Trillion Game Anime Reveals Main Cast, Production at Madhouse Studio
Kadokawa revealed the teaser visual and main cast for the television anime adaptation of Riichirou Inagaki and Ryoichi Ikegami's Trillion Game manga on Thursday. Kadokawa also announced that Madhouse is in charge of the series' animation.
The anime's main cast are:
Takeo Ōtsuka as Haru Tennōji
Shōya Ishige as Manabu "Gaku" Taira
The anime will air on TBS and other channels in Japan.
The manga centers on the carefree Haru and the serious Gaku, two men who plot to earn a trillion dollars in order to afford anything they might ever want in the world. Haru is an eloquent, persuasive, and confident speaker, which allows him to be in anyone's good graces. Gaku is an awkward but highly skilled programmer. The two were schoolmates in middle school, and reunite when Gaku's application to a bank company is rejected.
Inagaki (Eyeshield 21, Dr. Stone) and Ikegami (Crying Freeman) launched the manga in Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine in December 2020. Shogakukan will publish the manga's eighth compiled book volume on November 30. The manga has more than 1.5 million copies in circulation.
The manga inspired a live-action series adaptation that premiered on the TBS channel and its affiliates on July 14. Ren Meguro from idol group Snow Man plays protagonist Haru Tennōji, while Hayato Sano plays Manabu "Gaku" Taira. Netflix is streaming the series.
