Two more cast have joined the team for the anime adaptation of Shuichi Aso’s ESPer comedy manga Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan. Ai Kayano, who voiced Inori Yuzuriha and Mana Oma in Guilty Crown, will play Kokomi Teruhashi. And Yukari Tamura, known as the voice of Akame ga Kill!‘s Mine, will portray Chiyo Yumehara. The new additions will be announced in this year’s 24th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, and the anime designs will also be revealed for the new characters and those previously cast as follows:
Hiroshi Kamiya (Fate/stay night‘s Shinji and Noragami‘s Yato) as Kasuo Saiki
Mitsuo Iwata (Akira movie’s Shotaro Kaneda) as Kuniharu Saiki
Rikako Aikawa (Pururun! Shizuku-chan‘s Hababi-kun) as Kurumi Saiki
Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!‘s Haruka Nanase) as Shun Kaido
Daisuke Ono (Black Butler‘s Sebastian) as Riki Nendo
Hiroaki Sakurai of Maid Sama! will be directing, with Shirobako‘s Michiko Yokote on series composition and Masayuki Onji of Aoi Hana designing characters. EGG Firm and J.C.Staff animate the show, based on the manga which first launched as a Jump series in 2012, after Aso had been drawing one-shots for the Jump and Jump Next! magazines since 2011.
Besides inspiring three voice comics, two novels, and a mini-game for the Jump Live app, the series was previously adapted as a Flash anime series in 2013. A live-action film was also announced last year, but is yet to be released.
