The main cast has been announced for Karada Sagashi ("Searching for the Body"), an upcoming short form anime based on the gruesome survival horror web manga written by Welzard and illustrated by Katsutoshi Murase about students haunted by a terrifying spectre that threatens to tear them limb from limb.
Takuya Eguchi will play male lead character Takahiro Ise, while Kana Asumi will play female lead character Asuka Morisaki. In addition to the cast announcements, a grim promotional image was also released featuring the results of the "Your Favorite Ways to Be Killed Popular Vote", an online pole that asked fans to choose their favorite ways that the Red Ghost dispatches its victims.
The original Karada Sagashi manga is serialized in Shueisha's Shōnen Jump + digital manga magazine, and the short form anime adaptation will be published on Production I.G's "Tate Anime" smart phone app beginning on July 31, 2017.
The story of Karada Sagashi involves a Groundhog Day-like scenario where a group of students are forced to re-live a terrifying night by a gruesome apparition known as the Red Ghost. In order to escape, the students must gather up all of the pieces of a dismembered corpse which are scattered throughout their school. But while they search, the Red Ghost stalks them, and anyone who is caught is instantly torn to shreds...
