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
Natsuko Kuwatani as Kasuga
The site also revealed character designs but not cast members for two other characters.
The previously revealed cast includes:
Kazuya Nakai as Date Masamune
Sōichiro Hoshi as Sanada Yukimura
Toshiyuki Morikawa as Katakura Kojūrō
Takehito Koyasu as Sarutobi Sasuke
Masakazu Morita as Maeda Keiji
Ryuuzou Ishino as Chōsokabe Motochika
Shigeru Nakahara as Mōri Motonari
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 Brains 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.
