Hayashibara Megumi cast as 'Hakumen no Mono'
A pre-screening event was held on March 13 in Toyosu, Tokyo, for the TV anime, Ushio and Tora, which will broadcast its third season from April 2016 on Tokyo MX and other channels.
Making an appearance were the 4 main cast members : Yu Hatanaka who plays Ushio Aotsuki, Rikiya Koyama who plays Tora, Mikako Komatsu who plays the role of Asako Nakamura and Kiyono Yasuno who plays the character of Mayuko Inoue. The guests shared their memories about the voice dubbing for episodes 1 to 26, which were aired from July to December of 2015.
Afterwards, the audience was treated to an advance screening of the first episode of the third series – and the 27th episode of the full story. What a delight to watch the story progress again after 3 months.
It was also revealed that Hayashibara Megumi will be cast as Hakumen no Mono. She commented, ‘I’ve played a lot of strong characters up until now, but it seems this is the ultimate role.’
Ushio to Tora will be broadcast from April to June, and the season’s final (39th) episode will conclude with the battle against ‘Hakumen no Mono’.
