The official website for the television anime of Makoto Ojiro's Insomniacs After School (Kimi wa Hōkago Insomnia) manga revealed more cast and staff members, second promotional video, and key visual for the anime on Wednesday.

The anime will premiere in Japan in April on Tokyo TV and other television channels.The main cast includes Gen Sato as Ganta, and Konomi Tamura as Isaki.

Haruka Tomatsu as Yui Shiromaru

Seiichirō Yamashita as Tao Ukegawa

Lynn as Motoko Kanikawa

Natsumi Fujiwara as Kanami Anamizu

Sumire Morohoshi as Mina Nono

Mamiko Noto as Usako Kurashiki

Shō Karino as Rui Haida

Yuki Ikeda is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS, and Rintarou Ikeda (Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It, The Seven Deadly Sins: Imperial Wrath of The Gods) is supervising and writing the series scripts. Yuki Fukuda (Plunderer) is designing the characters. Yuki Hayashi (Haikyu!!, My Hero Academia, Gundam Build Fighters) is composing the music.

Additional staff members include:

Ojiro launched the manga in Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine in May 2019. Shogakukan will publish the manga's 11th compiled book volume on January 12.

Viz Media licensed the manga in English and will release the manga's first compiled book volume on March 21. The company describes the story:

Two sleepless teenagers find kinship as they escape to their school's astronomy observatory.

Unable to sleep at night, Ganta Nakami is cranky in class and unpopular with his classmates. He discovers that the school observatory, once used by the now-defunct astronomy club, may be the perfect place for a nap—but he's not alone. Fellow insomniac Isaki Magari is willing to share the observatory with Nakami, and a friendship between the two begins as they bond over the most unlikely of things.

Dark rumors about what befell the members of the astronomy club keep people away from the school observatory, and that's what makes it the perfect sanctuary for Nakami and Magari to get some much-needed rest. Unfortunately, the school faculty can't allow its unsanctioned use. But if there were a new astronomy club, maybe these two insomniacs could have a place to call home!

The manga is also inspiring a live-action film that will premiere in 2023 as well. The music video for rock band Macaroni Enpitsu's "Enshin" (Centrifuge) song featured art from the manga in 2019.
