Fans of both 2D anime characters AND 2.5D stage actors, rejoice! An all-new cross-dimensional anime project awaits! Known simply as “Revolutionary Cross-Dimensional Fantasy Anime ～ Dimension High School～”, the series will be premiering in January 2019!
As the series title suggest, the plot involves the pictured main casts of 5 characters as they first appeared in 3-dimensional (i.e. real-lives) sense; then by some warped plot-twist, are all simultaneously whipped into a fantasy 2-dimensional anime world and appear as their anime-boys counterparts! The series will have both 2D and 3D parts and the acting-plus-voice casts for the five main characters have just been announced! Let’s take a look:
Junpei Shirayama – voiced and played by up-and-rising star young seiyuu Takahide Ishii
Ryusei Midorigaoka – voiced and played by Takeo Ohzuka, another new seiyuu
Yurio Mizukami – played by popular 2.5D actor Shohei Hashimoto
Takeshi Kikawada – voiced and played by another popular 2.5D actor, Takuma Zaika
Souji Momodani – voiced and played by another popular 2.5D actor Toshiyuki Someya
The series director and scriptwriter will be undertaken by Yuichi Abe, who is famed for his works on the “Ultraman” tokusatsu-drama series. Character designs were done by Taiwanese illustrator Izumi, who is also famed for her works with popular browser and online game “Touken Ranbu -Online-“. This new series will be participating in the upcoming Animate Girls’ Festival 2018 happening in Ikebukuro’s Sunshine City on 10 ~ 11 November 2018 and new original “Dimension High School”character goods designed by Izumi-san will be on sales during the event!
The main cast will also get their own special web-radio program “Dimension High School After Class!” via Radio Osaka Channel on Niconico-douga site. First broadcast is scheduled to go on air on 19 October and will feature the two new young seiyuus Takahide Ishii and Takeo Ohzuka.
