Comment from Maybe
Is it really true that The Abandoned Sacred Beasts is getting an anime? That’s how I feel, but it seems to be true! The character design looks really cool, the cast is full of wonderful people and there will be many things to look forward to. Please, everybody, look forward to the series! I am also looking forward to it a lot!!
Katsuyuki Konishi (voice of Hank)
This is one of my favorite works which is why I gave my all at the audition. I hope I will fit the image of everybody and hope I’ll be able to enjoy the recordings!
Ai Kakuma (voice of Schaal)
I will be voicing Schaal for this series! I read the manga in preparation for the audition and think she’s a woman with a strong will, who keeps going on with all she has for her own beliefs and doesn’t give in to grief.
