July anime about female performers from Zetsubō-sensei & Toshidora creators

The June issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine is announcing the cast of the Joshiraku television anime on Wednesday:

Ayane Sakura as Marii Buratei
Kotori Koiwai as Kigurumi Harōkitei
Nozomi Yamamoto as Tetora Bōhatei
Yoshino Nanjou as Gankyō Kūrubiyūtei
Saori Goto as Kukuru Anrakutei

Only Saori Goto is returning from the previous drama CD adaptation of the original manga by Kôji Kumeta (Sayonara, Zetsubō-sensei, Katteni Kaizō) and Yasu (Toradora, Mangirl!). The CD cast included Kana Asumi, Erena Ono, Ikumi Hayama, and Kana Hanazawa.

The manga follows the behind-the-scenes dressing-room conversations of a group of female (joshi) Japanese verbal show (rakugo) performers. Kumeta and Yasu launched the manga in the inaugural issue of Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and Kodansha shipped the manga's third book volume last October.

The anime will premiere in Japan in July.
