Magazine scans have revealed additional cast members for this spring's Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A television anime series.

Yui Ogura as Toki Onjōji
Kaori Ishihara as Ryūka Shimizudani
Arisa Noto as Sara Eguchi
Maho Matsunaga as Izumi Nijō
Manami as Hiroko Funakubo

The January issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine previously revealed the main cast for the series in December.

Aoi Yūki as Shizuno Takakamo
Kana Hanazawa as Kuro Matsumi
Nao Tōyama as Ako Atarashi
Mako as Yū Matsumi
Yumi Uchiyama Arata Sagimori

The anime adapts Aguri Igarashi's Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A manga, which is a spinoff of Ritz Kobayashi's original Saki high school mahjong manga. The story follows Shizuno Takakamo and the other mahjong players at the all-girls school Achiga.

The first Saki anime's Manabu Ono will once again direct at Studio Gokumi, which is composed of former staffers from Gonzo's fifth studio. Gonzo's fifth studio produced the first 14 episodes of the first Saki television anime in 2009, but Picture Magic took over for the rest of that earlier anime after Gonzo had to restructure.

Other returning staffers include assistant director Kenji Seto, series script editor and screenwriter Tatsuhiko Urahata, and character designer and chief animation director Masakatsu Sasaki. Bandai Visual's Lantis label will once again produce the music.
