Silver Spoon Anime Introduces Its Cast

The anime adaptation of Fullmetal Alchemist creator Hiromu Arakawa’s agricultural manga Silver Spoon is getting ready to kick off in Japan on July 11, and the first full trailer is here to introduce the series’ main cast to the tune of miwa’s opening theme, “Kiss you.”

Silver Spoon is directed by Tomohiko Ito (Occult Academy, Sword Art Online) at A-1 Pictures, and features scripts by Bunny Drop‘s Taku Kishimoto and character designs and chief animation direction by Jun Nakai (The Sacred Blacksmith, Mardock Scramble movies). Crunchyroll announced plans to stream the series alongside its Japanese run at this weekend’s Anime Expo convention.

Ryohei Kimura (L-Elf in Valvrave the Liberator, Kodaka Hasegawa in Haganai) plays Yūgo Hachiken, who finds himself more confused than anything as he enters agricultural school. Other cast members include Marie Miyake (Ami Kirino in Place to Place) as Aki Mikage, Nobunaga Shimazaki (Kazuya Maeda in Photo Kano) as Shinnosuke Aikawa, and Tooru Sakurai (Yamada in Ishida and Asakura) as Ichirō Komaba.
