Iruma-kun, Tsugumomo).
The film reunites the series’ seiyuu including Rie Takahashi (KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World!, Isekai Quartet) as Takagi and Yuki Kaji (Ahiru no Sora, Attack on Titan) as Nishikata. Inori Minase (Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, The Quintessential Quintuplets) and Haruka Tomatsu (Gintama, ORESUKI – Are You the Only One Who Loves Me?) join the rest of the returning cast as Hana and Ota, respectively.
