We learned back in June 2016 that the light novel series Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?, aka SukaSuka, was given the green light for an anime adaptation. It’s been mostly quiet since then other than confirming that it’s going to be a part of the spring season and some staff announcements. Now, the cast has been revealed which is pretty expansive as you can see below. Junichi Wada will be directing the project. Wada directed a few episodes of Gosick and Ragnastrike Angels and was the overall director on The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan.
The cast now includes:
- Ryouhei Arai as Vilem Cumesh
- Azusa Tadokoro as Kutori Nota Seniolis
- Machico as Icea Mize Valgalis
- Akari Uehara as Neflen Luku Insania
- Kazusa Araname as Larntolk Itsuri Historia
- Inori Minase as Ifuto Kay Desperatio
- Tomomi Mizuma as Tiat
- Yurika Kubo as Panibal
- Manaka Ishimi as Lakish
- Hina Kino as Coron
- Akane Kohinata as Armita
- Kikuko Inoue as Niglart
- Chiba as Glick Gleicluck
- Juurouta Kosugi as Limeskin
- Satomi Sato as Armania Dufna
- Honoka Inoue as Firacolribia Drio
- Rina Satou as Lila Asplay
- Mugito as Swon Kandel
The work comes from writer Akira Kareno with the prequel series having delivered five volumes between 2014 and 2016. The new series released its first volume this past April and there’s also a manga adaptation out there by Kaname Seu.
Though we’ll all probably just call it SukaSuka, the title for the original series translates as Do you have what THE END? Are you busy? Shall you save xxx?.
Plot concept: Five hundred years have passed since humanity went extinct at the hands of the fearsome “beasts.” Even up in the sky, where the surviving races dwell on floating islands, these monstrosities constantly threaten to bring death and destruction. Only a small group of young girls, the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient weapons needed to defeat these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.
