Anime Expo 2019
“SHIKIZAKURA” is the first TV animation series with 12 episodes, created in the Tokai region (Central Japan). It is scheduled to be on-air in 2020.
The production company of the series is SUBLIMATION, known for their works such as the “Love Live!” series, “Tokyo Ghoul” series, “Psycho-Pass” series, “GHOST IN THE SHELL: ARISE” series, and “EVANGELION:3.0 YOU CAN (NOT) REDO.”
CHUKYO TV is excited to announce that it will hold a voice cast audition during ANIME EXPO (AX) 2019 for an English-speaking role in one episode. This is the first time in AX history that a winner can join the cast of a Japanese anime.
Entry details and additional information will be announced in late April.
In addition, virtual YouTube influencer, MIYA KIMINO, will promote the voice cast audition on her channel. MIYA is a bilingual character delivering information about Japanese culture centered on anime to the world. Her channel gathers more than 170,000 enthusiastic fans from all over the world. MIYA is also “the Aichi Tourism Virtual Supporter,” and “SHIKIZAKURA” will occur in Aichi-prefecture. This is why MIYA is a perfect fit to promote this audition.
