We previously listed Buncololi and illustrator Kantoku’s Sasaki and Peeps light novel series as one to catch up with before the premiere of the anime adaptation, and now we have a better idea of when to expect the latter. A new trailer made its way online, announcing a January 2024 debut and more cast members.
The latest cast additions include Miyu Tomita as Elsa, Inori Minase as Magical Pink and Ryotaro Okiayu as Akutsu. They join previously announced actors like Tomokazu Sugita as Sasaki, Aoi Yuki as Peeps/Pii-chan, Rie Takahashi as Hoshizaki and Akari Kito as next-door neighbor.
Check out the trailer:
The Sasaki and Peeps anime is being directed by Mirai Minato (Masamune-kun’s Revenge), with Deko Akao (Komi Can’t Communicate) writing and overseeing scripts for the SILVER LINK production.
Yen Press publishes the original novels in English and describes them like so:
Even though Sasaki’s droll corporate life is constantly filled with work, it leaves him tired and unfulfilled at the end of every day. In search of some companionship to fill the emptiness in his life, he visits a pet shop on a whim, not realizing he’s about to change his life forever. After settling on an adorable bird and bringing it home…his new roommate reveals that it’s actually an incredible sage from another world who promptly bestows Sasaki with supernatural powers as well as the ability to cross between worlds. All Sasaki wants to do is use these newfound powers to live in peace and comfort, but there are more than a few colorful characters who might get in the way of that…
