posted on by Karen Ressler

The official website for the Classroom Crisis anime unveiled more cast members and a new promotional video on Friday. The video features the ending theme song "Anemone" by ClariS.

The new cast members are:

Kazuhiko Inoue as Kazuhisa Kiryū, the corporation's youthful representative director and president whose managerial abilities are regarded favorably by other executives.

Hiroyuki Yoshino as Yūji Kiryū, a senior managing director of the corporation and the younger brother of Kazuhisa.

Tomomichi Nishimura as Seigō Sasayama, the head of the corporation's advanced technologies development division (A-TEC) and the principal of the technical high school.

The previously announced cast includes:

Showtaro Morikubo as Kaito Sera, a young hot-blooded teacher and room monitor who works for A-TEC. A natural-born engineer, he dreams of creating a new engine with his students. It seems like he'd be popular with the students because of his closeness in age, but once he gets going on an impassioned speech he can be annoying.

Ari Ozawa as Mizuki Sera, a third-year student and engineer who works for A-TEC. She lives with her big brother Kaito and does all the housework. She decided to become an engineer to follow in the footsteps of her late parents. She's a member of her class committee and dresses maturely.

Sora Amamiya as Iris Shirasaki, a third-year student and poster girl test pilot for A-TEC. Not just a figurehead, she can boast incredible flying skills. However, she's not very safety-conscious, and even drives her bike recklessly during her commute, setting a new "course record" every day. Her friend Mizuki is always telling her to be careful.

Aya Suzaki as Tsubasa Hanaoka, a second-year high school student who is always full of spirit and is in charge of publicity and promotion for A-TEC. She was chosen for her position with A-TEC because of her characteristic cheerful personality and communication skills. Even though Kaito is her homeroom teacher and superior, she calls him "Kaitocchi." But despite her relaxed manner, she does respect him.

Shiina Natsukawa as Aki Kaminagaya, a second-year student in charge of engine maintenance for A-TEC. She is attracted to the senior engineer Kaito. As an engine maintenance worker, she assists Kaito and Mizuki. Aki has a strong enthusiasm for mechanics, and she tends to work all night without noticing. She is a bit of a workaholic.

Minami Tsuda as Makoto Ryouke, a third-year student and classmate to Mizuki and Iris. At A-TEC she's responsible for ordering materials for aircraft construction. She has a big sister-like personality and stays calm in unexpected situations. She often plays the straightman to her classmate Kojiro.

Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Kojiro Kitahara, a third-year student and aircraft designer who works at A-TEC. He acts mature around his classmates Iris and Mizuki, but has a nebulous personality. Besides Kaito, the only boys at A-TEC are Kojiro, Sakugo, and Subaru, and the three are often doing stupid things together.

Yoshino Nanjou as Subaru Yamaki, a first-year student and A-TEC employee in charge of combustion experiments. He has an androgynous appearance and usually wears a lab coat and a uniform with short pants. When he's quiet he's mistaken for a girl. When he opens his mouth he's a confident and impertinent little devil.

Takayuki Kondou as Sakugo Maioka, a second-year student and IT supervisor at A-TEC. He tries to be nihilistic but he goes in the wrong direction. He has a hunch that makes him seem like an otaku. But his data processing and hacking skills can be relied on in a pinch.

Yui Horie as Kaoruko Takanashi, a first-year student and operator at A-TEC. She's the youngest girl at A-TEC, and her timidity and delicate constitution make her loved by all, to the point of being their mascot. She handles communication during flight testing of prototypes, but she's normally helping Makoto order supplies.

Kana Asumi as Yuna Nouen, a second-year student and accountant at A-TEC. She keeps a tight control over the budget, and is always giving A-TEC members a hard time for wasting what they've been allowed for rocket development.

Aniplex of America will stream the series in North America and describes the series:

Fourth Tokyo--one of Japan's new prefectures on Mars. Kirishina City, Fourth Tokyo's special economic zone, is home to the Kirishina Corporation, an elite corporation renowned for its aerospace business. The company has been expanding its market share in various industries, while also running a private school, the Kirishina Science and Technology Academy High School. That alone would make it unique, but there's also a high-profile class on campus.

Devoting themselves to their studies during the day, they then report to the company after school to take part in a crucial project, the development of prototype variants for rockets. This is the Kirishina Corporation's Advanced Technological Development Department, Educational Development Class, a.k.a. A-TEC. A-TEC's chief, the young engineering genius, Kaito Sera, is also the homeroom teacher of the A-TEC students attending the academy, affectionately (?) known as the Raving Rocket Teacher.

The story begins with the arrival of a transfer student to A-TEC.

The A-TEC members are ready to welcome their new classmate, but the student in question is kidnapped en route to Mars. Determining that they themselves will have to be the ones to overcome this crisis, Kaito and the A-TEC students embark on an unprecedented rescue mission.

Go! 575) is designing the characters with animation director Satoshi Ishino, and Fumiaki Maruto (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, White Album 2) is in charge of scripts.
