New Eromanga Sensei Anime Visual Hits The Web


You know, it’s pretty hard to draw manga while laying in bed. Just saying.

Earlier today, the official Eromanga Sensei anime website updated with a new key visual. The image features leading lady Sagiri Izumi in a pink dress, sprawled out on her bed.

Eromanga Sensei will hit Japanese TV in April 2017.

The Eromanga Sensei anime is based on a light novel series of the same name by Tsukasa Fushimi and illustator Hiro Kanzaki. Ryohei Takeshita will direct the series at A-1 Pictures, with Tatsuya Takahashi (And you thought there is never a girl online?, Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn) writing the scripts.

In March, it was announced that Shinichiro Kashiwada (Oreimo 2, Sword Art Online) will serve as producer, and that Aniplex is in charge of overall production.

The confirmed voice cast includes:

  • Sagiri Izumi: Akane Fujita
  • Masamune Izumi: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
  • Megumi Jinno: Ibuki Kido
  • Elf Yamada: Minami Takahashi
  • Muramasa Senju: Saori Onishi
  • Tomoe Takasago: Yui Ishikawa

Several character visuals were released to promote the Eromanga Sensei anime, which you can check out below:
