A scan from the ninth issue of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine, which will go on sale on February 1, has revealed two additional cast members for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Boku no Hero Academia by studio Bones.

Cast
Momo Yaoyorozu: Marina Inoue (Kyoukai no Rinne (TV))
Fumikage Tokoyami: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Ajin)

The original manga drawn by Kouhei Horikoshi has been serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump since July 2014. In October of last year, it was announced that the series would receive an anime adaptation, with the premiere date later announced to be Spring 2016.

Well I guess I'm fine with these guys.

I'm just still stuck on why they didn't cast Saori Hayami as Uraraka. Her voice is perfect for that role.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Looking forward to Yoshimasa Hosoya's role in this especially since I think he does a good job with Kaito's character.

it get's many color pages and is always one of the first manga in the WSJ (-> great rating).
if you want some personal opinions, here's mine:
it's currently my nr3 after one piece and boku dake ga inai machi. i'm enjoying each chapter more than the last couple hundred chapters of naruto (actually even more than most of the good chapters)

I'm alright with these seiyuu.
And I'm waiting for Todoroki as well...( a deeper voice would be great, someone like Ishikawa Kaito, but they already used him for Iida...oh well)

Oh wow, Marina Inoue was literally my one and only pick for Momo, and she's actually playing her.
Perfect.

Hayami Saori's voice doesn't really fit that well for Uraraka imo. She's a bit quirky but not quirky like Shinoa from Seraph. Ayane Sakura did a great job with her based on the PV.

OT: Great cast, once again, along with the previously announced ones.

Well I don't really have any problems with Ayane Sakura, but I felt that Hayami would have been better because whenever I read the manga, for some reason her voice would always pop up in my head when I would read Uraraka's lines.

It's going to be Matsuoka for Todoroki, I can already see it coming.

Well, that's your opinion and I respect that. I've been surprised lots of times with the cast choices before and most of them turned out to be good in the end, so I would expect whoever who picked the casts to know what they're doing. Now that I've heard Ayane Sakura voicing Uraraka in the PV, I'm really glad they picked her. Maybe Hayami Saori can pull it off too but I'm happy with the current cast now. :)

I have a feeling it's gonna be some rising seiyuu with little roles like Mikazuki from Gundam IBO, Ushio from Ushio to Tora or someone along those lines.

Kind of wanted Marina Inoue for Deku, but I guess she also fits Momo too, so it can work. Fumikage's choice is also perfect.

Just the voice, Not the face right?
Still Ayane Sakura was more fit for the role.
Because she had a damn wide voice range.
