As historical figures Kichō, Maeda Toshiie in Hakuōki team's original July anime

The official website for Studio DEEN's original television anime series Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga announced two more cast members on Friday:

Yumiri Hanamori as Kichō, Saitō Dōsan's daughter

Takuma Terashima as Maeda Toshiie, Oda Nobunaga's vassal

The anime will give a "bold interpretation" on historical figure Oda Nobunaga starting with his youth as an early teen. The series will follow him and his rivalry with his younger brother Nobuyuki.

The show will star:

Yūsuke Kobayashi as Oda Nobunaga

Yūma Uchida as Ikeda Tsuneoki

Kaito Ishikawa as Oda Nobuyuki

[Historical Japanese names are listed here with family name first.]

The anime will reunite the staff of the Hakuōki anime franchise, including character designer Atsuko Nakajima, script supervisor Ryota Yamaguchi, and scriptwriter Megumu Sasano. Additionally, Kaoru Sawada (Diamond Daydreams, Junji Ito "Collection") is also writing the scripts, and Noriyuki Abe (Yū Yū Hakusho, Bleach, GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) is directing the series. Yūsuke Shirato (Lost Song) is composing the music at Flying Dog.

May'n (Macross Frontier, The Ancient Magus' Bride, Aquarion Logos) performs the show's ending theme song.

The anime will premiere in July and will air in Japan on Tokyo MX, AT-X, WOWOW, and BS-Fuji, and will stream on the d Anime Store. Author Sasano launched a novel adaptation in Tokuma Shoten's Animage magazine on January 10. The novel serves as both a prequel and a spinoff.
