Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online is a spin-off series written by Keiichi Sigsawa, who is known for creating Kino’s Journey -the Beautiful World-. The story focuses on Karen Kohiruimkai, a girl who plays Gun Gale Online as a way to escape from life. In the game, she plays as a cute chibi avatar named Llen, but she tries to avoid player interaction. However, she meets Pitohui, who pressures Llen to participate in a battle royale tournament called Squad Jam.
Tomori Kusonoki will voice Llen, which will be her first major anime role. Other voice cast members include Yoko Hikasa (Rias Gremory in High School DxD) as Pitohui, Kazuyuki Okitsu (Nagare Hisui in K: Return of Kings) as M, and Chinatsu Akasaki (Alice Nakiri in Food Wars!) as Fukaziroh.
