- Fukushi Ochiai as Cam
My name is Fukushi Ochiai and I will be playing the role of Cam. I am very happy to be able to breathe as Cam in this world. I hope to laugh, cry, be happy, and be surprised together with Cam.
- Akira Sekine as Yuiss
My name is Akira Sekine, and I will be playing the role of Yuis in the anime “To Your Eternity Season 2”.
I have the impression that Yuis is not a strong girl, but she is a kind and gentle girl who cares for her friends. I will do my best to express her kindness and care.
- Ayaka Fukuhara as Sera
I read the original work, so I was very happy when it was decided that I would be appearing! You can feel both the fragility and toughness of life and it leaves a lasting impression in the hearts of those who read it. I think it’s such a wonderful work. Sera is a cool woman who fights knockers with everyone. I have carefully portrayed her nervousness!
- Chiharu Sawashiro as Sebas
My name is Chiharu Sawashiro and I will be playing the role of Sebas. I am very happy to be involved in this wonderful work. Sebas may be a bit naïve in some ways, but I get the impression that he is a character who works hard at what is right in front of him. I myself am looking forward to the broadcast! Please watch it, everyone!

To Your Eternity is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshitoki Ōima. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine since November 2016, with individual chapters collected by Kodansha into seventeen tankōbon volumes as of February 2022.
The story is about an immortal being, Fushi, who takes on multiple forms, including that of an abandoned white-haired village boy and his white wolf in order to stimulate as it learns what it is to be truly human.
Ōima, inspired by her own grandmother’s death, aimed to write about survival and the character Fushi, who initially is an emotionless stone but gradually develops a self and personality as a result of interacting with humans, young and old alike. In contrast to her previous work, A Silent Voice, To Your Eternity puts little focus on the cast’s past but instead, upon the future.
In North America, the manga is licensed by Kodansha USA for a digital and printed English release.
