“Love Stage!!” anime finalized cast list

May 11, 2014 // love stage!!

In case you haven’t heard, we’ve finally got a complete cast list for the upcoming Love Stage!! anime! Prepare yourselves, kids, because this is one heck of a lineup…!

Sena Izumi CV. Yonaga Tsubasa
Ichijou Ryouma CV. Eguchi Takuya
Sena Shougo CV. DAIGO
Sagara Rei CV. Hirakawa Daisuke

Sena Seiya CV. Okiayu Ryoutarou
Sena Nagisa CV. Oohara Sayaka
Kuroi Takahiro CV. Kimura Ryouhei
Sotomura Kousuke CV. Yamamoto Kazutomi

Shino Kasumi CV. Sakai Kyouko
Ryuuzaki Kojirou CV. Morikubo Shoutarou
Hidaka Tenma CV. Majima Jyunji

As you can see…the two biggest additions to our already formidable MC list are DAIGO as Sena Shougo and Hirakawa Daisuke as Sagara Rei. Daigo, if you’re not aware, is the real-life model of Shougo and the younger brother of Eiki Eiki, one of the two mangaka of the series! He’s a fan of the series already, and given that he’s a musician with some seiyuu work under his belt, there really was no one else who could’ve filled so perfect a role! As for Rei’s seiyuu, many may know Hirakawa-san from his recent work on swimmine anime Free!…where he played another glasses-wearing character named Rei :D

On this amusingly coincidental lineup of Free!-related characters, Zaou Taishi had the following to say on her official blog:

I’d like to make one thing clear, though!

We made the offer to Izumi’s “Nagisa” Yonaga-san and Rei’s “Megane” Hirakawa-san BEFORE Free! started last year!! And the fact that there are characters named “Haru” and “Rinpei”…as well as the fact that the air time for the show will overlap with Free!’s…is a complete and utter but amazing coincidence!

Crazy, huh! (#^.^#)

And then…THERE’S DAIGO! (haha) So all of you who said DAIGO would be perfect…you’d better be prepared to take responsibility (along with me)! (^O^)

One day after we recorded a scene, DAIGO said… “Oneechan…I think I might have just reached my limit as a seiyuu…”

Whaaaaaaaa???? \(゜ロ\)(/ロ゜)/

So pure, but happy, coincidence!

We leave you now with new character designs for the above cast!


  1. Ohhhh Yess!!!! I was literally freakin’ out!! XD and many have forgotten the fact that DAIGO is indeed related to Eiki Eiki XD… But I think he’s only voiced a couple of characters before, so this will be epic because the false group Crusherz is based off of the group BREAKERZ ^_^… I am so super psyched for this anime!! XD… This and Free! Eternal Summer… and Sailor Moon Crystal… *life is bliss*

  2. I read the newn on ANN but still I’m soooo excited :D

    And July is not even that far away anymore <3

  3. Soooo exciting cant wait for the anime to come out XD

  4. Thanks so much for all the information. The character designs are gorgeous!

  5. Wohooo….Thanksss a lot for all of these infos, I sooo can’t wait for summer to watch this and Free 2nd Season too!!^^

  6. Can’t wait!! *^*
    Hirakawa Daisuke <3

  7. Thank you!

  8. I was really hoping this would happen and I’m so happy~ *-* DAIGO~ Yay!! x3

  9. Oh my gosh! I am so happy that Daigo is voicing over Shougo. I really love Daigo’s sense of humor and I can’t wait how it would come across him being Shougo.

    Thank you for the information. :)

  10. I can’t wait for the anime <3 <3 <3 so many to watch out for :D

  11. Thank you for the update!! ehehehehe! can’t wait!

  12. This is great. I like DAIGO. Dude’s funny as heck, too. As a matter of fact, every time someone mentions DAIGO, I remember there was this one time (I can’t even remember what show it was) that he was trying to convince this American guy(?) that he was a famous comedian in Japan, and the guy totally did not believe him. It might or might not have been scripted, but it was pretty funny. I like DAIGO.

    I liked Takuya Eguchi as Satoshi Ōsugi in East of Eden. I haven’t really encountered any of his other works (except for KnB, and that’s pretty minor), so I’m really excited to hear his Ryouma in all of it’s true glory–not just clips here and there.

    Hirakawa Daisuke has one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard. He has, I dunno… His voice is just so…Broadway? Theatrical? Over-the-top-in-a-totally-feel-good-way? Sometimes he give me chills, you know? I am sooooo psyched about hearing the guy twice over this summer.

    Welp, guess I’ll be perving harder than usual this summer.

    Oh, yes. Yes, I will.

    Thanks for the list, btw. *sigh* Why is September scans always so awesome? Geez <3
