A new cast member has been announced for Bakuten!!, an upcoming original TV anime about a group of high school boys who experience the unique world of men's rhythmic gymnastics together.


A character setting of Shuusaku Shida, a slender man with a gentle expression who acts as the coach for the men's rhythmic gymnastics club at Soshukan High School in the upcoming Bakuten!! TV anime.


In Bakuten!!, voice actor Takahiro Sakurai plays Shuusaku Shida, the gentle-hearted coach of the Soshukan High School men's rhythmic gymnastics club.

The story of Bakuten!! follows Shotaro Futaba, a high school student who develops a passion for men's rhythmic gymnastics in his third year in junior high. When Shotaro enrolls in Soshukan High School, a private academy, he joins the men's rhythmic gymnastics club and pursues his youthful athletic dreams with a group of unique young men who share laughter and tears together.
