This year's 20th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shonen Champion magazine revealed on Thursday that Natsuki Hanae will play the protagonist Asahi Kuromine in the television anime adaptation of Eiji Masuda's Jitsu wa Watashi wa ([Actually,] I Am) manga.
The main cast includes:
- Yū Serizawa as Yōko Shiragami
- Inori Minase as Nagisa Aizawa
- Reina Ueda as Mikan Akemi
- Aya Uchida as Shiho Shishido
- M.A.O as Akane Kōmoto
- Emi Nitta as Akari Kōmoto
Yasutaka Yamamoto (Squid Girl unit director, Hero Bank director) is directing the series at TMS Entertainment off of Kenichi Yamashita's (Space Brothers, Fresh Precure!) scripts. Hirotaka Marufuji (Nobunaga The Fool, Macross F) is designing the characters.
The romantic comedy centers around Asahi Kuromine, who has a crush on a cute girl named Yōko Shiragami. Shiragami just happens to be a vampire. Asahi cannot keep a secret, but he is determined to keep Shiragami's secret anyways.
Masuda launched the manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in 2013, and Akita Shoten published the 11th volume on April 8.
