The official website for the television anime adaptation of Satoshi Miyakawa and artist Kei Itō's Uchū Senkan Tiramisu (Space Battleship Tiramisu) manga updated on Thursday with additional cast members and the anime's April 2 premiere date. It also revealed that the manga will get a stage play adaptation.

The new cast members include:

Takaya Hashi as Venturi Leroy, the captain of the Tiramisu. While stoic and stern in command, he has a soft spot for his daughter Ligier.

Aya Endo as Ligier Leroy, the beautiful and beloved daughter of Venturi. She has a selfish streak due to a spoiled upbringing. She often treats Subaru as a little brother.

The site also revealed the designs for some of the mecha in the anime.

Durandal, Subaru's machine

Kerukeion, Isuzu's machine

Primavera, Ligier's machine

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, BS11, and the Hikari TV streaming service on Monday, April 2 at 1:00 a.m., 2:00 a.m., 2:30 a.m., and 2:00 a.m., respectively (all effectively Tuesday morning). It will also air on AT-X on April 6 at 10:35 p.m.

The stage play will debut this summer. Kazuhito Yoneyama will direct, and Yūsei Naruse will pen the script.

Previously announced cast members include:

Kaito Ishikawa as Subaru Ichinose

Takahiro Sakurai as Isuzu Ichinose

Junichi Suwabe as Vulgar Hummer

Takuya Eguchi as Subaru-B

Akio Ohtsuka will also narrate the show.

The tagline in the visual reads, "The Earth was blue. The brothers were idiots."

Hiroshi Ikehata (Robot Girls Z, Seiyu's Life!) is directing the anime, Yū Satō is handing the series composition, and Ai Yokoyama (Bayonetta: Bloody Fate) is designing the characters. As previously announced, Studio Gonzo is providing the animation.

The science fiction gag comedy follows the everyday life of Subaru Ichinose, the ace pilot of the space battleship "Tiramisu." Since he cannot get used to being surrounded by older pilots, Subaru shuts himself in the cockpit of his personal ship "Durandal."

Writer Miyakawa (Haha o Nakushita Toki, Boku wa Ikotsu o Tabetai to Omotta.) and artist Itō launched the ongoing manga on Shinchosha's Kurage Bunch website in October 2015. The fifth compiled book volume will ship on Friday.
