More cast and Japanese broadcast schedule revealed for upcoming comic fantasy adaptation
New cast members, a new preview video, and the Japanese broadcast schedule have all been revealed for Dragon Goes House-Hunting (known in Japan as Dragon, Ie wo Kau.), an upcoming TV anime based on the comic fantasy manga written by Kawo Tanuki and illustrated by Choco Aya about a fledgling red dragon who is kicked out of his home for being too cowardly and who must seek accommodations elsewhere. The new cast members include:
Kento Itō as Hero.
Chiaki Takahashi as Thief.
Daisuke Hirakawa as White Mage.
Koutaro Nishiyama as Archer.
M・A・O as Albert.
And Takashi Kondō as Huey.
The original Dragon Goes House-Hunting manga is serialized in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Garden shonen manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story of the series as follows:
When a dragon fails to live up to the fearsome standards set for him, his family kicks him out. He embarks on a quest to find a new home, but soon finds that life on the road is no place for a cowardly beast of legend. In a fantasy world full of elves, dwarves, and other mythical creatures, where everyone wants a piece of him—literally!—the frustrations of house-hunting reach a whole new level.
The Dragon Goes House-Hunting TV anime is directed by Haruki Kusagamori and features animation production by SIGNAL.MD. The series will broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
- TOKYO MX: every Sunday during the 22:00 time slot beginning on April 04, 2021.
- Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation: every Monday during the 26:59 time slot beginning on April 05, 2021.
- BS Fuji: every Tuesday during the 24:00 time slot beginning on April 06, 2021.
Please note that some Japanese broadcast schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 26:59 time slot on Monday evening is actually on Tuesday morning at 2:59am JST. Dragon Goes House-Huntinging will also stream in the United States via Funimation as part of their Spring 2021 simulcast lineup.
