The official website of P.A. Works' Shiroi Suna no Aquatope (Aquatope of White Sand) original television anime revealed three additional cast members and a second key visual (pictured) on Friday. The anime will begin airing on July 8 on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, MBS, and Ryuukyuu Broadcasting.

Cast
Kai Nakamura: Shinba Tsuchiya (Ballroom e Youkoso)
Kuuya Yakamashi: Youhei Azakami (Kuromukuro)
Ojii: Hiroshi Yanaka (Free!)

The three additional cast members will be joining the main cast consisting of Rikako Aida (Love Live! Sunshine!!) and Miku Itou (Futsuu no Joshikousei ga [Locodol] Yattemita.), who are playing Fuuka Miyaza and Kukuru Misakino, respectively.

Toshiya Shinohara (Nagi no Asu kara) is helming the anime, with Yuuko Kakihara (Orange) handling the series composition. U35 (Lapis Re:LiGHTs) is in charge of the original character design, and Yuki Akiyama (Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara) is serving as both the character designer and chief animation director. Yoshiaki Dewa (Flying Witch) is composing the music.

Male characters? And they were even added to the new poster? Lol, if my suspicions about the "new Sakura Quest" were true, then I bet the flame around this show will be even hotter than I thought.

Six months ago, I couldn't even imagine that so many people literally hate P.A. Works for all-female shows that ignore gay routes.

said hate seems a little odd too, since most of there series(scrolling through their catalogue) have at least a few male characters. Even this one has two in the poster

It seems that too many people accept the "all-female = yuri bait" stereotype as some kind of dogma, so every time a show with two female leads or all-female cast go on completely straight route, it gives them a non-ironic feeling of deception and betrayal. For example, many people were completely convinced that Carol and Tuesday would be yuri even before the first episode premiered because it had the friendship of the two female leads at the center of the plot. And then I saw some people stubbornly pretend that girls could be bisexual, as they didn't want to admit that the show didn't even think of making them romantically.

People seem to forget these days that shipping is just supposed to be fun, and take it too seriously as shippers or people disinterested in the subject

Well, I can understand ship war when we talk about romantic shows, where romance is at least one of the main focuses. But when the ships are completely fictional and the show isn't even going to put any emphasis on it, things can get completely out of control absurd.

It seems that after the addition of the guys (one of whom was already in the second trailer) this show has the potential to gain a more prominent romantic subplot, but I don't think the writers will make much of it.

Appearantly, this is going to be a yuri anime, despite the tags claiming otherwise. I'll keep this show in my radar.

This is probably my most anticipated show of the year. I'm glad to see an even more fleshed out character list.

Stop calling bait any show that doesn't meet your yuri expectations. This show was not going to be romance or yuri bait at all.

Oh too bad to hear about the new cast. I often don't like males in anime and probably going to give this anime 1/10 because of that. If It doesn't have lesbian kissing in it. There are a few good Yuri romances with support males in the cast after all. But I don't think this is going to be it to be honest

No bigger loss, there will be plenty of good animes for my taste with females only that I can enjoy =)
