With seiyuus like Tomokazu Sugita, Shinnosuke Tachibana, Jun Fukuyama, and Daisuke Ono voicing the four main characters, the latest “idol anime,” Sekkou Boys, may be a bit unconventional, but its star power promises to be worth it. The anime is about four classical statues getting turned into idols, and its very first PV has finally been streamed by media factory!
Watch out UtaPri, you guys are certainly in trouble with Sekkou Boys around! A new visual for the idol anime, which also features their newbie manager, Miki Ishimoto, has also been posted.
The cast is led by Tomokazu Sugita (Gintama’s Gintoki, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya’s Kyon), who will be voicing Saint Giorgio, Jun Fukuyama (Code Geass’ Lelouch Lamperouge, Assassination Classroom’s Koro-sensei) as Hermes, Shinnosuke Tachibana (Mekakucity Actors’ Shuuya Kano and Gundam Build Fighters’ Nils Nielsen) as Medici, and Daisuke Ono (Durarara!!’s Shizuo Heiwajima and Black Butler’s Sebastian Michaelis) as Mars. This 4-statue idol unit will be managed by the inexperienced Miki Ishimoto, voiced by Shiho Kokido (PreCure’s Aroma).
Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches director, Tomoki Takuno, will be at the helm of this unique idol anime. which is slated to make its premiere on January 2016 as part of Tokyo MX’s Ultra Super Anime Time programming block. The animation will be produced by Lidden Films.
