The upcoming Fall 2017 anime Inuyashikihas revealed two new characters and their cast, as well as the ending theme artist and a second trailer! The anime will start airing on 13 October 2017.
Sumire Uesaka was cast to voice Inuyashiki’s daughter, Mari Inuyashiki, and Sumire Morohoshi was cast as Shion Watanabe, a character who is on Shishigami’s side. The visuals of the characters have been revealed as well.
The ending theme song will be provided by Qaijff, a band from Aichi who will have their major debut with this song, ‘Ai wo Oshietekureta Kimi he’. They created a song to fit the series and ‘to convey something to your loved ones’. As Inuyashiki tries to make the world a better place with his unique powers and is doing it all for his family, it seems the song will fit the series perfectly.
Inuyashiki was reborn into the body of a machine and gained powers far greater than that of any human. Shishigami, who faced the same situation as him, is using the power he gained in a different way. Shishigami is the one who hurts the people who disobey his will, while Inuyashiki is the one who rescues them from what Shishigami is doing to them. Is the essence of humanity being good or being bad? We will follow the different paths the two of them take and see what they do with their power.
