The staff of the television anime adaptation of Yume Mizusawa's Ore, Twin Tail ni Narimasu. (I, Will Become a Twin Tail.) light novel series unveiled the cast for the series on Saturday. The announcement was first made at the TBS Anime Festa event on the same day.
The anime's cast will star Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!, Pupa) as protagonist Sōji Mitsuka, Maaya Uchida (Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live, Norgami) as heroine Thouars, Chinatsu Akasaki (Tari Tari, Love Lab) as Erina Shindō, M.A.O (Futsū no Joshikōsei ga Locodol Yattemita, Z/X Ignition) as Mikoto Sakuragawa, and Yōko Hikasa (K-ON!, Majestic Prince) as Isna. In addition, Tessho Genda will star as Lizadgildy, Tetsu Inada will join the cast as Draggildy, and Sumire Uesaka will play the role of Tail Red, Sōji's alternate form.
Maaya Uchida will perform the anime's opening theme song, titled "Gimme! Revolution." The single containing the song will ship in Japan on October 22. The ending theme single will be released on the same day, and will be performed by the voice actresses of the three main heroines.
The story centers around Sōji Mitsuka, an ordinary high school boy who happens to have an obsession for twin-tail hair. One day, a mysterious beautiful girl named Thouars (Tuaaru) appears before him from a parallel world. At the same time, monsters appear in his town, and they declare that all twin-tails in the world belong to them.
These monsters feed off the "attribute power," the spiritual energy of humans. Thouars entrusted Sōji with Tail Gear, imaginary armor initiated by powerful Twin-Tail attributes. With the armor, Sōji transforms into Tail Red, a twin-tail warrior girl, to protect Earth.
Hiroyuki Kanbe (Oreimo) is directing the series, and Naruhisa Arakawa (Outbreak Company, MAOYU, Spice & Wolf) is in charge of series composition. Kazuaki Morita (Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Danganronpa) is adapting Ayumu Kasuga's original character designs. The series is being animated at Production IMS (Sora no Otoshimono Final: Eternal My Master, Date A Live II).
