Media Factory's MF Bunko J imprint listed the cast for the Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imōto ga Iru! (One of Them Is My Younger Sister!) franchise on its "Natsu no Gakuensai" ("Summer School Festival") website on Saturday. Hajime Taguchi's original light novels are inspiring an television anime this summer. MF Bunko J's website states that the following cast members will appear at a stage event during the July 29 festival in Tokyo:
- Kaori Ishihara as Konoe Tsuruma
- Ayane Sakura as Miyabi Kannagi
- Ayana Taketatsu as Rinka Kunitachi
- Asuka Ōgame as Mana Tendō
- Rina Hidaka as Mei Sagara
Ishihara's voice actress group StylipS will also appear at the event.
Hajime Taguchi's original light novels center around Shōgo Mikadono, the son of an industrial magnate named Kumagorō Mikadono who passed away. As a final wish, Kumagorō gave Shōgo a condition before Shōgo can inherit the family legacy — find a female mate at school. Shōgo transfers into a school to fulfill that condition. However, he learns that he has a younger sister who was separated at birth. He does not know what his long-lost sister looks like, but she happens to be one of the students at his new school.
Taguchi launched the light novel series in 2010, and the sixth volume shipped in March. Munenori Nawa (R-15, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu) will direct the series, and Go Zappa (Chocotto Sister, Koihime Musō) will be responsible for the series scripts. Kenichirou Katsura (Macross 7, ToHeart2) is adapting the original novel illustrations by CUTEG (Kokoro Connect manga) for animation. Katsura is also the chief animation director for the project at Studio Gokumi (Oda Nobuna no Yabō, Koe de Oshigoto!).
The Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imōto ga Iru! anime will premiere on Japanese television in July.
