Japanese television channel BS11 began running a commercial for Yozakura Quartet ~Hana no Uta~, the new anime adaptation of Suzuhito Yasuda's Yozakura Quartet manga. The commercial previews the opening theme song "Sakura no Ato (all quartets lead to the?)" by UNISON SQUARE GARDEN.
Yozakura Quartet ~Hana no Uta's staff is different from the 2008 anime series, but the same as the Yozakura Quartet ~Hoshi no Umi~ and Yozakura Quartet ~Tsuki ni Naku~ OVAs. Ryo-timo is designing the characters and directing the anime at Tatsunoko Productions. Kiyotaka Suzuki is serving as assistant director while Manabu Ishikawa is in charge of the scripts.
New members to the anime's voice cast are Yoko Hikasa (K-ON, Senki Zesshō Symphogear G) as Nadeshiko Matsudaira, Nobuhiko Okamoto (A Certain Magical Index, Bakuman.) as Rokkaku, and Ai Kayano as V. Lila F. Yuuki Ono (Daily Lives of High School Boys, The Devil is a Part-Timer!) will replace Hideki Tasaka from the original Yozakura Quartet TV anime.
The rest of the cast include:
- Misato Fukuen as Hime Yarizakura
- Yuuki Kaji as Akina Hiizumi
- Saki Fujita as Ao Nanami
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Kotoha Isone
- Daisuke Ono as Kyōsuke Kishi
- Haruka Tomatsu as Tōka Kishi
Japanese rock band phatmans after school contributes the ending theme "Tsukiyomi." A preview screening of the new television series' first episode will be held in Tokyo on September 28, and the anime is scheduled to premiere on Japanese television on October 6. (BS11 will debut the anime on October 8.)
