The upcoming TV animation adaptation of Hiroya Oku's Inuyashiki manga is looking for voice actors to play the role of online netizens.
Three applicants will play the role of a "2channeler." Successful candidates will be compensated with 50,000 yen (approximately US$457), travel expenses covered, signed merchandise by cast present on the day of recording, and a character credit in the show.
Applicants should be themselves a "2channeler," aiming for the "second!!" spot, and have an interest in trolling. Recording begins in early September.
The application period is between August 10 and August 23. Interested parties can apply through the listing on the job search website An(an)baito.
The television anime series will premiere in October on Fuji TV's Noitamina block. Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Gantz:O, Rage of Bahamut: Genesis) is the chief director of the series at studio MAPPA. Shuhei Yabuta (3D director for Iron Man, High School of the Dead, Attack on Titan) is directing the series.
Oku launched the manga in Kodansha's Evening magazine in January 2014, and Kodansha published the manga's eighth volume in Japan on January 23. The manga is also inspiring a live-action film that will debut in 2018.
