It’s been a big week for updates about one of the most hotly anticipated series of the summer 2018 season, Miss caretaker of Sunohara-sou. Based on the romantic comedy manga that debuted in 2014 in Manga 4-Koma Palette magazine and originally created by Nekoume, Miss caretaker of Sunohara-sou was first announced to be getting a TV anime adaptation back in November 2017 and fans have been clamoring for new updates ever since.
Along with the new key visual which was revealed earlier this week (pictured to the right), we can now add two more cast members to the already growing list along with the artist who will be performing the ending theme song.
The new cast members are (character names are listed first):
Nishiki Yao – Shizuka Itou (Haruka in Amagami SS, Irina in Assassination Classroom, Hinagiku in Hayate the Combat Butler)
Matsuri Shiina – Ai Kayano (Menma in anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Kanade in Chihayafuru, Darkness in KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!)
They join the already announced cast members which include:
Ayaka Sunohara – Rina Satou
Aki Shiina – Eri Kitamura
Nana – Ayane Sakura
Yuzu Yukimoto – Natsumi Takamori
Sumire Yamanashi – Asami Seto
Yuri Kazami – Yume Miyamoto
As for the crew that will be bringing this series to life, Silver Link (Anne-Happy, Baka and Test, Brave Witches, Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody) will be providing the animation with Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test, Invaders of the Rokujyouma!?, WATAMOTE) sitting in as chief director while Mirai Minato (Masamune-kun’s Revenge, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya) will be directing and Keisuke Inoue will be serving as assistant director.

Anime-Planet describes the story as:
Aki Shiina is a middle school boy who wants to be more manly. The story follows the relationships between Aki Shiina and Ayaka Sunohara (the maternal caretaker of the Sunohara dormitory), as well as Aki’s older female schoolmates.
The series is set to premiere at some point in July 2018 and I personally cannot wait to watch it! Will you be checking out this series in July? Sound off in the comments!
