posted on by Karen Ressler
Japanese manga news website Comic Natalie announced the cast for the upcoming anime adaptation of Kenji Hamaoka's comedy manga Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku this Thursday. The cast thus far includes no actors reprising roles from the 1998 anime based on Hamaoka's first Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku (Super Radical Gag Family) manga, but Kazuya Ichijou, who played Haruo in the original series, will now play Daitetsu.
The cast includes:
- Suzuko Mimori (Love Live! School idol project's Umi) as Kotetsu Ōsawagi
- Kazuya Ichijou (Outbreak Company's Prime Minister Zahaal) as Daitetsu Ōsawagi
- Kanako Toujô (From the New World's Satoru Asahina) as Junko Ōsawagi
- Izumi Kitta (Watamote's Tomoko) as Sakura Ōsawagi
Hamaoka stated that the run-time for the new series will be half what it was last time. The previous series featured seven-minute episodes.
Akitaro Daichi (Fruits Basket, Kodocha, Now and Then, Here and There) will direct the the series at Studio Deen. Daichi previously directed the 1998 series.
The slapstick gag comedy follows a second-grade boy named Kotetsu Ōsawagi and his misadventures with his family and friends in Urayasu City, near Tokyo.
Hamaoka launched the original Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku (Super Radical Gag Family) manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in 1993. The 31-volume manga spawned two sequels: the 28-volume Ganso! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku from 2002 to 2010, and the current Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku which began in 2010.
The anime will premiere on July 6.
