.
Keep on reading because we have screenshots and comments from each of the main cast members!
The first full PV
Comment from Hiroaki Miura (Kojiro Shindo)
‘Shindo is an excellent negotiator, but I think that his excellence comes from the fact that he has always lived by taking an interest in many things and properly considering them. He is interested in the cultures of Japan and of other countries, and constantly broadens his mind. I think that is what makes him such a good character, and is one reason for his high negotiating abilities.
This anime is all CG, so of course that’s one reason to pay attention to it, but I also think it’s a good science fiction anime of the likes you have never seen before. It is a story that approaches both the theory of relativity and quantum physics, and I don’t think there have ever been an anime that has been so related to science before, so I really hope you will give it a try.’
Comment from Takuya Terashima (Yaha-kui zaShunina)
‘Yaha-kui zaShunina is a mysterious being who is not from the world we inhabit or even any place we know. Just what kind of being is he, what kind of existence, what is his aim, and what does the title KADO: The Right Answer have to do with this story? If you are thinking these questions then you should definitely check out this anime.
A highlight of this anime… I want to repeat what Miura said before me- it is good sci-fi. When I auditioned I was asked to ‘talk about sci-fi’ and that left an impression on me, so I definitely think that I want to keep telling you all how good the sci-fi aspects are. One of the points to look forward to is how this work is will have you thinking about the contents of each episode long after you have finished watching it. I think you will enjoy thinking about the world of KADO and about what the work is saying. You will also enjoy thinking about the mysteries that will appear. So I would be happy if you can not just enjoy watching the show, but also look deep into the content.’
Comment from MAO (Saraka Tsukai)
‘Saraka Tsukai is a very consistent young woman who is in the very important position of being a negotiator. You can catch a glimpse of the gap that exists between her work and private life, and I think her charm point is that she has a cute and innocent side to her.
I think one of the highlights of this work is how you can look forward to how humanity can possibly negotiate with zaShania. The essence of communication is a very important theme of this anime. Please watch it.’
