Question: Who’s the newest member of the 7O3X cast?

Yesterday, Toei Animation started streaming a pair of promo videos for 7O3X: Fastest Finger First (Nana Maru San Batsu, lit. 7○3×, or “7 Right, 3 Wrong”).

The first teaser asks if viewers can tell who was cast to play Yōsuke Ashiya in the series.

The second reveals the answer: Wataru Hatano was tapped to play the character.

A third teaser hit the web late last night, which asks fans to guess another voice role. The answer will be unveiled on June 18.

7O3X: Fastest Finger First will première on NTV’s AnichU block on July 4, at 25:59 (7/5/2017 at 1:59AM). The series is slated to run for twelve episodes.

7O3X: Fastest Finger First will adapt Igura Sugimoto’s Nana Maru San Batsu manga series. Masaki Ōzora (Dirty Pair: Affair on Nolandia, Lupin III: Dragon of Doom) is directing the project at TMS Entertainment, with Makoto Takahoko (Thunder Jet) providing character designs. Yuuko Kakihara (Chihayafuru 2, Orange) is in charge of series composition.
