posted on by Egan Loo
The cast and staff of the Himegoto television anime were announced on Tuesday.
- Yūki Kuwahara as Hime Arikawa
- Yuka Matenrō (Yuka Saotome) as 18-Kin-san ("Rated 18+-san")
- Saki Ono as President Unko
- Hisako Tōjō as Beru-sempai (Albertina)
The female castmembers, under the name Ai Mai Mii Main ("I My Me Mine"), will perform the opening and ending theme songs.
Takeyuki Yanase (animation director on Excel Saga, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is directing the anime at Asahi Production, and Kazuho Hyodo (Robot Girls Z, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World) is writing the scripts. Masaaki Sakurai (Demonbane, G-Taste, Nozoki Ana) is designing the characters.
The anime will premiere on the BS11 and other channels in July, and it will also stream on the niconico service in Japan.
The story follows Hime Arikawa, a boy who is being chased down by scary people. However, he is rescued from danger by the girls in his school's student council — 18-Kin-san, President Unko, and Beru-sempai. The student council will assume Arikawa's debt under one condition: "As the student council's dog, you will spend your high school life in women's clothes."
Tsukudani launched the manga in Ichijinsha's WAaI! magazine in 2011, and the manga also ran in Ichijinsha's Zōkan WAaI! Mahalo and Monthly Comic Rex magazines.
