This year's 28th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Miyuki Sawashiro (Lupin the Third's Fujiko, Noragami's Bishamon) will join the cast of the Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches anime as Leona. She will first appear in the anime's 10th episode this Sunday, June 14.
The story begins when high school boy Yamada bumps into the beautiful female honor student Shiraishi on the stairs, and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.
Miki 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 a live-action television series that premiered in 2013.
The television anime premiered in April and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs. The manga's 15th compiled volume bundled the first anime DVD on December 17. The manga's 17th volume bundled the second OVA on May 15.
