The official website for Wixoss Diva(A)Live, the new television anime in Takara Tomy's Wixoss franchise, announced nine more cast members on Sunday.

The anime's story moves the "Wixoss" card game to the online virtual space of "Wixossland" as it continues to grow more popular. The game allows players to become the LRIG avatars themselves. The most popular format in the game is "Diva Battle," which allows three players to team up to compete against other units for the most "Selector" fans. Some units are idol-themed, while others are DJ- and band-themed.
The previously announced cast includes:
Haruka Shiraishi as Rei Sakigake, a member of "No Limit." She is a class representative in her school, and is usually seen as a silent genius, but she hides a secret passion within her, which she unleashes in Wixossland to great acclaim.
Shizuku Hoshinoya as Akino Onko, a member of "No Limit." She knows more about Wixoss than most, and followed Hirana into Diva Battle after some persuasion.
Masato Matsune (Chaos Dragon, Chronos Ruler) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff, with series scripts overseen by Tsuyoshi Tamai (episode scripts for Lostorage conflated WIXOSS). NC Empire is credited with the visual concept design and original character designs, and Ui Shigure is credited with the character designs. Yoshinori Saito is handling the animation character designs. Yoshikazu Iwanami is the sound director, and Maiko Iuchi is returning from previous anime in the franchise to compose the music.
The series will premiere in January 2021. (Takara Tomy had announced the series in March with a planned 2020 premiere.)
