The official website for the television anime of Shō Futamata's Nanbaka manga announced the main cast of the anime on Wednesday. The cast includes:

Yuuto Uemura as Jūgo

Tetsuya Kakihara as Uno

Airu Shiozaki as Rokku

Daiki Kobayashi as Niko

Tomokazu Seki as Hajime Sugoroku

Satomi Akesaka as Momoko Hyakushiki

The anime will premiere this Fall.

The original manga centers around four prisoners: Jūgo, a man who attempted to break out of prison and ended up extending his jail time; Uno, a man who likes to gamble with women; Rokku, a man who likes to get into fights; and Niko, a man who likes anime. Along with their warden Hajime, the high-tension action comedy story unfolds.

Shinji Takamatsu (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, School Rumble, Gintama) is directing the anime, with scripts by Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation).

Futamata launched the manga on the Comico app in 2013. The first compiled book volume shipped in Japan last November. Crunchyroll digitally published the first volume of the manga in English last December as part of a collaboration with Comico.
