In addition, Nobuyuki Hiyama (Eden of the East) will playYoshiteru Zaimokuza, while Ryoka Yuzuki will play Shizuka Hiratsuka. Ai Yoshimura (episode director on Gintama, Oreimo) will be directing the series at Brains Base, while Shôtarô Suga (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne) will be supervising the scripts, and Masaru Shindō (animation director on Penguindrum, Sengoku Collection) will be handling character designs.
