A new batch of cast has joined the anime adaptation of Shuichi Aso’s psychic comedy Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan, following close behind the commercial promo video which was released last week. The four actors added on to the series were announced in this year’s 29th issue of Shonen Jump as follows:

Late last month, it was announced in Shonen Jump that the morning showing of the double broadcast would air on July 4th at 7:05am, with the late-night broadcast following on July 11th at 1:35am. The characters were also given design previews, and their voice cast is led by Hiroshi Kamiya, known for playing Fate/stay night‘s Shinji, as Kusuo Saiki. The rest of the cast stand as follows:
Mitsuo Iwata (Akira movie’s Shotaro Kaneda) as Kuniharu Saiki

Hiroaki Sakurai of Maid-sama! is 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.
