The latest anime update for Sword Art Online is downloading fast, the official Twitter for Gun Gale Online announcing the series will premiere in April. Among the locked and loaded cast, we have Tomori Kusunoki as Llenn, Flip Flappers’ Yoko Hikasa as Pitui, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure‘s Kazuyuki Okitsu as M and Food Wars!’ Chinatsu Akasaki as Fukaziroh.
The Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online light novels which inspired the anime are written by Keiichi Sigsawa, who also created Kino’s Journey. Illustrated by Kouhaku Kuroboshi, English versions of the novels are in development from Yen Press, who describe our heroine in GGO:
The fact that Kohiruimaki Karen is 183 centimeters tall has always been something she’s felt extremely self-conscious about as an introverted high school girl. But in the world of games, she can be whoever she wants to be! In the popular Gun Gale Online game, she’s Ren, a short, all pink, P90 wielding bombshell who’s aiming to win the next battle royale!
If you’re curious to see more of these characters before the anime logs in, there’s the upcoming Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet game set to ship in the west in February. The gun-battling RPG will feature Llen and Pitui as playable characters, alongside Kirito and familiar friends.
