Ahead of the anime’s debut this July, Peach Boy Riverside shared a brief promotional video that lets us listen in on dialogue and hear some of the actors who have been hired.
Haruka Shiraishi plays Sally, Nao Tōyama plays Mikoto, M.A.O plays Frau, Toshiki Masuda plays Hawthorn, Megumi Toda plays Carrot and Jiro Saito plays Inu/Dog.
Kodansha USA publishes the English translation of the Peach Boy Riverside manga, and described the first volume this way:
“Saltherine Aldarake, princess of the Kingdom of Aldarake, dreams of traveling the world—a dangerous dream in a land where monsters roam the countryside as they please, and humans live behind high, strong walls. But when a chance meeting with traveler Mikoto gives hope to her dream, he shatters it soon after, as he reveals himself to be none other than Momotaro, ruthless demon-slayer. Though horrified by the gore Momotaro leaves behind, Saltherine is convinced more than ever that she needs to learn about the world beyond her walls, and journeys out…following the steps of the mysterious, charismatic, terrifying boy she met that day…”
