In addition to the previously announced leads of Rie Takahashi (Megumin in KONOSUBA) as Kyoko Hoshino and Mikako Komatsu (Maki Zen’in in JUJUTSU KAISEN) as Lili, here are the latest cast members:

Momose’s manga was serialized in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ from 2019 to 2020, and won the grand prize of the second edition of the Jump Vertical Scroll Manga Award. As the trailer above shows, the series follows Kyoko Hoshino, a girl who refuses to fall in love, and Lili, a wizard who aims to make her fall in love. 

Kazuya Ichikawa (The World Ends With You the Animation) is on board as director, with Sayuri Ohba (Sasaki and Miyano) on series composition and scripts along with fellow script writer Yuko Fukuda (I’m Quitting Heroing). Arisa Matsuura (Outburst Dreamer Boys) is on character designs and Ryu Kawasaki and Tomoyuki Kono are on music for the DOMERICA production.
