Toyosaki: "I am very happy because Homura is my favorite one among the characters."
The official website for the ongoing TV anime adaptation of Riichiro Inagaki (story) and Boichi (art)'s sci-fi adventure manga Dr. STONE announced two additional voice cast today: Akira Ishida (Kaworu Nagisa in Neon Geneis Evangelion) as Hyoga, a killer sent from Tsukasa's Empire of Might, and Aki Toyosaki (Yui Hirasawa in K-On!) as Homura, his right-hand person.
Message from Akira Ishida:
"I am going to play Hyoga, whose important thing is 'to do everything right.' For the future of Stone World, what is the right thing to do? Senku's idea to try to restore civilization, Tsukasa's policy to offer equality? Or a completely different idea, which is not either of them, will be needed? While playing Hyoga, I will carefully watch how the story will end up going."
Message from Aki Toyosaki:
"I have always liked the original manga and read it, so I am honored to be involved as an anime cast. Many unique characters appear in the story, and I am very happy because Homura is my favorite one among them! Homura moves more gracefully in the anime, and I will do my best to play her attractive. Please look forward to her appearance in the anime along with Hyoga!"
The TV anime adaptation co-animated by TMS Entertainment and 8PAN premiered in Japan on July 5, 2019, and has also been simulcast on Crunchyroll to its members worldwide excluding Asia.
