Hiroaki Hirata, KENN star as siblings in April TV anime adaptation

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Chūya Koyama's Space Brothers (Uchū Kyōdai) manga began streaming the series' first promotional video on Tuesday.

Ayumu Watanabe, director and animation director for various Doraemon anime films, will serve as the series' director. The main cast will include Hiroaki Hirata as Mutta Nanba, KENN as Hibito Nanba, Masako Ikeda as Sharon, and Miyuki Sawashiro as Serika Itō. A separate live-action film adaptation starring Shun Oguri and Masaki Okada will open in Japan on May 5.

The manga's story follows two brothers, Mutta and Hibito, who made a vow as kids to travel to space. The younger brother Hibito did become an astronaut, but not Mutta. However, Mutta's life changes one fateful day.

The anime will premiere in Japan on April 1, and a new episode will air every Sunday at 7:00 a.m.
