Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer revealed its main cast members for its upcoming anime adaptation, set to broadcast this summer. More information and a new key visual will be released later on.
The anime series is headlined by Junya Enoki as the main protagonist Yuuhi Amamiya and Naomi Ohzora as the heroine Samidare Asahina. Kenjirou Tsuda is voicing Noi Crezant and Azusa Tadokoro is playing Hisame Asahina.
Nobuaki Nakanishi (Mangirl!) will be directing the adaptation while Yuuichirou Momose (So I’m a Spider, So What?) will be the main screenwriter. Original manga creator Satoshi Mizukami is helping Momose with writing the series’ scripts.
The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer manga ran from 2005 to 2010. 10 tankoubon volumes have been published so far under Shounen Gahosha’s Young King Comics label.
Seven Seas Entertainment, which published the manga in North America, describes the story as:
Everything about college student Amamiya Yuuhi is average: grades, looks and his blasé outlook on life. So what happens when he awakens one day to a talking lizard, who informs him that there is a gigantic hammer in outer space, poised to split the Earth into pieces, and requests his allegiance in the fight against the forces of evil? Pretend it never happened! Unfortunately for Yuuhi, a little bit of coercion in the form of a super-powered princess prevents him from returning to his mediocre life-as-usual.
In the adventure of his lifetime, Yuuhi will join forces with the unpredictable princess and seek out a motley crew of companions to fight back against an evil mage and his horrifyingly powerful homunculus before the Biscuit Hammer destroys the planet!
