AKB48 Anime Series – Voice Cast Announced

14 12 2011

Today saw the announcement of the 9 members from the 000 family who will voice the 9 main characters in the new AKB48 anime series called AKB0048 which is set to debut on Japanese TV in Spring 2012. Every member in the 000 family had a chance to audition for a part in the show and they were whittled down to 30 last week before a final audition took place in front of a judging panel of 4 people consisting of Aki-P and 3 other people who work in the anime industry.

So, the final 9 came down to these lucky members:

Amina Sato (Team B)
Mayu Watanabe (Team B)
Mao Mita (NMB Kenkyuusei)
Sawako Hato (SKE48 Team KII)
Sumire Sato (Team B)
Kumi Yagami (SKE48 Team S)
Karen Iwate (AKB48 Kenkyuusei)
Sayaka Nakaya (Team A)
Haruka Ishida (Team B)

Team B has 4 members in the cast. I sort of had a feeling that Mayuyu would be one of the cast members seeing as she loves anime and manga so I expect she gave it her all in the auditions to try and impress the judges.

4 other members whilst not getting a part as one of the main roles will still get to have a small role as other characters in the anime are as follows: Miyu Takeuchi (Team 4), Momoka Kinoshita (NMB48 Kenkyuusei), Anna Murashige (HKT48 First Class) and Airi Furukawa (SKE48 Team KII).

Well done to all 9 members.
