The official website and Twitter for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Sankaku Head's comedy manga series Himouto! Umaru-chan announced the voice cast for its four main characters. Aimi Tanaka, who is currently playing small roles in Wish Upon the Pleiades and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, will play the protagonist Umaru Doma as her first lead role in her three-year anime VA career. The Masahiko Ohta (Yuruyuri, Sabagebu!)-directed TV anime is set for this July.
The manga has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump since 2013 and now five tankobon volumes are available in Japan. The story is set in Hachiouji-city in Tokyo and centers around a high school girl Umaru Doma and her older brother Taihei. While being a good-looking honor student who can do everything at school, Umaru turns a super lazy girl who does nothing except playing video games and eating her favorite junk foods at home.
