Attack on Titan/Gurren Lagann voice actor to play Yuda

The official website for the television anime of Imōto Yukito, Yūshi Kawata, and Yukito's Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji (Fist of the North Star: Strawberry Flavor) manga revealed on Monday that Kishô Taniyama (Attack on Titan's Jean, Gurren Lagann's Kittan) will play Yuda.

The website is revealing a new cast member and character line art every day until August 25. The website will reveal the voice and line art for Shin on Tuesday.

The previously-revealed cast members include:

Junichi Suwabe (Fate/stay night's Archer, Space Dandy's Dandy) as Shū

Kousuke Toriumi (Naruto's Kiba, Yowamushi Pedal's Imaizumi) as Rei

Banjou Ginga will return to the franchise to play Souther. Ginga played Souther in the original Fist of the North Star television anime series.

The anime will premiere this fall.

Buronson and Tetsuo Hara — the creators of the original Fist of the North Star post-apocalyptic fighting manga — are credited with the original work for Hokuto no Ken: Ichigo Aji. Kawata writes the manga's scenarios, Imōto Yukito draws the manga, and Yukito is credited with collaboration.

The gag manga centers on a fun version of the Holy Emperor Souther as he tries to find ways to become friends with Kenshirō, demonstrates his party techniques, and sometimes plays with the Gosha Sei.

Imōto Yukito, Yukito, and Kawata launched the manga on Tokuma Shoten's Web Comic Zenyon website in 2013, and the publisher shipped the fourth compiled volume (pictured at right) in June.
