4 More Cast Members Revealed in Teaser for New Akuma Kun Anime Series Coming On Netflix

Yesterday, Netflix released a teaser video and a new visual for the highly anticipated anime series based on Shigeru Mizuki’s Akuma Kun manga. The teaser unveils four more cast members and additional staff members involved in the project. The newly announced cast members include:

Ryoko Shiraishi as Sanae Kazama (Akuma Kun’s mother)

Yumiri Hanamori as Mio Kazama (Sanae’s daughter)

Fairouz Ai as Gremory (a demon)

Yukiyo Fujii as Hina Asanagi (a college student who seeks help from Akuma Kun)

Meanwhile, the newly announced staff members include Sakae Shibuya as the Character Design and Chief Animation Director, Yumiko Kuga as the Art Director, Kunio Tsujita as the Color Key Artist, Takeo Ogiwara as the Compositing Director of Photography, Wataru Osakabe as the Magic Circle Design, and Akio Izutsu as the Music Composer.

According to Netflix, the story of Akuma Kun revolves around a boy who wants to create a society where humanity can realize its true potential and live happily with the help of some unlikely allies. The anime’s story is set three decades after the previous 1989-1990 anime, with Yūko Mita and Toshio Furukawa returning from the previous anime to voice Akuma I / Shingo Umoregi and Mephisto II, respectively. Furukawa also plays Mephisto III, while Yuuki Kaji voices the protagonist, Akuma II / Ichirō Umoregi. The anime’s chief director is Junichi Sato, while Fumitoshi Oizaki is the series director, and Hiroshi Ohnogi is overseeing the series scripts. Toei Animation is in charge of production, and Netflix will stream the new anime worldwide this fall.

The anime is part of four “big projects” commemorating the 100-year anniversary of Shigeru Mizuki’s birth. Mizuki passed away in 2015 at the age of 93. Another project is the Kitarō Tanjō: Gegege no Nazo anime film, which will also be released on November 17. The manga previously inspired a television anime in 1989-1990, and two anime films premiered in 1989 and 1990. The new anime is the first one in 33 years and is based on the original manga, which follows the story of Akuma-kun, a boy who uses the powers of demons to help the world stay at peace.
