Am I the only one not thrilled by the cast? In fact casting Kaji Yuuki as a genki character kinda ruins it for me...I prefer him in other roles. Plus Ashiya in my mind sounded less high-pitched

@mayuka Congrats you guessed right for the blonde guy. It is Maenu! How did you know?
Aoharu x Kikanjuu had Maenu on the blondie as well and this one had a really similar looking character :P

I like both seiyuu so I will watch!

So is anyone even keeping count how many anime Kaji's doing this season? XD
I might watch for Maenu though :3

Not bad for the cast but eh, I really hope they keep this faithful to what it is.


In case you do not know Pierrot has good adaptation. And all studies have animes that were the original ending. If you worry about some study, worry Bones is almost never makes a good adaptation.

Pierrot Plus is better than Pierrot, but the director of Isuca, oh god.
At least we get Kaji Yuki


Pierrot and Pierret plus are the same only that Pierrot to become better animes. Pierrot is not a bad study, is a medium like madhouse study.

I love the voice actors!
Kinda having high expectations for this.
Hope it goes well.

Kaji Yuuki is sort of a surprise, at least he wasn't one of the seiyuu I mentioned, but it's not a bad surprise <3 so glad it wasn't Matsuoka And yeah, Maenu, perfect choice! I wanted it to be him but placed my bet on Hosoyan :P

Wow the blonde guy's design is generic as fuck.
Low expectations for this one.

I'm kind of fed up with Kaji's voice now, but at least there's Maeno whose voice I really like.
Everytime a new anime's cast is annouced, there's a 90% possibility that either Kaji or Kamiya are in it. I liked their voice, but I'm getting annoyed now.

Kaji hello again and Maeno just perfect omg ♥
Please tell me the fluffy yokai will have cute voice.

I KNEW IT WOULD BE MAENU!

Liking the cast :D

Solid picks so far, but I have to admit didn't picture Abeno with such a heavy voice... but but but Maeno san is talented so should be fine!
