     Brand new anime, Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge, has just released a key visual, info on the main cast and characters, cast comments, and additional staff info

     The main cast is comprised of Kensho Ono as Tanaka, Yoshimasa Hosoya as Ōta, Natsumi Takamori as Miyano, Kotori Koiwai as Shiraishi, Ayaka Suwa as Echizen, Aoi Yuki as Rino, Nao Tōyama as Saya, Kazuyuki Okitsu as Shimura, and Yuichi Iguchi as Kato.

     Let’s take a look at the characters and cast comments.

     ●Tanaka (CV: Kensho Ono)
     He is a lazy high school freshman. Generally, he does not work or exerts himself. Yet from time to
time, he puts a surprising amount of effort just into being lazy.


      Kensho Ono as Tanaka

     Hi, I am Kensho Ono and I am playing Tanaka in Tanaka Kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge.  Even since the audition, I have enjoyed playing Tanaka and when I was chosen for the role, I was very happy. Every week, I am working to make my dialogues with Hosoya, who plays Ota, more interesting. I am not sure if I got it right or not (Laughs). But… it’s definitely funny! Please check it out.

     ●Ōta (CV: Yoshimasa Hosoya)
     He looks like a tough guy, but actually is a motherly type and very attentive.  He is a strong boy and often hangs out with his classmate Tanaka.


     ■Yoshimasa Hosoya as Tanaka

     Hi, this is Yoshimasa Hosoya and I was chosen to play Ōta. Since this is an easy-going story about easy-going daily events in school life, I want to put on a refined, delicate performance while enjoying all the atmosphere. I am giving it my all to help create a world view you can only find in anime. We all want to thank you very much.

     ●Miyano (Cv: Natsumi Takamori)
     She is a classmate of Tanaka. She is always cheerful, energetic, and hard working, as opposed to Tanaka. Her favorite food is strawberry milk.


     Natusmi Takamori as Miyano

     When the office contacted me about getting the role, I was sooo happy! If you ask me what type of girl I am, I guess I’m the lazy type, but Miyano is the exact opposite. She is an energetic little dynamo. I hope to have a lot of fun performing with the help of her pulling me along the way. Miyano, I am gonna give it my best shot!!
