Dandadan TV Anime Reveals Main Cast, October 2024 Debut

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The Jump Festa '24 event on Saturday revealed the main cast and October 2024 debut for the television anime adaptation of Yukinobu Tatsu's Dandadan "paranormal mystery battle & romantic comedy" manga. The event also revealed a "character voice version" teaser video.

The anime stars:

Fūga Yamashiro (Tatami Time Machine Blues assistant director) is directing the anime at Science SARU, and Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan The Final Season, Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen, Mob Psycho 100) is supervising and writing the series scripts. Composer kensuke ushio (Chainsaw Man, DEVILMAN crybaby, Liz and the Blue Bird) is scoring the music. Naoyuki Onda (Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc) is designing the characters, and Yoshimichi Kameda (Mob Psycho 100) is designing the aliens and supernatural entities.

Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:

A nerd must fight powerful spirits and aliens all vying for the secret power of his “family jewel,” so who better to fight alongside him than his high school crush and a spirit granny?!

Momo Ayase and Okarun are on opposite sides of the paranormal spectrum regarding what they'll believe in and what they won't. Their quest to prove each other wrong leads them down a path of secret crushes and paranormal battles they'll have to participate in to believe!

Momo Ayase strikes up an unusual friendship with her school's UFO fanatic, whom she nicknames “Okarun” because he has a name that is not to be said aloud. While Momo believes in spirits, she thinks aliens are nothing but nonsense. Her new friend, meanwhile, thinks the exact opposite. To settle matters, the two set out to prove each other wrong—Momo to a UFO hotspot and Okarun to a haunted tunnel! What unfolds next is a beautiful story of young love…and oddly horny aliens and spirits?

Tatsu serializes the manga on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ service, and Shueisha published the 12th volume on December 4.
