The official website for the Binan Kōkō Chikyū Bōei-bu Happy Kiss! (Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss!) anime series revealed the show's cast, staff, and April premiere on Friday.

The show stars:

Naoyuki Shimotsuru as Kyōtarō Shuzenji, a second year at Binan High School. He does not put feeling into anything, and only likes taking baths. When he seems like he's listening to other people, he's probably not. He goes to Binan because it is close to his house.


Ryōga Komata as Ryōma Kirishima, a second year at Binan High School. He seems like a stable person but is a pushover. His inability to say "no" lands him in the mysterious "Earth Defense Club." He has a teasable personality, so Wakura in particular will take advantage of this. He can't turn his back on his childhood friend Shuzenji.


Takahide Ishii as Nanao Wakura, a third year at Binan High School, and current president of the defense club. He is always smiling. For some reason, no one can say no to him. He may get stressed due to silence. He loves to tease Kirishima.


Rikuya Yasuda as Taishi Manza, a first year at Binan High School. He is a walking dictionary and font of wisdom and talks incessantly. He is jealous of his classmate Dōgo's recklessness, but wisdom always wins over.


Shōta Hayama as Ichiro Dōgo, a first year at Binan High School. He is hot-headed, reckless, and puts his all into everything. He is not very smart, but he gets by with his decisive personality.

Kurari Umadani is again credited with the original work. Shinji Takamatsu is again directing the series at Studio Comet, and he is also handling the series composition and serving as sound director. Chizuru Miyawaki is returning to design the characters (she was in charge of design concept for the Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! LOVE! series), and Tomoko Miyakawa is adapting those designs for animation. yamazo is again composing the music at Pony Canyon.

Other staff members include:

  • Chief Animation Directors: Tomoko Miyakawa, Hatsue Koizumi
  • Art Director: Yasutoshi Kawai
  • Color Design: Yuko Tsumori
  • CG Director: Yūto Numajiri
  • Director of Photography: Hiroaki Tanaka
