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: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
