On Monday, the official website for the anime TV show My Home Hero added three new cast members and posted a new image for the show. The anime will be based on the manga of the same name, which was written by Naoki Yamakawa and drawn by Masashi Asaki. It will air in April 2023.
In the series, a middle-aged office worker named Tetsuo Tosu gets involved in the criminal underworld. After confronting the abusive boyfriend of his daughter and killing him by accident, the average toymaker turns to a life of crime.
Back in June, it was announced that the manga would be turned into an anime, but things are starting to move faster as the cast and visuals come out. The new key visual is amazing and really shows how Tetsuo is living two lives. Koichi Yamadera, who played Spike in Cowboy Bebop, will play Shino, Katsuhiro Tokuishi will play Takeda, and Mitsuhiro Sakamaki will play Tabata, according to three new cast announcements that came out with the visual. To review, Junichi Suwabe will play Tetsuo Tosu, Sayaka Ohara will play Kasen Tosu, and Chihiro Shirata will play Reika Tosu, among other roles.
