The official website for the TV anime adaptation of Rurū Minase's Ōya-san wa Shishunki! (Landlord is in Puberty) manga revealed two more cast members on Sunday. Ibuki Kido (OniAi's Akiko Himenokōji, The Perfect Insider's Shiki Magata) will play Mayu Ueno and Erii Yamazaki (Re-Kan!'s Makoto Ogawa, Samurai Flamenco's Moe Morita) will play Yuki Miyamura.
The two voice actresses join Yurika Kubo (Love Live!'s Hanayo Koizumi, Monster Musume's Tionisia), who will star as the lead character Chie Satonaka. Kido and Yamazaki are also performing the show's theme song under the unit name "every❤ing!."
Yuki Ogawa (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend episode director, My Wife is the Student Council President storyboard writer) is directing the anime at Seven Arcs Pictures. Atsuki Shimizu (Boruto -Naruto the Movie- key animator, Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Ghoul √A animation director) is in charge of character designs and is also serving as the chief animation director. Arte Refact (Komori-san Can't Decline, BlazBlue Alter Memory) is composing the music and King Records and bilibili are producing the music.
The anime will premiere in January.
The four-panel manga follows a protagonist who is living alone for the first time after finding employment. At his tiny, no-bath apartment he finds a landlord who looks like a little sister. She does the cooking and housework, so sometimes seems like a grandmother, but she also enjoys a normal middle school life with her friends.
Minase launched the manga in Manga Time in 2012, and it also began serializing in Manga Time's sister publication Manga Time Family in January 2014. Houbunsha shipped the fourth compiled volume on May 7. The fifth volume is slated to ship on January 7.
