First of all, it’s supposed to air, premiere, whatever, on or around April 25th. It’s being produced by Ordet, a studio made up of individuals from different companies. Most of them worked on previous great animes, such as Haruhi Suzumiya no Yuutsu, Lucky Star, and so forth. The director of the project is Yoshioka Shinobu who worked directly on both of the previously mentioned animes.
As for voice actors, they recruited Kana Hanazawa as the voice for Black Rock Shooter herself. However, the name of the character she’s voicing is listed as Kuroi Mato. I’m going to take a guess at it, but I’m going to guess that’s the name of Black Rock Shooter’s schoolgirl counterpart, the girl on the right on the above picture. Kana Hanazawa is one of my favorite voice actors for the simple fact that she voiced Sengoku Nadeko on Bakemonogatari and sang my second favorite opening theme to that anime.
The other voice actor they got is Sawashiro Miyuki, who is also a renowned voice actor. She is playing the voice of what I can only assume is Dead Master’s schoolgirl counterpart on the left, Takanashi Yomi. The two character she voiced that stand out to me the most are Kanbaru Suruga of Bakemonogatari, and Marisa Kirisame from the Touhou Doujin Anime: A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The anime that will be showing is only one episode, as I don’t imagine that they could develop a whole series out of this without a Bleach amount of filler material. Regardless, I’ll be looking very forward to it and I know I’ll be downloading it once it comes out and is subbed.
