The video also reveals more of the cast, the April 10 premiere, and a new visual for the anime (pictured above). The newly announced cast members and their character designs include:

Haruka Watanabe as Yū Takezono, a rich elementary school student
Nao Natsuno as Sakura Usuda, Futaba's cousin
Kotone Kuwayama as Hajime Tsuji, Futaba's rival

The previously announced cast members include:
Ayaka Imamura as Teru Hayama, who looks like an angel but is really a demonic class president.
Yū Wakui as Yōko Nishikawa, the daughter of family that used to be a member of the upper class, but after her father's company went bankrupt, they became poor.

The comedy manga follows the everyday life of three very different high school students, all of whom have the kanji for "leaf" in their name. ("Sansha Sanyō" is a Japanese idiom that means three people who have different personalities to the each other, but the manga's title replaces the final kanji in the idiom with the kanji for "leaf.")
Yasuhiro Kimura (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! episode director) is directing the series at animation studio Doga Kobo. Hideaki Koyasu (Lance N' Masques, GJ Club) is handling series composition and Jun Yamazaki (episode animation director for Senran Kagura: Ninja Flash!, Muromi-san) is designing the characters. In addition to performing the opening theme song "Clover♣Kakumeeshon," the character group Triple♣Feeling is also performing the ending theme song "Gūchoki Parade."
