Ninja Slayer’s Cast Announced, Stars Toshiyuki Morikawa

In December, the first trailer for Trigger’s adaptation of Ninja Slayer From Animation made its way online. And, while it was short, the 45-second teaser was a sign that production was moving forward as planned.

Yesterday, the title’s cast list was revealed on the official Ninja Slayer website. The full list is as follows:

  • Ninja Slayer: Toshiyuki Morikawa
  • Dark Ninja: Sho Hayami
  • Nancy Lee: Chiwa Saito
  • Yamamoto: Sora Amamiya
  • Yukano: Risa Taneda
  • Laomoto Khan: Masane Tsukayama
  • Clone Yakuza: Tesshō Genda
  • Electronic Maiko: Noto Mamiko
  • Scatter: Takahiro Mizushima
  • Narrator: Goblin

Anime News Network reports that the cast is the same as that of the audio drama.

The announcement comes ahead of a planned special “Red Stage” showing at the Anime Japan 2015 trade show.
