Drama CD's cast returns in fall TV adaptation of Asato Mizu's manga

The August issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine is announcing the main cast members for the television anime of Asato Mizu's Denki-gai no Honya-san (Electric Town Bookstore Worker) manga on Saturday. Most of the cast is reprising their roles from the 2013 drama CD.

The cast includes:

The magazine announced the anime's main staff members last month:

The anime is slated to premiere this fall.

The "youthful bookstore comedy" revolves around the folks who work in a manga shop deep in a certain "Electric Town" neighborhood. ("Denki-Gai" or "Electric Town" is a popular name for shopping areas that specialize or used to specialize in electric and electronic items, like Tokyo's Akihabara.) The protagonist Umio works part-time at "BOOKS Umanohone" along with his senior at work (but not in age) Hiotan. As many dedicated manga fans visit the store, there is always something going on.

Mizu launched the manga in Monthly Comic Flapper in 2011, and Kadokawa's Media Factory shipped the seventh compiled volume in Japan this past May.

Update: Ryota Ohsaka's name corrected. Thanks, phoenixalia
