The staff of the television anime of Junko's Kiss Him, Not Me (Watashi ga Motete Dōsunda) revealed two new cast members on Friday.

Shouta Aoi plays Aka (left), while Daisuke Ono plays the Lord (right) both of whom are characters in "Kachu Rabu" (a nod to "Tōken Ranbu"), a work that protagonist Kae is a big fan of.

The anime's first home video Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume will ship in Japan on December 21. The first press limited edition of the volume will contain the first three episodes, as well as three episodes of "Yon x Go x Roku x Nana" (4 x 5 x 6 x 7), a YouTube program premiering on October 12 that will feautre the main male cast to promote the anime.

Previously announced cast includes:

The anime premiered in Japan on Thursday. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

Crunchyroll is releasing chapters of the manga in North America as Kodansha publishes them in Japan, and it describes the story:

Kae Serinuma is what you'd call a "fujoshi." When she sees boys getting along with each other, she loves to indulge in wild fantasies! One day her favorite anime character dies and the shock causes her to lose a ton of weight. Then four hot guys at school ask her out, but that isn't exciting to her at all — she'd rather see them date each other!

Hiroshi Ishiodori (Peach Girl, Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino) is directing the anime at Brains Base. Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Dagashi Kashi) is in charge of series composition. Kazuhiko Tamura (Gunparade Orchestra, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~, Kyōkai no Rinne) is designing the characters for animation. Mina Ōsawa (Actually, I Am…, Nurse Witch Komugi R) is the chief animation director.

The band From4to7, a band composed of the anime's main male voice actors (Yuuki Ono, Keisuke Koumoto, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Nobunaga Shimazaki), is performing the anime's opening theme, "Prince x Prince" and Rie Murakawa is performing the ending theme, "Doki Doki no Kaze" (Heartbeat's Wind).

Junko began the manga in Bessatsu Friend in 2013. Kodansha USA is publishing the series in North America.
