The staff for the anime of Imari Arita's Shachiku-san wa Yо̄jo Yuurei ni Iyasaretai. (The Corporate Drone Wants to Be Healed by a Little Ghost Girl) manga posted the anime's third promotional video on Saturday. The video announces more cast members and the April 7 premiere for the anime, and it features Kaori Ishihara's opening theme song "Cherish" as well as narration by Akio Ohtsuka:

The newly announced cast members are:

Yui Ogura as Miko-chan, a demon child deity

Shū Natani as Konta, another of Miko-chan's attendants

Each episode will have a different narrator, and fans can guess who the next narrator will be by listening to the voice in the next-episode preview. One of the fans who correctly guesses the narrator will win that cast member's autograph (like the one below) every week.
