The official website of Urusei Yatsura revealed three more cast members who will voice the characters Onsen Mark, Tsubame Ozuno, and Ryoko Mendo on Sep 22, 2022.
The newly announced cast along with their comments are as follows:
Kenta Miyake, known for voicing All Might in MHA, will voice Onsen Mark
Onsen Mark is an overbearing authority figure for Ataru and his friends, but I want him to be a villain who will always get them into trouble. I would like to play the role of Onsen Mark as “an overbearing authority figure, but a villain who is sure to make a fool of himself” for Ataru and his friends. In addition, I hope I can add a little bit of cute, somewhat lovable charm. ……
Takahiro Sakurai, who voiced Reigen in Mob Psycho 100, will voice Tsubame Ozuno
Far from the image of an exorcist, he is a cheerful and calm character who always seems to be involved with Ataru and his friends to the detriment of others.
A bit of a clumsiness is what makes him attractive. I don’t think it’s necessary to add too much seasoning, so I’d like to be able to express the fun of the dialogue.
Marina Inoue, who voiced Armin in AOT, will voice Ryoko Mendo
Ryoko is the most bizarre girl of all.
Everything she does is crazy, and the fact that she enjoys it to the fullest is both terrifying and amusing.
I would like to do my best to disturb her so that I can be the hot spice of her work.
A character visual for Kotatsu Neko was also released along with others.
