This year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is announcing the main cast for the upcoming television anime of Himōto! Umaru-chan on Thursday.
The cast includes:
- Aimi Tanaka as Umaru Doma
- Yurina Furukawa as Sylphynford Tachibana
- Haruka Shiraishi as Kirie Motoba
- Akari Kageyama as Nana Ebina
The sibling gag comedy manga centers around Umaru, Taihei's little sister who boasts beautiful looks as well as prowess in both school and sports. However, "Himōto" (beautiful little sister) has a certain secret.
Masahiko Ohta (Yuruyuri, Kotoura-san) is directing the series off scripts by Takashi Aoshima (Yuruyuri, Kotoura-san) at Doga Kobo (Engaged to the Unidentified, Laughing Under the Clouds). Yasunori Ebina (Yuruyuri, Fruits Basket) is serving as sound director and Aya Takano (Polar Bear's Café) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director.
Sankaku Head launched the manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two-chapter Himōto! Umaru-chan! version in Miracle Jump in 2012), and Shueisha published the fifth compiled book volume on March 19.
The anime will premiere in July.
