The Hayate cast list has been announced.
- Hayate Ayasaki – Ryoko Shiraishi
- Nagi Sanzenin – Rie Kugimiya
- Maria – Rie Tanaka
- Hinagiku Katsura – Shizuka Itou
Hmm… that was quite far from my earlier predictions :P. But still, this doesn’t sound like a bad list. Ryoko Shiraishi’s voice has a rough edge to it, so her voice would fit well with Hayate. Rie Kugimiya as Nagi is perfect, while Rie Tanaka doing Maria was surprising but she’s got a good track record of playing meido’s and her reputation is well known so no worries there. Shizuka Itou as Hinagiku is.. well, I haven’t had much experience with her other roles before, so I’m not sure how it would turn out to be.
Now to wait for the airing date announcement :)
Also, listening to Rie Kugimiya’s Nagi… some what felt she isn’t too “sharp”… perhaps they animated the “deredere” scenes more. Also seems that the anime might have a lot of weirdness to it… hopefully they won’t stray out of the manga too much.
