The official website of the upcoming anime adaptation of Mission: Yozakura Family revealed cast members that will be voicing the main characters on Sep 25, 2023.
Character designs and Short character PVs showcasing the character voices were also unveiled along with the cast announcement.
Newly announced cast inclues:
- Reiji Kawashima as Taiyo Asano
I’ve been reading Jump since I was in elementary school and have been influenced by the anime. I never imagined that the day would come when I would be able to play the main character…I’m very honored! I learned from the seniors who played the Yozakura family’s siblings in a ridiculously attractive way, and I overlapped with Taiyo’s struggles and growth as a spy, and Taiyo’s life where he decided to “protect Mutsumi at all costs.” I’m going to do my best to record it so that it will be made into a wonderful anime, incorporating the life of voice actor Leiji Kawashima, who could proudly tell his elementary school self that he would play the main character of Jump!
- Kaede Hondo as Mutsumi Yozakura
I’m Kaede Hondo, and I’ll be the voice of Mutsumi Yozakura. The rich story of the unique Yozakura family is thrilling and heart-pounding. Just like reading the original work, I get excited while doing the dubbing! At the dubbing site, the Yozakura cast members were friendly and had fun talking about all sorts of things, and I feel like they’re a great team. I’m sure everyone will feel the good atmosphere, so I’ll continue to do my best! Thank you!
- Katsuyuki Konishi as Kyoichiro Yozakura
My name is Katsuyuki Konishi and I will be in charge of the role of Kyōichiro.
I’m so happy! ! As the eldest son, I want to keep my family together and give Mutsumi the highest level of love! !
thank you! Check it out! !
- Akari Kito as Futaba Yozakura
I’m Akari Kito, and I’m in charge of the CV for Yozakura Niba.
Niba is the eldest daughter who is stronger and more reliable than you can imagine from her cute appearance! As the eldest daughter, she watches over the unique and quirky Yozakura family, and I will do my best to convey to everyone in the anime the gap between her strength and cuteness!
