The official website for the television anime adaptation of author Ipyao and artist Yūjirō Koyama's Tonkatsu DJ Agetarō manga unveiled a new visual and the main cast for the anime on Thursday.

The anime's cast includes:

Daiki Yamashita as Agetarō Katsumata

Kouji Ishii as Agesaku Katsumata

Kenjiro Tsuda as Shūgo Oshibori

Keiji Fujiwara as DJ Oily

M.A.O as Sonoko Hattori

Takashi Matsuyama as Gorō Mizokuro

Chafurin as DJ Big Master Fly


The anime is premiering in April.

Akitarō Daichi (Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san, Fruits Basket) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night, Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage, Umineko - When They Cry). Daisuke Fujiwara of MU-STARS will produce the music.

The gag manga follows Agetarō Katsumata, a stupid but honest guy whose family has run a tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant for three generations. He's also a beginner club DJ.

The manga series began weekly serialization on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in November 2014. Shortly after it debuted, a panel from the comic went viral. The panel features the main character having an epiphany that "tonkatsu cooks and DJs are the same" and makes a pun on "flyer" (for an event) and "fryer" (at a restaurant).

The manga is also serialized monthly in Shueisha's Men's Non No fashion magazine. Shueisha published the fifth compiled volume of the manga on January 4.
