The voice actor Yūki Ono (Kimi to Boku., Daily Lives of High School Boys) confirmed on his Twitter account on Saturday that he will play Zenkichi Hitoyoshi in the television anime adaptation of NisiOisin and Akira Akatsuki's Medaka Box manga. Aki Toyosaki (K-ON!, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) will star as Medaka Kurokami in the school fighting comedy. The roles were announced at Shueisha's Jump Festa event on Saturday.

Gainax is producing the adaptation while Shouji Saeki (Mahoromatic: Summer Special, This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, He Is My Master) is directing and editing the series scripts and Ikuo Kuwana (Street Fighter Alpha: Generations) is designing the characters. NisiOisin and Akatsuki launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2009, and Shueisha released the 13th compiled book volume on December 2.

The story follows Medaka, the strongest girl in Hanokiwa Academy, leads the school's student council. The student body can submit pleas for help, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, into the suggestion box that Medaka installed. Together with council members Zenkichi, Akune, Kikaijima, she takes on the challenges in the school that include supernatural powers and near-constant battles.
