Code Geass’s Goro Taniguchi is actually not directing the project, but instead providing creative guidance as a producer. The real project director is Hisashi Saito (from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai and Sora no Otoshimono).
Vocal talent includes:
- Ayaka Ohashi as Uzume Uno
- Minami Tsuda as Sasara
- Sora Tokui as Katia
- Chinatsu Akasaki as Shimeji
- Akiko Hasegawa as Akari
- Sayaka Oohara as Madeleine
Most of these voice actresses haven’t had much screen time, but I’ve enjoyed some of their work in other series. I really liked Minami Tsuda as Yui Funami from YuruYuri, as well as Chinatsu Akasaki as Shinka Nibutani from Chuunibyou. I think my favorite character from Fantasista Dolls will most likely be Sasara, just from the design and seiyuu.
Even if this series plays out like a “generic” mahou shoujo type anime, I wouldn’t say that has to be a bad thing. I’m actually looking forward to a fun, easy-going series.
The series is being produced by Hoods Entertainment and will air in July.
