Gakuen Babysitters Anime Reveals Main Staff
posted on by Karen Ressler
The production committee for the television anime adaptation of Hari Tokeino's Gakuen Babysitters manga announced the anime's main staff on Thursday. Shūsei Morishita is directing the anime at animation studio Brains Base. Yuuko Kakihara (Chihayafuru 2, Orange) is handling series composition, Satoshi Motoyama (Aho-Girl, Skip Beat!) is serving as sound director, and Mina Ōsawa (sub-character designer/chief animation director on Kiss Him, Not Me) is designing the characters.
The anime will premiere in the first quarter of 2018 on Tokyo MX, BS11, and Animax.
The cast includes:
- Kōtarō Nishiyama (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!'s Atsushi) as Ryūichi Kashima
- Nozomi Furuki (The Seven Deadly Sins' Ellen) as Kotarō Kashima
- Yuichiro Umehara (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!'s En) as Hayato Kamitani
- Yuko Sanpei (Eureka Seven's Renton) as Taka Kamitani
The manga centers on the brothers Ryūichi and Kotarō Kashima. Ryūichi is in high school and Kotarō is still a toddler. After their parents are killed in a plane crash, the two brothers find themselves living with the chairwoman of the Morinomiya Academy, who herself lost her son and daughter-in-law in the same accident. The chairwoman, however, has one stipulation for the brothers in order to live with her: Ryūichi has to work at the academy's daycare center as a babysitter.
Tokeino launched the manga in LaLa in 2009, and Hakusensha published the manga's 14th compiled volume on April 5.
