Yoshimasa Hosoya, Risa Taneda, Asami Seto, More Join Strike the Blood Anime Cast

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Rina Hidaka, Ryota Ohsaka, Hisako Kanemoto also join cast for anime adaptation of Gakuto Mikumo's light novels

The official website for the anime adaptation of Gakuto Mikumo's Strike the Blood light novel series announced the cast for the anime on Tuesday:

  • Yoshimasa Hosoya as Kojō Akatsuki
  • Rise Taneda as Yukino Himeragi
  • Asami Seto as Asagi Aiba
  • Rina Hidaka as Nagisa Akatsuki
  • Ryota Ohsaka as Motoki Yaze
  • Hisako Kanemoto as Natsuki Minamiya

Animation studios Silver Link (Penguindrum, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, WATAMOTE) and CONNECT (in-between animation for Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S, Sword Art Online) are animating the project. Hideyo Yamamoto (The Prince of Tennis II) is directing, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Guilty Crown, Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic) is handling the scripts. Keiichi Sano (Heaven's Memo Pad, Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru: Futari no Elder) is designing the characters.

Mikumo's Asura Cryin' and The Mystic Archives of Dantalian light novels also inspired anime.

The school action fantasy story of Strike the Blood revolves around Kojō Akatsuki, a boy deemed the world's most powerful vampire (once thought to only exist in legend and lore), and Yukina Hirameki, a girl entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.

The anime will premiere on Japanese television in October.
