The 16bit Sensation ANOTHER LAYER anime is based on an original manga that illustrator Tamiki Wakaki collaborated on with Misato Mitsumi and Tatsuki Amazuyu of visual novel/game developer Aquaplus, and new info debuted for the project this weekend. Set in 1992, the story follows Meiko Uehara, who starts working part-time at a PC store, which is actually its secondary function.

Aoi Koga will voice the anime’s original protagonist, Konoha Akisato, and Atsushi Abe will voice Alcohol Soft member Mamoru Rokuda. Other cast members include Ayako Kawasumi as Kaori Shimoda and Yui Horie as Meiko Uehara.
