Seconds, already? That’s right! It’s time for more Onigiri

Earlier this week, the official Onigiri anime website unveiled two members of the show’s voice cast. The series will star the following:

  • Shizuka Gozen: Aina Suzuki
  • Yoshitsune: Eriko Matsui

The site also released character visuals for the two characters, as well as Ibaraki Doji, Kaguya, and Amaterasu.

A new visual for the show was also released on Tuesday, which you can check out below:

Onigiri is based on Cyberstep’s massively multiplayer online RPG of the same name. Takashi Yamamoto (Nanatsuiro Drops, Jewelpet Twinkle) will direct the project at studio Pierrot Plus, while Yukiko Ibe (Nanatsuiro Drops, Jewelpet Twinkle) fills the dual role of character designer and chief animation director. Takamitsu Kouno (Utawarerumono: The False Faces, We Without Wings) will take charge of series composition. The remaining staff includes:

  • Scripts: Takashi Aoshima
  • Scripts: Atsushi Oka
  • Art Director & Background Artist: Satoshi Shibata
  • Color Design: Junko Tsukidate
  • Prop Design: Kazutoshi Azuma
  • Sound Production: Zack Promotion

Idol unit Starmarie will perform the show’s opening song, Hime wa Rankiryu☆Goikkou-sama. The group previously performed the fourth ending theme for Cardfight!! Vanguard G.

Onigiri will kick off on Tokyo MX and BS Fuji on April 7, at 1:00AM local time.

In 2013, Onigiri received a three-episode web anime, which was directed by ROMANoV HiGA (Lovely Muco!). We’ve provided all three episodes below. Take care, though, as these are definitely not safe for work.
