Island will hit Japanese TV this summer.

Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Nurse Witch Komugi R, Hayate the Combat Butler) was tapped to direct the project at studio feel., with Kōsuke Kawamura (Frame Arms Girl, OniAi) providing character designs. Naruhisa Arakawa (Blue Seed, Outbreak Company) is in charge of series composition.

Akiyuki Tateyama is scoring the show’s soundtrack, while MAGES handles music production. Yukari Tamura, who voices Rinne Ohara, will perform the opening theme song. Asaka will handle the show’s closing theme song.

The confirmed voice cast includes:

  • Sara Garandō: Hibiku Yamamura
  • Karen Kurutsu: Kana Asumi
  • Rinne Ohara: Yukari Tamura
  • Sara Garandō: Hibiku Yamamura
  • Karen Kurutsu: Kana Asumi
  • Rinne Ohara: Yukari Tamura

The original visual novel shipped to retailers in April 2016. A PlayStation Vita port was released in February 2017, which failed to break into the Media Create top-20 when it launched. An English version will be released in North America later this year.

Frontwing describes the game as:

Urashima, an island far from the mainland. The people who live there lead carefree lives. But five years ago, the island’s three great families suffered a series of misfortunes, and succumbed to suspicion. The people of the island cut off all contact with the mainland, and began a slow decline. The key to saving the island lies in three girls who belong to the three families. But they are bound by old traditions, and are conflicted. On that island, a lone man washes ashore. The man claims to be from the future, and he begins a solitary struggle to change the island’s fate.
