Masaharu Watanabe and Shinichirou Otsuka, the team behind Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World, will produce a new original anime called Granbelm. Nexus will produce the anime and Jukki Hanada will be in charge of series composition. The anime is scheduled to come out in Summer 2019.
Take a look at the first teaser visual, which shows the two characters we’re getting introduced to today. The voice cast for these members has been revealed as well.
Mangetsu Kohinata (VA: Miyuri Shimabukuro)
She is an ordinary high school student. If someone asks her something, it only takes two questions to get her to do it, whatever it is, but she herself doesn’t think of it as a burden. She isn’t particularly good at sports or studying but she goes along with her classmates. Sometimes she thinks to herself that she ‘can’t do anything’ and a faint longing fills her to find something ‘only she can do and nobody else’.
Fukami Ernesta Shingetsu (VA: Atsumi Tanezaki)
This girl lived in Japan when she was a child but then moved to Germany. She came back to Japan only recently. She seems to be a quiet girl to whom one can’t say anything bad. In any case, she doesn’t mind. Unexpectedly she is someone who sometimes can’t tell left from right and thus just follows the lead of Mangetsu, copying her reactions.
