The Chihayafuru staff recently held the “Chihayafuru week in Awara 2019” event in Awara City, Fukui Prefecture last weekend. During the event, they announced casting changes to replace the late seiyuu, Toshiko Fujita and Unshou Ishizuka. Both seiyuu passed away last year.

Toshiko Fujita previously voiced Taeko Miyauchi in the anime. But now, Yoshino Ohtori will be replacing the late seiyuu for the role. Meanwhile, Kenta Miyake will be replacing the legendary Unshou Ishizuka for the role of Dr. Harada.

Madhouse will be animating the project, with Morio Asaka returning from previous seasons to direct. As for its cast, much of them will be returning. In fact, they already confirmed that the main three cast members are going to be back!

  • Asami Seto as Chihaya Ayase
