Cast for anime DVD shipping in August differs from game version

Game developer Tohoku Penet announced the cast on Thursday for Gakuen Handsome the Animation, the anime adaptation of its popular boys-love game Gakuen Handsome.

The cast, which differs from the game version, is as follows:

Natsuki Hanae as Yoshiki Maeda

Ryohei Kimura as Sakuya Mitsurugi

Tetsuya Kakihara as Takuya Saotome

Kazunori Nomiya as Renji Kagami

Yuuto Suzuki as Teruhiro Saionji

Satoshi Tsuruoka as Shingo Shiga

Taiten Kusunoki as Jirō

Satomi Akesaka as Yū

The "school love story" is set at Baramon High School, a private boys' school for the prefecture's most elite. The protagonist transferred into the school and meets various major players on campus, such as the "outlaw teacher," the soccer captain, and a childhood friend whom the protagonist has not seen in seven years. The school presents opportunities for friendship, love, and conflict. The tagline of the game is, "Whenever you exited the school gates, you were handsome."

The game debuted on PC in 2010, and then Tohoku Penet ported it to iOS and Android devices in December 2013.

The Animate group and Liverpool's "Ani Pū" label will release Gakuen Handsome the Animation on DVD on August 28 for 2,980 yen (about US$25). Team YokkyuFuman is animating the project under the direction of Tohoku Penet. Those who pre-order the DVD will receive a "All CV Takuya version" of a prototype DVD.
