The official website for the upcoming four-episode TV anime Kono Danshi, Mahou ga Oshigoto Desu. (This Boy, Works with Magic), the 5th “Kono Dan.” series produced by CoMix Wave Films, opened today, announcing its director and two main voice cast.
25-year-old Soubi Yamamoto, who worked on the previous three anime and one drama CD of the series, serves as the director again. She previously directed the 12-episode Meganebu! TV anime series for Studio DEEN in 2013, but it was a commercial and critical failure.
31-year-old Yuuki Ono, best known as Taiga Kagami in the Kuroko’s Basketball series, is cast as Chiharu Kashima (dark hair/28-year-old), a government official who works for Magic Bureau’s crisis team. 22-year-old Taku Yashiro, who has mainly voiced sub characters without names since his debut in 2013, plays Toyohi Utsumi (red hair/22-year-old), a permanent part-timer who falls in love with
Chiharu on the day they first meet at the bar.
Kono Danshi, Mahou ga Oshigoto Desu. will be aired for four weeks on Japanese terrestrial network
sometime in 2016.
