As Monster Musume continues on into its season, it’s no surprise that the cast grows and grows, because that’s what shows of this nature do. And that means as we get closer to some of these new introductions, casting and character designs are revealed. The official production has now revealed four more characters and their respective actors:
- Ai Kakuma as Lala

Monster Musume is directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara based on the overall series composition and scripting by Kazuyuki Fueyasu. Tatsuya Sunagawa is doing double duty as the animation director and character designer and the series is going to be animated at Lerche and Seva.

Seven Seas Entertainment is currently releasing the manga in North America and they’ve just released the sixth volume themselves recently, having caught up quickly to the Japanese release side overall.
Plot concept: Monsters—they’re real, and they want to date us! Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood—not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the “Cultural Exchange Between Species Act,” these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they’re trying.
When a hapless human named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a “volunteer” into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu’s job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life. Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what’s a full-blooded young man with raging hormones to do?!
