posted on by Egan Loo

The official website for the television anime of Miko Yasu's Police in a Pod (Hakozume: Kōban Joshi no Gyakushū) manga posted two more cast members, its January 5 premiere, and its first key visual on Friday.

The newly announced cast members are:

Comic actor Kendo Kobayashi as the Deputy Chief

Rikiya Koyama as Lieutenant Tamotsu Hōjo

The anime will premiere on the AT-X channel on January 5 at 11:30 p.m. (9:30 a.n. EST), and it will also run on Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, TV Aichi, and BS NTV.

The police comedy centers on female police officer Kawai, who had enough of a career she wasn't even that into. She was about to hand in her resignation, when the unthinkable happened — she met the new, female director of her station! And after spending a little time with this gorgeous role model, Kawai realizes that maybe she isn't quite done being an officer after all.
