The official website for the Sakugan (formerly Sacks&Guns!!) television anime revealed two additional cast members on Tuesday. The sci-fi mecha anime premieres this fall.

Tsuyoshi Koyama (Sword Art Online: Alicization) will play Boss, the masked leader of an armed group called Shibito that targets and attacks central control towers in each colony. Misaki Watada (Sirius) will play Muuro, a member of Shibito who accompanies Boss. Despite her delicate appearance, she wields a gigantic, knife-like long sword with ease.

Kanon Amane (previously known as Kanon Obata) was selected from seven finalists for the role of the anime's heroine, Memenpu, in December 2019 following a public audition featuring 1400 participants. The main cast was then revealed last December. Yoshimasa Hosoya (Dorohedoro), Minami Tsuda (Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S), and Hikaru Midorikawa (Yu☆Gi☆Oh) were recently cast as Merooro, Linda, and Rufus, respectively. Tsuda and Midorikawa were revealed to be voicing characters in the anime at the time of the main cast announcement.

Jesus, they changed the title again? Impossible to keep track of it at this rate, though admittedly Sacks&Guns!! was a terrible name.

Decent casting though, good to see less-prominent VAs at work.

Am I wrong? Do they have a guy named yuri in the cast? But this is an archetypal female name.

Yuri in Japanese is a kind of feminine name but there also a Japanese guy named Yuri too. But for Slavic countries like Russia or Ukraine, Yuri is a masculine name. Yuri Gagarin and Yuri Zhirkov are both men.

ふっふーん、真姫ちゃんはゴージャスな衣装がよく似合うでしょ?
今から0を100にするのは無理だと思う。でも、もしかしたら1にすることはできるかも。

I live in Russia, so I am somewhat aware of this lol, but in Russian Yuri is pronounced somewhat differently. Do you think that in this case the character has a Russian name?

Sakugan is set up in somewhat a fantasy world, so that 'Yuri' could be in any language. It could be some random name that was chosen by the creator. But, at least Yuri is a name that can use by both men and women.
Looking at the other characters' names like Gaganba or Memempu are also looking weird too. All of the names could be some random name that doesn't have any reason or meaning behind.

I see. In that case, it's easier to wait for the premiere and find out how the show will pronounce it.
