posted on by Jennifer Sherman

The official website for Frontier Works and Go Hands' original anime project W'z revealed five additional cast members for female characters on Thursday. The website also revealed that Fuki will perform the anime's ending theme song.

The new cast members are:

  • Akane Fujita as Haruka
  • Inori Minase as Senri
  • Atsumi Tanezaki as Hana
  • Minami Takahashi as Tamari
  • Yōko Hikasa as Yukine

The anime will premiere on January 5, and will air on MBS, Tokyo MX, TVQ, and BS11. The show will also stream online. The anime is set in Osaka, similar to GoHands' previous anime Hand Shakers. The series will have 13 aired episodes, plus one additional episode on home video.

Previously revealed cast members include:

  • Katsumi Fukuhara as Yukiya/Y's, a 14-year-old student whose hobby is DJ-ing
  • Toshiki Masuda as Midori
  • Shunsuke Takeuchi as Seba
  • Takuya Eguchi as Gai
  • Yoshinosuke Yamagami as Masataka
  • Daisuke Namikawa as Fumiyuki
  • Jun Fukuyama as Reijirō

A stage play adaptation will run at Tokyo's Theater Sun Mall from April 10-14. Takehiro Yoshida is writing and directing the play. GOON TRAX, Frontier Works, and Am-bitioN are all credited with cooperation, and Illuminus is in charge of planning and production.

Ryōhei Takenaka (pictured below) will perform the anime's opening theme song. Takenaka will also star in the stage play adaptation as Yukiya.

The anime centers on Yukiya, who is "probably" 14 years old. He spends his time DJ-ing alone. Due to his father's influence, he's listened to house music since he was young, and he uploads videos online. He wants to convey something to someone. He wants to be recognized, and become important. But getting hurt is scary. One day, while trying to get more views, he does something that can't be undone. And he sees a live broadcast from "that world." Yukiya believes he can't do anything alone, but that he could accomplish something if he were doing it together with someone else.

GOON TRAX is in charge of the show's music. DJ RENA is credited with video and musical production cooperation. 27 musical artists will also participate in the series. Frontier Works and GoHands previously stated that the show is targeted toward women.
