Ai Kayano, Ayane Sakura, Ari Ozawa join cast for April anime

The official website for the television anime of Chihiro Ishizuka's Flying Witch manga added the cast for the three familiar characters for the anime. They are:

Ai Kayano as Chito, Makoto's familiar, a smart 17-year old cat who is older than her.


Ayane Sakura as Kenny, Akane's familiar, who is knowledgeable about anthropology and archaeology.


Ari Ozawa as Aru, Inukai's hamster familiar, who sometimes helps her in her fortune-telling.


The previously-announced cast includes:

Minami Shinoda as Makoto Kowata


Eri Suzuki as Chinatsu Kuramoto, Makoto's cousin who lives with her in the Kuramoto household


Shinsuke Sugawara as Kei Kuramoto, Chinatsu's older brother

Kana Aoi as Akane Kowata, Makoto's older sister


Shiori Mikami as Nao Ishiwatari, Makoto's classmate


Mari Hino as Inukai, Akane's witch friend


Yuka Iguchi as Anzu Shiina, a witch


The website previously streamed the anime's promotional video earlier this month.

The comical story follows the 15-year-old witch Makoto Kowata and the other boys and girls in her daily life. With her black cat Chito, the somewhat aimless girl moved from Yokohama to live with her second cousin in Aomori in verdant northern Japan.

Katsushi Sakurabi (Gunparade March, Heaven's Memo Pad, Lunar Legend Tsukihime) is directing the anime at the studio J.C. Staff, and Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Noragami, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, Snow White with the Red Hair) is in charge of the series scripts. Masato Yasuno (episode animation director on Little Busters!, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) is designing the characters.

Ishizuka launched the manga in the September 2012 issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine (Attack on Titan, The Heroic Legend of Arslan), and Kodansha published the third compiled volume last April. The fourth volume will ship on April 8.
