Two more actresses have joined the voice cast of Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou, the upcoming anime adaptation of the manga of the same name.
Stepping into the role of Matsuri Shiina, protagonist Aki's older sister, is Ai Kayano (Ryoko Sakaki in Food Wars!). She's a dependable big sister who likes looking after Aki, but also has a childish side to her.
Appearing as Yao Nishiki is Shizuka Ito (Hinagiku) in Hayate the Combat Butler. Yao owns the liquor shop where Ayaka helps out.
Performing the series's ED theme, "Sonna no Boku ja Nai," will be Shino Shimoji, who recently appeared in and sang the second ED for Seiren.
On top of all that, the manga is celebrating a major milestone! The series has surpassed 350,000 sales for all three volumes combined, counting both ebooks and print books. To celebrate, creator Nekoume released this new piece of art.
Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou kicks off this summer.
