I've been reading that manga quite a while now, and shit just got me excited OMG. I actually expected P.A. Works (Glasslip is disappointing) or Shaft or A-1 but Bones is pretty good too. Will definitely check it out

O.O *happiness* holy fck a manga I actually read before it adapted into a anime *_* it's similar to akatsuki no yona, gonna be just as amazing~

Sounds a lot like Akatsuki no Yona. I really enjoyed Yona so I'll definitely give this a go.

I'll only stick to the manga. Don't like the voice cast. A bit disappointing for me since I'm big fan of Akagami but oh well, I'll be satisfied as long as it boosts the manga sales.

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime is one of my favorite manga, so I will be looking forward to this adaptation :D

I will probably stick with the manga for a while since it's going to be animated by BONES. Happy for the fans though who are looking forward to the anime, personally I am not. Would have preferred Studio Peirrot after the way they have handled AkaYona recently.

OnoD sounds good for Izana, any of the cool sounding deep voices would work, like Nakamura Yuuichi. As for Mitsuhide, I think Hosoya Yoshimasa would be a good choice, or maybe Maeno Tomoaki, Hino Satoshi. Kiki...yeah not to sure either. Maybe Satou Rina? Agreed with the low and mature part though. You forgot Obi ;) Someone who can sound playful and not necessarily a deep voice, somewhere in the middle perhaps? Suzuki Tatsuhisa or Yusa Kouji type comes to mind. Well looking forward to the announcements for these characters, and maybe I'll hit at least one of them lol.



I definitely agree with you that Obi should sound playful and not have too deep a voice. Playful and nonchalant and can say "miss" or "mistress" casually. (It's not that I didn't forget him, it's just that the rest of my list would slowly turn into a description of voices instead of VA's I think would fit the characters.) ;)

I mean, we've got Raji, Ryuu, Garack, Marquis Haruka, Mihaya, Kiharu, Sakaki, and many extras.

Finally an adaptation for this manga. Plus with Ryota Ohsaka and Hayami Saori voicing them? Did the studio peeking on my head, it's funny how they find out my forgotten favorites.

Hyped for this because I read the manga when it first came out and it was really nice.

While we're waiting for the rest of the cast to be announced, whose voice do you guys think would fit the characters?
The minute I saw Izana I thought, "Daisuke Ono should voice this guy."
And maybe Hikaru Midorikawa as Mitsuhide.
I still don't have a particular VA in mind for Kiki after reading all this time, but I imagined her voice to be low and mature.
