Just today we came to know who will play as the main characters in the Medaka Box TV anime adaptation of the high school comedy story by writer NisiOisin and Akira Akatsuki. There is definitely a lot coming up judging by the news that are spreading like a virus around the internet and yet, we don’t even know when will the show start!
In case you have no idea what I am talking about, the story of the project stars Medaka Kurokami, a strong and very active school girl in Hanokiwa Academy who is also the chief of the council in the school. Due to her newly installed suggestion box, the entire council including other members Zenkichi, Akune, and Kikaijima, has to fight various enemies in order to help the academy into a better and more comfortable existence. The types of battles Medaka and her colleagues have to fight vary from bacteries to supernatural invaders.
The seiyuu that have already been confirmed are Yuuki Ono and Aki Toyosaki.
Ono-san will be playing as the young Zenkichi Hitoyoshi. The seiyuu is quite famous around the light-genre fans for his roles as Kaname Tsukahara in Kimi to Boku and also Taiga Kagami in Kokoro no Basket.
Aki Toyosaki, on the other hand, has quite a huge list of popular and loved roles in the anime otaku circles. She has played Aoi Kunieda in Beelzebub, K-ON!’s Yui Hurasawa, Tomo Yamanobe in Seikon no Qwaser, UN-GO’s Inga and many, many more.
