The original TV anime Tsuki ga Kirei (The Moon is Beautiful) has announced its four main cast members: Shouya Chiba, Konomi Kohara, Atsushi Tamaru, and Rie Murakawa! The anime will start on April, 2017.
Chiba will be playing Kotarou Azumi, the president of the literary club who loves to read and dreams of becoming a novelist. He is very calm and peaceful, and does not stand out in class.
Kohara will be playing Akane Mizuno, a girl who belongs to the track and field club. Although she has an easygoing character, she can be both bossy and timid at times and tends to worry about what other people at school think of her.
This story’s about the adolescent romance between Kotarou and Akane who, in their 3rd year of middle school, are in the same class for the first time.
Tamaru will be playing Takumi Hira, the captain of the track and field club. Takumi does very well at school, and makes it every year to the prefectural tournament as a sprinter. He has a high reputation of being both an excellent student and an outstanding athlete.
Akane and Takumi are both sprinters on the same team, and Takumi has had a crush on Akane since first year. However, he has never confessed his feelings to anyone, including Akane. We can assume that Takumi will become one of the key characters in the story.
Finally, Murakawa will be the voice of Chinatsu Nishio, who also belongs to the track-and-field club. She is popular with both boys and girls, and she is Akane’s best friend. She is a very cheerful and innocent girl (who has the tendency of wanting other people’s things), and is friendly to anyone.
On March 25 and 26, the huge anime event AnimeJapan2017 will be held at Tokyo Big Sight. There will be a special stage event for Tsuki ga Kirei, prior to its anime’s broadcast. The event will start at 11:35 on March 25. In addition to the four main cast members, the guests on stage will be Kishi Seiji, the director of the anime, and Takeshi Minami, the producer. The event will definitely become a great opportunity to learn about the story’s many aspects before the anime starts!
