We noted that it was a good move on Kodansha USA’s part as they picked up the rights to the Are You Lost? manga last year as the series, known as Sounan desuka? in Japan, is getting an anime adaptation. Crunchyroll is getting an early start on some of their summer season pickups and they’ve now added this series. The show is set for a July 2019 debut but doesn’t have a premiere date in Japan yet and Crunchyroll has no regional availability yet. Nobuyoshi Nagayama is directing based on the series composition by Touko Machida, Ezola is on board for the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes:
- M.A.O. as Homare Onishima
- Hiyori Kouno as Asuka Suzumori
- Kiyono Yasuno as Mutsu Amatani
- Azumi Waki as Shion Kujou
The book began its run in the magazine in January 2017 and has four volumes out as of early March 2019.
