Adaptation based on psychological horror manga by Tomiyaki Kagisora hits Japanese TV on July 13, 2018
Happy Sugar Life, an upcoming TV anime based on the psychological horror manga by Tomiyaki Kagisora about a girl who is willing to kill to protect what she loves, has announced a cast change for the role of Daichi Kitaumekawa, a head teacher at the school the protagonist attends.
Voice actor Yūichirō Umehara was originally cast in the role, but because Umehara is currently recuperating from an illness, voice actor Kaito Ishikawa has been selected to take Umehara's place. Commenting on his casting, Ishikawa stated that he was surprised at the depths of darkness that the characters sink to in the original work, and that he's dedicating himself to capturing that feeling in his performance. The staff of Happy Sugar Life also wished Yūichirō Umehara a speedy recovery.
The original Happy Sugar Life manga is serialized in Square Enix's Monthly Gangan Joker shonen manga magazine. The story follows Sato Matsuzaka, a high school girl who experiences a wonderfully sweet feeling whenever she's around Shiori, a young girl whom Sato adores. Sato is willing to do anything to protect that special feeling, including committing crimes such as blackmail, kidnapping, and murder.
The Happy Sugar Life TV anime is directed by Keizō Kusakawa and Nobuyoshi Nagayama and features animation production by Ezo’la. The series will broadcast on Mainichi Broadcasting System and Tokyo Broadcasting system beginning on July 13, 2018, with additional broadcasts to follow later on BS-TBS and AT-X.
