Junjō Romantica Season 3 Reveals More Cast, Staff, Theme Songs

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Nana Mizuki, Noriko Namiki, Kishô Taniyama, more reprise roles in boys-love anime

The spring issue of Kadokawa's Emerald magazine announced new staff, cast, and theme songs for Junjō Romantica 3, the upcoming third season of the Junjō Romantica boys-love anime on Thursday.

The additional cast members, all reprising their roles from previous seasons, are as follows:

  • Nana Mizuki as Kaoruko Usami
  • Noriko Namiki as Eri Aikawa
  • Kishô Taniyama as Takahiro Takahashi
  • Kousuke Toriumi as Haruhiko Usami
  • Juurouta Kosugi as Fuyuhiko Usami

Takahiro Sakurai and Hikaru Hanada are also returning to their lead roles as Misaki Takahashi and Akihiko Usami, respectively.

Chiaki Kon is once again directing at Studio DEEN with Yoko Kikuchi designing characters. MOKA* (Kayo Konishi, Yukio Kondoo) is also returning to compose the music with Lantis producing. The rest of the staff includes:

  • Art Director: Hiromu Itou, Yuki Umino
  • Color design: Saori Yoshida
  • Director of Photography: Junko Sakai
  • Editing: Masahiro Matsumura
  • Sound director: Hozumi Gôda
  • Sound effects: Noriko Izumo

The magazine also revealed details on the opening and ending themes of the anime. The band Fo'xTails will perform the show's opening theme "Innocent Graffiti," while the band Luck Life will perform the ending song "Kawaranai Sora."

The manga already inspired two anime seasons in 2008, and Right Stuf licensed both for North America.

The second Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi anime series included an adaptation of Nakamura's Junjō Romantica manga spinoff Junjō Mistake, and there was also a Junjō Romantica original video anime in 2012. An original video animation volume of Nakamura's one-shot Hybrid Child debuted last year.

A Blu-ray Disc box (visual shown above) with all 24 episodes from the first two seasons, the original video anime, and footage from the 10th anniversary event in December 2012 will ship in Japan on June 26.

The new season will premiere in Japan in July.
