2011 Hunter x Hunter Anime's Main Cast Listed

posted on by Egan Loo

The combined 35/36th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing the main cast of the 2011 television anime adaptation of Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter x Hunter manga on Monday:

Megumi Han (live-action Otomen) as Gon Freecss
Mariya Ise as Killua Zoldyck
Keiji Fujiwara as Leorio
Miyuki Sawashiro as Kurapika
Daisuke Namikawa as Hisoka

The same characters were played by the following cast members in the earlier 1999-2001 anime:

Junko Takeuchi as Gon Freecs 
Kanako Mitsuhashi as Killua Zaoldyeck 
Hozumi Gôda as Leorio 
Yuki Kaida as Kurapika 
Hiroki Takahashi as Hisoka 

The "definitive" new anime will premiere on NTV on October 2 and run every Sunday at 10:55 a.m. NTV opened a web page for the new anime, which will retell the manga's story from the beginning.

Hiroshi Koujina (Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin, Neuro - Supernatural Detective) will direct the anime at Madhouse (Death Note, NANA), and Atsushi Maekawa (Dragon Ball Z, Fresh Precure!) is in charge of the scripts. Takahiro Yoshimatsu ("Something Yoshimatsu" of Future GPX Cyber Formula, Slayers) is designing the characters, while Toshio Nakatani is producing.

Update: Link to Oricon page on Megumi Han added and Viz Media's spellings substituted. Thanks, RyanSaotome, Mr. Toto, and xScar.
