posted on by Tiara Hamilton
This year's September issue of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine is announcing on Saturday that voice actors Chinatsu Akasaki ( Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!' Shinka) and Tetsuya Kakihara (Fairy Tail's Natsu) will join the cast of the anime of Fumiaki Maruto's Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata light novel as Izumi Hashima and Iori Hashima, respectively.
Previously announced cast members include:
- Saori Onishi (Senki Zesshō Symphogear G 's Ayumi, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou's Shiho) as Eriri Spencer Sawamura
- Ai Kayano (Anohana's Menma, Guilty Crown's Inori) as Utaha Kasumigaoka
- Sayuri Yahagi (To Love-Ru's Haruna Sairenji, Hayate the Combat Butler's Izumi Segawa) as Michiru Hyōdō
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sword Art Online's Kirito, Buddy Complex's Aoba Watase) as Tomoya Aki
The original light novels with illustrations by Kurehito Misaki revolve around Tomoya Aki, an otaku who is working part-time to earn enough money to buy anime on Blu-Ray, who meets a beautiful girl on his way home during spring vacation. He eventually models the heroine of his own dojin game after her. However, he finds out a month later that the girl is in fact his classmate, and he doesn't know her name. He learns that the girl — named Megumi — actually is hardly noticed by others. Tomoya also has no artistic ability or writing skills, so he asks ace of the art club Eriri Spencer Sawamura to provide the art, as well as the honor student Utaha Kasumigaoka to write the scenario. Can they produce a decent game for Comic Market?
Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Nanana's Buried Treasure, Oreshura, Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Maruto (White Album 2) is, himself, writing the scripts and Hajime Hyakkoku (K-ON!, GJ Club) of F.M.F is composing the music.
The anime will premiere next January in Fuji TV's Noitamina block.
