We recently got the first key visual for the winter 2015 anime series Isuca, which you can see to the right, and now the cast has grown a bit more for the show. The production was announced back in June with a planned January 2015 broadcast set for it. The series comes from the manga by Osamu Takahashi which started in 2009 in Young Ace and has a few volumes to its name so far with the fifth volume released this summer. With the project set to be a TV series rather than OVA series as first speculated, there’s a lot of curiosity as to how the copious amount of nudity will be handled. The series is being produced by ARMS with Akira Iwanaga directing it based on scripts by Masashi Suzuki. The theme song for the series is set to be performed by Afilia Saga.
The new members of the cast include:
Saeko Zogo as Nadeshiko
Akane Kohinata as Matsuri
Yumeha Koda as Fumizuki
Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Kanae
Ayumi Fujimura as Isuca
The series previously announced Ibuki Kido as Sakuya Shimazu, Keisuke Koumoto as Shinichiro Asano, M.A.O as Suseri Shimazu and Kaori Sadohara as Tamako.
Plot concept: Shinichirou decides to look for a job in order to pay his rent, and his teacher suggests that he work for someone at their house,doing housekeeping. However, the person who hired him was Sakuya, a girl who is the 37th head of the Shimazu family, and her job is to exorcise and eliminate unwanted creatures. Shinichirou accidentally releases one of the creatures that Sakuya captures and they cooperate to catch it. A story of comedic creature hunting begins!
