The three worked together previously as voice actors in the already-ended TV anime adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge's manga series "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba". Natsuki Hanae voiced the protagonist role of demon slayer 'Tanjiro Kamado', Kana Hanazawa as the demon slayer and the love Hashira 'Mitsuri Kanroji', and Saori Hayami as the demon slayer and insect Hashira 'Shinobu Kocho'.
"The Town of Atokata: A 12-year Old Girl who Sees the War" is a work that depicts the days until the completion of the manga "Atokata no Machi" based on Ozawa's mother's war experience. It will be adapted into a "drama x manga", where manga is mixed everywhere in the live action, and the three new announced casts will appear in the manga part of the story.
Hanazawa will voice the role of Ai, a 12-year-old girl who will be the main character of the story. Hanae plays Yozo, the boy who fell in love with Ai, and Hayami plays Yozo's best friend, Hanako.
The manga x drama will premiere on NHK BS Premium at 21:59 on August 14, 2020.
