Anime from Penguindrum's Kunihiko Ikuhara set to premiere in January

Three more cast members of the Yuri Kuma Arashi's anime have been announced on Tuesday.

  • Kazutomi Yamamoto as Life Beauty (green)
  • Mitsuki Saiga as Life Cool (blue)
  • Junichi Suwabe as Life Sexy (red)

Life Beauty's quote reads, "Love Moment! We are currently looking at Yuri as a threat. *Sparkle*," Life Cool's reads, "You have obviously eaten too much. You are yūzai, guilty!," and finally, Life Sexy's reads, "That's the sexy shaba-doo!"

The rest of the cast includes:

  • Miho Arakawa as Ginko Yurishiro (in red)
  • Yoshiko Ikuta as Ruru Yurigazaki (in green)
  • Nozomi Yamane as Kureha Tsubaki (in blue)

The series will premiere next January on MBS and other channels.

The "intellectual fantasy" follows Kureha, a "transparent" high school girl who is plain and is barely noticed by others. Seemingly every night, she has a "dream about a bear and a transparent storm." In this dream, her mysterious classmate Ginko Yurishiro appears in the form of a bear.

Kunihiko Ikuhara (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum) is directing the anime at the studio Silver Link, and Etsuko Sumimoto (animation director on Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie Part 3: Rebellion, Honey and Clover II) is adapting the original character designs by manga creator Akiko Morishima for animation.

Morishima also launched the manga version of the story in Gentosha Comics' Monthly Comic Birz magazine in February.
