Jun Fukuyama, Mamiko Noto Join Genshiken: 2nd Season Cast

posted on by Egan Loo

The official website for the Genshiken: Second Season anime announced still more new cast members for Manabu Kuchiki, Kanji Sasahara, Makoto Kōsaka, Sōichirō Tanaka, Mitsunori Kugayama, Keiko Sasahara, Kumiko Yabusaki, Naoko Asada, and Kaminaga on Saturday. Most of these characters have different voice cast members from the earlier Genshiken anime:

Shimoku Kio's sequel manga Genshiken: Second Season continues the adventures of the otaku college club "The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture." Kodansha Comics published the second volume of this manga in North America in March. Del Rey released the first Genshiken manga series as well as the Kujibiki Unbalance spinoff in North America. Media Blasters licensed the first two Genshiken television anime series, the Genshiken videos, and the Kujibiki Unbalance anime.

Tsutomu Mizushima (Girls und Panzer, Squid Girl, xxxHOLiC, Genshiken OAV, episode director on first Genshiken) is serving as both director and sound director at Production I.G for the new anime. Michiko Yokote is returning from the previous Genshiken projects to supervise the series scripts, and Junichirō Taniguchi (Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san, Natsuyuki Rendezvous, Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku) is the new character designer.

In addition to playing Rika Yoshitake, Uesaka will sing the opening theme song "Genshi, Joshi wa, Taiyō Datta" for the summer anime.

The anime will premiere in July.
