The official website for the television anime adaptation of Gakuen Basara, a high school spinoff project based on Capcom's Sengoku Basara game franchise, revealed three more cast members for the series on Friday. Toshiki Masuda is replacing Toru Ohkawa from the Sengoku Basara anime series as Tokugawa Ieyasu (Masuda previously played Ieyasu in the Ikémen Sengoku: Bromances Across Time anime and Ikemen Sengoku Toki o Kakeru Koi game).

The new cast includes:

Toshiki Masuda as Tokugawa Ieyasu


Tomokazu Seki as Ishida Mitsunari

The previously revealed cast includes:

Takehito Koyasu as Sarutobi Sasuke


Masakazu Morita as Maeda Keiji


Ryuuzou Ishino as Chōsokabe Motochika

The Gakuen Basara school battle comedy parody reimagines the Warring States Era warriors of Capcom's action game franchise as rival students in a modern high school. Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura battle to replace Toyotomi Hideyoshi as the next student council president. The project published several official comic anthologies between 2007 and last year.

Minoru Ohara (Glass Fleet, Lupin III: Episode 0 'First Contact') is directing the anime at Brain's Base, and Kouji Miura (Examurai Sengoku) is in charge of the series scripts. Haruhito Takada (Kaiji) is designing the characters. Capcom's Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Makoto Yamamoto are supervising from the original work.

Capcom's Sengoku Basara franchise already inspired three television anime series, one anime movie, a live-action series with two compilation films, and several stage plays.
