The original anime DVD bundled with Miki Yoshikawa's 15th Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches (Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo) manga volume revealed on Wednesday that Tomokazu Sugita (Gintama, Macross Frontier), Yūki Ono (Kuroko's Basketball, Durarara!!×2) and Mai Nakahara (Clannad, Fairy Tail) joined the cast for the Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches (Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo) anime projects. Sugita plays second-year student Hideaki Tsurukawa, Ono plays second-year student Mitsuru Kameda, and Nakahara plays second-year student and archery team head Karen Kimishima.

The cast already includes:

Tomoki Takuno ([email protected]: XENOGLOSSIA, Love Live! School idol project episode director) is directing anime at LIDEN FILMS with assistant director Fumiaki Usui. Michiko Yokote is writing and supervising the series scripts. Eriko Iida (Love Live! School idol project episode animation director) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Yota Tsuruoka (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the sound director, and Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music.

The manga's 15th compiled volume bundled the first anime DVD on December 17. The manga's 17th volume will bundle the second OVA and ship on May 15, 2015. (These anime will feature an original story and include hot spring scenes.) The television anime will also premiere next spring.

Yoshikawa launched the manga in 2012, and the series is currently running in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Crunchyroll is releasing manga chapters online overseas as they are published in Japan. The manga already inspired two promotional videos, including one that announced the original anime DVD project.

The manga features cameos by characters from Yoshikawa's earlier Yankee-kun to Megane-chan manga, which inspired a live-action television series. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo already inspired a live-action television adaptation that premiered in 2013.
