ewcomer Gakuto Kajiwara will voice Asta with Seiyu Award winner Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!!'s Haruka Nanase) as Yuno. The two were voiced by Shun Horie and Soma Saito in a previous Xebec produced special.
Looks like the Black Clover TV anime is going to have something of a Tōō Academy school reunion. According to an early look at next week's issue of Jump, joining Gakuto Kajiwara as Asta and Seiyu Award winner Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!!'s Haruka Nanase - Kuroko's Basketball's Ryō Sakurai) as Yuno will be Seiyu Award winner Junichi Suwabe (Kurobas' Daiki Aomine, Fate/stay night's Archer, Space Dandy) as Black Bull Squad captain Yami Sukehiro.
Newcomer Gakuto Kajiwara (Eromanga Sensei background character) as Asta
Nobunaga Shimazaki (World Trigger's Hyuse, Free!'s Haruka Nanase, My Love Story!!'s Makoto Sunakawa) as Yuno
They will announce more:
Weekly Shonen Jump will reveal the character design and voice actor for Yami in the 34th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump on Monday. The show's staff will also reveal more information at the upcoming "Jump Victory Carnival 2017" event, which takes place in Tokyo on July 22 and in Osaka on July 29.
According to FUNimation, they just reveal the episode count which is 13 episodes
Good or bad depending on your perspective
This is the shortest shonen anime I seen to date with their first opening season
There was another Shonen anime adaptation of a young manga series, Twin Exorcists, they went full 50 episodes or so with lots of filler
This might create another expectation. Because if an anime is short, some people's expectations would want the anime to do up to their standards because it's short. Those 12 episodes will make or break the franchise's success
Taka: I'm going to make new discussion threads for Winter 2020 anime while trying to finish unfinished business for Fall 2019.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.

Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
