Invaders of the Rokujyōma!? Anime's 2nd Promo Previews Opening Theme

posted on by Karen Ressler
Series about an apartment full of supernatural girls slated for July

The official website for the anime of Takehaya's Rokujyōma no Shinryakusha!? (Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) light novel series began streaming the second promotional video, which premiered at Tokyo University's May Day Festival, on Sunday. The video features the opening theme song "Kōkan win-win Mujōken" by Heart Invader, a group made up of four of the lead voice actresses Eri Suzuki, Hikari Omori, Masumi Tazawa, and Maria Naganawa.

The video introduces the cast:

Yūichi Nakamura as Kōtarō Satōmi, a high school first year

Eri Suzuki as the ghost Sanae Higashihongan

Hikari Omori as the self-professed magical girl Yurika Nijino

Masumi Tazawa as the underground dweller Kiriha Kurano

Ayana Taketatsu as Karama, a haniwa (clay grave figure)

Aoi Yūki as Korama, another haniwa

Maria Naganawa as the space alien Theiamillis Gre Fortorthe

Saori Hayami as Ruthkania Nai Paldomushiiha (Ruth), the leader of Theia's guards

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Kenji Matsudaira, a handsome childhood friend of Kōtarō's

Megumi Takamoto as Harumi Sakuraba, Kōtarō's sickly upperclassman and president of the knitting research club

Aya Suzaki as Shizuka Kasagi, Kōtarō's classmate and the landlord of the Corona complex who lives in room 206

The "apartment comedy" centers around Kōtarō Satōmi, a boy who started to live by himself to attend a high school. He fortunately discovered a very cheap, tiny (six-mat or rokujyōma) room for 5,000 yen (about US$50) a month, and began his new life there. However, when he moved into that room 106 in the Korona complex, some unexpected "roommates" began appearing one by one.

Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, ef: a tale of melodies) will direct the anime at animation Studio Silver Link (Dusk maiden of Amnesia, Kokoro Connect), and original creator Takehaya will serve as series director. Poko provided the original character designs, and Hideki Furukawa will adapt the character designs for the anime, and will also act as storyboard director. Shogo Yasukawa will handle series composition, Ryosuke Nakanishi will score the soundtrack, and Zero-A will produce the music. Yūki and Taketatsu's musical unit petit milady is contributing their third single as the anime's ending theme song.

Takehaya launched the light novel series with illustrations by Poco in 2009, and Hobby Japan will publish the 16th volume in July. Tomosane Ariike started a manga adaptation on Hobby Japan's Comic Dangan website last December. The light novels already inspired an original promotional movie with some animated footage by director Shinichi Watanabe and SILVER LINK in 2010.

The anime series will premiere in July.
