Kyoto Animation updated its website on Friday to reveal that voice actresses Ayana Taketatsu and Minako Kotobuki are joining the cast of the ongoing Hyouka television anime. The Hyouka cast now boasts all five main voice actresses from Kyoto Animation's earlier K-ON! anime.
Honobu Yonezawa's original Hyouka novel follows an unassertive boy named Hōtarō (played by Yūichi Nakamura) who was ordered by his older sister to join the classic literature club (kotenbu). In the club, he gets close to the truth about a mystery that has been buried for 33 years.
Taketatsu and Kotobuki will play the manga club members Kimura and Henmi, respectively. Their fellow K-ON! castmember Satomi Satou plays the classic literature club member Eru Chitanda, while Aki Toyosaki and Yōko Hikasa play Rie Zenna and the quiz study group chair.
