The official website for the television anime adaptation of Tarō Tatsunoko's Mondai-Ji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sō Desu yo? (Don't Problem Children Come From an Alternate World?) fantasy comedy light novels announced the anime's lead cast on Thursday.
Shintarō Asanuma (Accel World's Takumu, Phi Brain's Kaito Daimon) will play the protagonist Izayoi Sakamaki, Iori Nomizu (Is This a Zombie?'s Haruna, Heaven's Lost Property's Nymph) will play Kuro Usagi, relative newcomer Emi Sarah Bridcut will play Asuka Kudō, Megumi Nakajima (Macross Frontier's Ranka Lee) will play Yō Kasukabe, Hiromi Igarashi (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!'s Hina) will play Jin Russell, and Satomi Arai (A Certain Magical Index's Kuroko Shirai, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan's Nattō Kozō) will play Shiroyasha.
The story follows Izayoi Sakamaki, a boy bored with the entire world. One day, an envelope arrives for him. The moment Izayoi opens the envelope, he is transported to an alternate world. There, he discovers that two other "problem children" were transported by envelopes as well — a taciturn girl named Yō Kasukabe with a cat, and a beautiful yet haughty girl named Asuka Kudō. A girl named Kuro Usagi (Black Rabbit) summoned the three to the community "No Name" to overthrow the devil.
Keizou Kusakawa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series and films, Asura Cryin') will serve as chief director, and Yasutaka Yamamoto (Squid Girl Season 2, Valkyria Chronicles) is serving as director. Noboru Kimura (Amagami SS+, Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos) is handling the series composition, and Naomi Ide (episode animation director for Astarotte's Toy, Squid Girl) is handling the character design. Diomedea (Squid Girl, Campione!) will animate the series.
The series will premiere in January 2013.
