The anime adaptation of Re-Kan! is set for the spring 2015 season and we got some new visual material recently as the site refreshed as it begins to prepare for the fun holidays of Valentine’s Day and White Day in Japan. But now that all of that has been set up and squared away, new casting information has surfaced for the series with the supporting cast being revealed:
- Yoshihisa Kawahara as Daihen-zamurai
- Mikako Izawa as Hanako-san
- Kujira as Ero-neko
- Eriko Matsui as Merry-san
- Aya Uchida as Kogal Spirit
- Futaba Kino as Faceless Spirit
As we often see when stepping up from drama CDs to anime properties, the cast often stays the same but sometimes there are changes. It was previously announced that Ibuki Kido is taking on the role of Hibiki Amami, which was played by Aya Endo on the drama CDs. The rest of the cast is new as well with Miku Itou as Narumi Inoue, Erii Yamazaki as Ogawa, Riho Iida as Uehara and M・A・O as Esumi.
Announced back in August as getting the green light, the property is a four panel manga by Hinako Seta that began as a one-shot back in 2009 before going into a full series in 2010, which in turn has spawned five compilations so far. The anime adaptation is scheduled for a spring 2015 debut. It’ll be directed by Masashi Kudo based on scripts by Takashi Aoshima with character designs done by Aoi Yamamoto at Pierrot Plus.
Plot concept: Amami Hibiki is a girl who can see ghosts and other supernatural phenomena in her surroundings. The stories follow her daily life with both her friends and the otherworldly.
