Uesaka has become one of the popular voice actors with “THE [email protected] CINDERELLA GIRLS” (voiced Anastasia) and “Myriad Colors Phantom World” (voiced Mai Kawakami) and also has been a part of the “Mecha Tsuku” contest from the very start. Other cast members are Mai Nakahara, Satoshi Hino, Ayane Sakura, and Takanori Hoshino, and they will voice members of the Tokyo Kikou Institute/東京機巧研究所 who watch over Rin and Yuzuru.
Miyuki Kishimoto, who is not only active in the anime industry but also in the manga and game industry, wrote the script based on the original idea submitted by the public.

■Comment from Kouki Uchiyama voicing Rin Sagami
Although “RS Project –Rebirth Storage-“ is an one episode program, there’s so much in this one story.
Before the dubbing, we, the cast, had the chance to talk with there’s staff and heard the history and the passion behind this project.
I hope that a lot of the viewers will love this anime for a long time.
Don’t miss the show.
■Comment from Sumire Uesaka voicing Yuzuru Midou
When I watch robot animes, what I want to see the most is characters “breaking through a desperate situation.” “RS Project –Rebirth Storage-“ is just the right story for the “catharsis of robot anime.”
The story is well structured together with uniquely designed mechas and characters who have various backgrounds.
Please watch and support our “RS Project –Rebirth Storage-“!
■Comment from Osamu Kamei/亀井治, Director
I would just describe this project as “a great chance for me as a director.”
When we were finishing up the storyboard, we had a hard time putting everything from the script and original story by Roll (ロール) into a limited time frame and make the story as impressive as possible.
If you could see the breadth of this world and “catharsis of robot anime,” which was the theme of this project, through this work, I would call it a success. Now all of our staff are putting the most effort in the production. Please watch!
■Comment from Miyuki Kishimoto, Script Writer
When I read Roll/ロール’s project idea on the first meeting, I had to consider really hard to fit the whole story into the time frame, because the story was incredible and had such depth.
I couldn’t make it into a digest version, or make it into an ordinary one-episode story. I wanted to incorporate all the dramas but at the same time structure them so that some are left up to viewer’s imagination. It was difficult but very enjoyable as well.
It is just the beginning of “RS Project –Rebirth Storage-“.
I hope to deliver more breadth of the story, so please watch and support us.
■“RS Project –Rebirth Storage-“ Story
Unknown menace “Kikou” suddenly appeared from nowhere and started attacking humans. Countless cities were destroyed, and there was nothing that could be done.
It seemed like the whole civilization was at stake until a wreckage of Kikou was found in Japan. They established the Tokyo Kikou Institute/東京機巧研究所 to research the utilization of Kikou as weapons.
Fighting fire with fire and using the Kikou to fight against the Kikou is the only hope left for humanity to survive.
And nine years have passed.
The newly developed Kikou from the wreckage named “Muttsu/むっつ” was being prepared to use in actual fighting.
The pilot cadets of “Muttsu/むっつ”, Rin Sagami and Yuzuru must confront their mission carrying the hopes of the whole civilization on their shoulders.
Never did they imagine what a cruel fate awaited them.
