The main cast members were revealed for the Rebuild World anime over the weekend. The series is on the way to TV in Japan to adapt the light novel series by Nahuse, and VAs leading the cast include Daiki Yamashita as Akira, Yurika Kubo as Alpha and Honoka Inoue as Sheryl.
Nahuse’s light novels first started via the Shosetsuka ni Naro website back in 2017, and Kadokawa publishes the series with illustrations by Gin, environmental artist yish and mechanical designer cell.
J-Novel Club licensed the series in English and describes it below:
The pinnacle of human civilization has come and gone, leaving only ruins in its wake. Society and science now struggle to rebuild, rediscovering scraps of knowledge from powerful ancient artifacts that defy comprehension. These relics of the “Old World” can make the fortunes of those who find them—if ancient security systems and rogue bioweapons don’t kill the relic hunters first.
Akira, a young street orphan, sets out to become one such hunter to escape his brutal life in the slums. Untrained, malnourished, and poorly armed, Akira would be lucky to make it back from the ruins alive—until an encounter with Alpha, a mysterious, ghostly woman, changes his fate forever. Alpha needs a hunter, and she’s willing to train Akira to get one.
Will her support be enough to help a penniless kid from the slums climb to the top of a crushing and merciless world?
