Sansha Sanyō TV Anime Runs Ad
posted on by Egan Loo
Toho Animation began streaming a television commercial for the television anime of Cherry Arai's four-panel manga Sansha Sanyō on Monday.
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.")
The cast includes:
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.
Aina Suzuki as Asako Kondō, one of Nishiyama's few friends, and the one who can calm her down. She has no ill will at all.
Rika Momokawa as Shino Sonobe, a former Nishikawa family maid who now manages a candy store. She loves schemes and conspiracies.
Asuka Nishi as Kō Hayama, Teru's big sister
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
Chiemi Tanaka as Sasame Tsuji, Hajime's little sister
