Voice actor Jun Fukuyama of Nura Rikuo.
Yui Horie of heroine Yuki Onna/Oikawa Tsurara.
Tomokazu Sugita of Zen.
Fukuyama said he's excited to star a Shonen Jump anime since he's a reader of the magazine himself. About the other cast members, he really admires veteran voice actor Chikao Otsuka who is casted as Rikuo's grandfather Nurarihyon, and looking forward to work with.
Yui Horie confessed she was nicknamed Yuki Onna(scary snow woman in Japanese folklore) in primary school, which might help her get into character.
Sugita explained his role Zen is "crazy about Rikuo". Although Zen is weak and his days are numbered, Sugita said he'd like to give him a "burning life".
Illustration for Konami's trading card game(due July) was shown for the first time.
A kakejiku is also to be released by Konami.
