"Just Because!" Original Anime Cast Grows by Nine
Original anime production Just Because! is preparing for next month’s premiere, debuting nine new characters on their official website.
Yoriko Inui (CV Arisa Sakuraba): A long-time friend of Hazuki’s since childhood. She’s been admitted to college on a sports scholarship.
Sanae Takahashi (CV Yuka Nukui): Another member of the group — of all the other, she’s known Mio the longest.
Tooka Suzuki (CV Reina Kondo): A talkative student who’s looking into studying fashion at a vocational school.
Mayuka Satou (CV Sayaka Senbongi): A friend of Mio’s, the most popular girl in class. She’s dating a college boy, but is frustrated by how long it takes to get him to reply to her.
Junpei Saruwatari (CV Kouhei Amasaki): A third-year student who retired from the school’s baseball team the previous summer. He misses playing, but is now studying hard to get into a good school.
Rikuto Ishigaki (CV Shouta Yamamoto): A third year and catcher in the baseball team. Unlike Junpei, he chooses to balance sports and studying.
Tooru Shimizu (CV Junichi Yanagita): A second-year student and member of the school’s photography club. He tends to complain a lot, as well as taking candid photos of the student body.
Kaoru Yamaguchi (CV Daiki Kobayashi): A gentle second-year student in the photography club, who listens to Tooru’s complaining and always seems to know what to say.
Watanabe-sensei (CV Toru Ohkawa): Nicknamed “Ben-san” by his students. A teacher who’s just the right mix of serious and laid-back, making him popular among the students.
Just Because! focuses on a group of high school students nearing graduation, and what happens when their old friend Eita transfers back into their school after four years away. It premieres October 5 on TOKYO MX, AT-X, and other stations.
