A trailer for the second cour of Urusei Yatsura also revealed three new characters’ voice actors. They will voice Ten, Ryunosuke Fujinami, and Ryunosuke’s Dad, respectively. The official website for Urusei Yatsura also has some comments from the three additions to the cast.
First off, you can watch a trailer for the new cour here:
The trailer has the same fast-paced humor that is present in the show, as well as other Rumiko Takahashi works. MAISONdes will still sing the opening. You can hear it in the trailer, and the name of the song is “Aiwananmchu feat. asmi and Surii.” MAISONdes will also sing the ending theme, though we do not yet know the name for that.
As for the new voice actors for Urusei Yatsura characters, they are:
- Ten: Aoi Yuki (Futaba in Persona 5, Lucy in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners)
- Ryunosuke Fujinami: Ayahi Takagaki (Feldt in Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Mariah in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders)
- Ryunosuke’s Dad: Shigeru Chiba (Kuwabara in Yu Yu Hakusho, Kira’s Dad in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable)
On the website, Yuki commented that she was a big fan of Inuyasha, and her mom was a huge fan of Urusei Yatsura. Because of her mom and the overall reputation of the series, she thought of it as a legendary work even before she appeared on the show. Takagaki is herself a huge fan of the Takahashi’s works, starting from Ranma ½. Chiba, on the other hand, does not seem to be an existing fan. But he says that he feels fortunate to be a part of the Rumic World because of all the unique and lively characters.
Urusei Yatsura is readily available for streaming on HIDIVE, and the second cour will start airing on January 5, 2023.
