The official website for the Sakugan (formerly Sacks&Guns!!) television anime revealed two additional cast members on Tuesday. The sci-fi mecha anime premieres this fall.
Tsuyoshi Koyama (Sword Art Online: Alicization) will play Boss, the masked leader of an armed group called Shibito that targets and attacks central control towers in each colony. Misaki Watada (Sirius) will play Muuro, a member of Shibito who accompanies Boss. Despite her delicate appearance, she wields a gigantic, knife-like long sword with ease.
Kanon Amane (previously known as Kanon Obata) was selected from seven finalists for the role of the anime's heroine, Memenpu, in December 2019 following a public audition featuring 1400 participants. The main cast was then revealed last December. Yoshimasa Hosoya (Dorohedoro), Minami Tsuda (Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S), and Hikaru Midorikawa (Yu☆Gi☆Oh) were recently cast as Merooro, Linda, and Rufus, respectively. Tsuda and Midorikawa were revealed to be voicing characters in the anime at the time of the main cast announcement.
