bakuten!! anime

Another cast member has joined the team for the upcoming Bakuten!! anime, which is an original series centered on the world of men’s rhythmic gymnastics. The latest to be added to the cast is Ayane Sakura—known for roles ranging from Ochaco Uraraka in My Hero Academia to Gabi Braun in Attack on Titan Final Season—who will be voicing second year student and manager of the gymnastics club Asawo Kurikoma.

Asawo always seems to have the same facial expression, making her tough to read. She puts her technical prowess to work to do things like use 3D models on her tablet to better explain how to pull off gymnastic moves to the team.

Here’s a look at the character’s design:

And a recent promo:

Toshimasa Kuroyanagi directs the Bakuten!! anime at production house ZEXCS, and the fun begins when the show hits TV in Japan on April 8.
