The official website for Tsuritama, the latest project from director Kenji Nakamura (Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales, Mononoke, Kūchū Buranko, C), began streaming the series' second promotional video on Friday. The 30-second video introduces the anime's main characters and reveals five more cast members.
The new roles are:
- Emiri Katou as Koko
- Miina Tominaga as Misaki
- Yui Ogura as Sakura
- Nozomi Yamamoto as Erika

The SF (seishun/adolescent fishing) story is set on the island of Enoshima in the Shōnan area south of Tokyo, and it follows four idiosyncratic youths: the one-quarter French, uncommunicative high school student Yuki (Ryota Ohsaka), the fishing enthusiast and self-proclaimed alien Haru (Miyu Irino), the island native Natsuki (Kouki Uchiyama), and the mysterious Indian Akira (Tomokazu Sugita) with his constant duck companion Tapioca.
Yûichi Takahashi (Macross Frontier, Iron Vendetta) is adapting the original character designs by Atsuya Uki (Cencoroll). Toshiya Ono (Suite Precure, Eiga Suite Precure: Torimodose! Kokoro ga Tsunagu Kiseki no Melody) is in charge of the scripts. Kuricorder Quartet (Allison & Lillia) is composing the music, and the studio A-1 Pictures is animating the project.
The series will premiere on Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina timeslot on April 12.
