Meanwhile, Sakurako Oohara (Natsuzora) will also star in the series as Piple’s creator, Kaede Miyama.
Mai Sakai will be directing the series, with Yasuke Taki writing the scripts. As for Yuuki Kaji, he actually voiced the character in the web audio drama. The response was so good that it lead him to star in the live-action adaptation!
