Cheer Boys!! TV Anime's Additional Cast, July 5 Premiere, Visual Revealed

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for the television anime of Ryō Asai's Cheer Danshi!! (Cheer Boys!!) novel revealed the anime's premiere date, additional cast, and a new visual on Friday. The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and TV Aichi on July 5, and on BS11 on July 6.

The additional cast includes:

Hiroki Yasumoto as Jin Dōmoto, the team captain of Sparks, the nation's strongest male/female cheerleading team. Has a strong sense of responsibility toward cheerleading, and has a past with Shō.

Yoshitaka Yamaya as Kaoru Hanasaki, a rookie in Sparks. Prideful, and opposes male-only cheerleading.

The previously announced cast of the anime includes:

Yūki Yonai as Haruki Bandō, a freshman in college who was born into a family of Judo martial artists, but quit because of the pressure. He joined the cheerleading club after being invited by Kazuma. He takes a while to warm up to people.

Nobuhiko Okamoto as Kazuma Hashimoto, Haru's childhood friend and the person who understands him the most. He formed the cheerleading club because his late parents used to do cheerleading.

Yūki Ono as Shō Tokugawa, a cheerleading expert who gives off an aura of handsomeness. He gives his harsh opinions to the newly-started cheerleading club. His only problem is that his sense in clothing is awful.

Tomokazu Sugita as Wataru Mizoguchi, the son of a high-class Japanese restaurant owner. His looks don't deceive: he has a stiff body and horrible rhythm. He often quotes famous figures.

Yuu Hayashi as Kōji Tōno, a young man who weighs 100 kilograms and has no experience with sports whatsoever, but joins the cheerleading club because he wants to change. His nickname is Ton.

Kōsuke Kuwano as Sōichirō Suzuki, a young man whose special skill is speaking in a Kansai dialect. Having played only baseball throughout high school, he is very skilled in athletics. His nickname is Ichirō.

Katsuyuki Konishi as Gen Hasegawa, a guy who is also from Kansai. He can usually be found screwing around with Ichirō, but can pull off a backflip without any problems.

Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee manga creator Hiroyuki Asada is providing the original character designs for the series. Ai Yoshimura (Blue Spring Ride, Dance with Devils) is directing the series at Brains Base, and Reiko Yoshida (Girls und Panzer, Haruchika – Haruta & Chika) is handling the series composition. Hitomi Tsuruta is adapting Asada's designs for animation and is also serving as chief animation director.

Rock band Luck Life performs the opening theme song "Hajime no Ippo" (First Step). The seven main cast members of the anime perform the ending theme song "LIMIT BREAKERS" under the unit name BREAKERS.

The youth novel revolves around the "slightly odd and cute" members of a cheerleading squad at a men's university. Shueisha published the novel in 2013.

Kenichi Kondō launched a manga adaptation titled Cheer Danshi!! GO BREAKERS on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app on April 5.
