Directed by Yûichirô Hirakawa (the Live-Action “Erased”) and a screenplay by Noriko Gotou (the Live-Action “Erased”), Emma will be played by Minami Hamabe, Ray Jyo Donald and Norman from Rihito Itagaki. At the moment it is what we know of the cast, but soon to come updates.
It will be the adaptation of the manga, and presumably the first arc of the narrative devoted to the escape of the children from Grace's Field House.
Emma, Norman and Ray live happily since birth in an orphanage, surrounded by a dense forest, cared for by a loving “mom”.

Begins a deadly game of cat and mouse!
