Love Kome -We Love Rice- Gets New Visual; Kenjiro Tsuda Joins The Cast

So… I’m still wagering that the marketing will use the term “yummy rice boys” at some point. Just a hunch.

Yesterday, the official Love Kome -We Love Rice- anime website updated with a new visual. The image features the five leads, each of whom are holding a bowl of rice.

The site also confirmed that Kenjiro Tsuda will join the show’s cast as Koshihikari.

Love Kome -We Love Rice- will hit Japanese TV in April. Takashi Horiuchi will direct the project at Encourage Films, with Tomoyo Sawada providing character designs. Yūki Takabayashi, who came up with the original concept, is in charge of series composition.

Comic Smart’s free Ganma! website will launch a manga-tie in on February 24.

The confirmed voice cast includes:

  • Nishiki Sasa: Chiharu Sawashiro
  • Hikari Hino: Mark Ishii
  • Akitakomachi: Misae Komori
  • Nikomaru: Nina Tamashiro
  • Hitomebore: Sousuke Souma
  • Ann: Junya Enoki
  • Shock: Yuto Suzuki
  • Carry: Genki Okawa
  • Chinko Bouzu: Tomokazu Sugita
  • Mori no Kuma-san: Mafia Kajita
  • Mana Musume: Natsuko Hara
  • Clow: Shuuta Morishita
  • Koro-nee: Miho Masaka
  • Camembert: Hipo
  • Gurumi: Saori Murakita
  • Guruko: Kaori Saito
  • Gurue: Rico Sasaki

Love Kome -We Love Rice- was first unveiled in November. The series stars five young men, who are based on different types of rice. These starchy singles come together to form idol unit Love Rice. Together, the fellows vow to perform at their school’s Harvest Festival where they’ll show just how awesome rice is, in comparison to bread.

Several character visuals were released to promote Love Kome -We Love Rice. You can check these out below:
