News: Naruto Shippuden’s Satoshi Hino joins cast of Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan

Two more cast have joined the ESPer blunders of the anime adapting Shuichi Aso’s manga Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan, and this year’s 25th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump makes the official announcement today. Satoshi Hino, who voiced Naruto Shippuden‘s Sai, will play Kineshi Hairo, while the voice of Tokyo Ghoul‘s Ken, Natsuki Hanae, plays Reita Toritsuka, and they step up beside the other main cast previously announced 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
Ai Kayano (Guilty crown‘s Inori Yuzuriha and Mana Oma) as Kokomi Teruhashi
Yukari Tamura (Akame ga Kill‘s Mine) as Chiyo Yumehara

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.
