Key visual, broadcast stations also revealed for series premiering in July

The official website for the television anime of Sekina Aoi and illustrator Saboten's Gamers! light novel series revealed the show's main cast, theme song artists, new key visual, and broadcast stations on Saturday.

The anime stars:

Megumi Han as Keita Amano


Hisako Kanemoto as Karen Tendo


Manaka Iwami as Chiaki Hoshinomori


Rumi Ookubo as Aguri


Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Tasuku Uehara


Voice actresses Kanemoto, Iwami, and Ookubo are performing the show's opening theme song. The five-member female unit Luce Twinkle Wink☆ (And you thought there is never a girl online?, Urara Meirochō) are performing the ending theme song.

The anime will premiere in July and it will have 12 episodes. The series will air in Japan on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, BS11, and AT-X.

Manabu Okamoto (The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- storyboards and episode director) is directing the anime at PINE JAM. Hiroki Uchida (Ultraman X, Ultraman Orb) is handling the series composition, and Tensho Sato (Fafner, The Devil is a Part-Timer! key animator) is drawing the character designs for animation.

The romantic comedy light novel series centers on the gaming lives of various high school students who play video games, including: Keita Amano, a lonely young man who loves video games; Karen Tendō, the beautiful president of the video game club; Chiaki Hoshinomori, who constantly fights with Keita; and Tasuku Uehara, who puts on a facade of being satisfied with his life in the real world, but he in truth loves video games.

Aoi and Saboten launched the novel series in 2014, and Kadokawa released the seventh novel on March 18. Tsubasa Takahashi launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine on October 26.

Aoi's previous Seitokai no Ichizon light novel series inspired The Student Council's Discretion television anime series in 2009, and the Student Council's Discretion Lv. 2 television anime series in 2012. Sentai Filmworks released the first anime on home video in March 2015, and released the second anime in May 2015.

Update: Fixed manga information. Thanks, Shiroi Hane.
