A new subtitled trailer has dropped for Good Night World, and in it you can hear part of the ending theme song titled “salvia” being performed by Nornis.

Good Night World is all set to debut on Netflix on October 12.

Here is what we know of the cast (character name spellings may change): Daisuke Hirose plays Ichi / Taichirō Arima, Nobunaga Shimazaki plays AAAAA / Asuma Arima, Akio Ōtsuka plays Shirō Akabane / Kojirō Arima, Aya Endo plays May / Sayaka Arima, Aoi Yūki plays Pico, Ryohei Kimura plays Leon, Hiroki Nanami plays Sasumata, Kenjiro Tsuda plays Shigatera, Rie Takahashi plays Hana Kamuro, and Inori Minase plays Aya Arima.

The anime is being made at NAZ, with Katsuya Kikuchi of Idol Memories helming the project as director. The person in charge of writing and overseeing the scripts is Michiko Yokote, who has also worked on Cowboy Bebop, Prison School and more.

Netflix gave this description for the plot:

In the online game “Planet,” there is a powerful team of four players.
This team goes by the name “The Akabane Family,” and its members are a pseudo-family that only exists in the game.
Although they aren’t aware of it, these four players are actually a broken family in real life.
A shut-in older brother. A high-achieving younger brother. A father who is not respected by his own children. A mother who neglects her own household.
They do not know the warmth of family. They also don’t know that the warmth of their online family is only a passing feeling.
And most of all, they don’t know they are a real family.
Centered on the deeds of the Akabane Family in the online game “Planet,” the story features battles against monsters, clashes with other guilds, and the machinations surrounding “Black Bird,” the final objective of the game.
The tale takes a major turn as it entangles the real world and this real family.
