New OAD ships with manga's 24th volume on March 23

The official website for the anime based on Natsumi Eguchi's Hozuki no Reitetsu manga announced three more cast members for the anime's upcoming original anime DVD (OAD) on Wednesday. Kouki Miyata will play Pochi, Tomomichi Nishimura will play Hanasaka Jiisan, and Wataru Hatano will play Kintarō.

The OAD will ship with the manga's 24th volume on March 23. The OAD is the first work in a new announced project for the manga, which celebrated its fifth anniversary last year. The second work in the new project is an event that will take place at the TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills theater in Tokyo on March 11. The event will show an advanced screening of the OAD, and will also announce the third work in the project.

Hiro Kaburagi, who directed the previous television anime series, is returning as chief director for the OAD. Midori Gotou is also returning to write the script. Kazuhiro Yoneda (Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara., Yona of the Dawn) is directing the OAD. Studio DEEN is animating the OAD (Wit Studio animated the television anime and previous three OADs).

The manga inspired a 13-episode television anime series that premiered in January 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in February 2015 under the title Hozuki's Coolheadedness. The manga also inspired three previous OADs that shipped with the 17th, 18th, and 19th volumes of the manga in 2015. Advance screenings of the three OADs were held in theaters in Japan in December 2014.
