The official website for the television anime of Masaki Andō's Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki (Yatogame-chan Observation Diary) four-panel manga revealed additional cast members and staff for the anime on Tuesday. Yūki Wakai and Mikako Komatsu join the cast as Mai Tadakusa (left in picture below) and Yanna Sasatsu (right), respectively. As previously announced, Haruka Tomatsu will play the protagonist Monaka Yatogame (center) in the anime.
The staff also unveiled the rough character designs for the characters (from top to bottom below) Monaka Yatogame, Mai Tadakusa, Yanna Sasatsu, and Kaito Jin.
Satsuki Hayasaka (Hinako Note, High School DxD Hero episode animation director) joins the staff as the character designer. Hisayoshi Hirasawa (Miss Bernard said., Netsuzou Trap -NTR-, Jingai-san no Yome) is the chief director for the anime at Saetta, with Creators in Pack credited for animation production cooperation.
