posted on by Jennifer Sherman
An official website for the television anime adaptation of Kazusa Yoneda's Danchigai (Big Difference) four-panel manga launched on Friday and announced the main cast. The anime is slated to premiere in July.
The main cast members are:
- Satomi Akesaka as Mutsuki Nakano
- Mikako Komatsu as Yayoi Nakano
- Sora Tokui as Uzuki Nakano
- Sayaka Horino as Satsuki Nakano
- Atsushi Abe as Haruki Nakano
Akesaka and Horino will participate in a talk show event at Ichijinsha's booth at AnimeJapan 2015. The convention will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight complex from March 20 to March 22.
The anime reunites some of the core staff from the Military! television anime. Hiroshi Kimura (Military!, Recorder and Randsell, Hamatora) is directing the series at Creators in Pack TOKYO. Eriko Ito (Hamatora, Ane Log) is designing the characters, and Dream Creation is producing the series. Masakatsu Oomuro (Military!, I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying) is directing sound production at Dax Production.
The comedy manga follows the everyday lives of five siblings—four sisters and one brother—who share a multi-unit apartment (danchi). Mutsuki has a level-headed personality. Haruki likes video games, while Yayoi likes exercise. Uzuki and Satsuki are twins.
Yoneda (Little Busters! manga adaptation) began the series in Manga 4-Koma Palette June 2011, and the third compiled volume is slated to ship in April. The manga's third online chapter debuted on Ichijinsha's Manga 4-Koma Palette Online website on Tuesday.
