The official website of the Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru anime has revealed that a special event will be held on October 23rd to commemorate the 10th anniversary of visual novel developer Minato Soft, the co-creators of the series. The event itself is set to announce a few new project announcements.
The event will be held at the Tokyo Dome City Hall on Sunday, October 23rd opening at 5:00pm JST. The main cast of Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru will be attending the event:
- Haruka Terui (Kobeni Yonomori in Mikakunin de Shinkoukei) the voice of Yuuna Yuuki
- Yumi Uchiyama (Youko Inokuma from Kiniro Mosaic) who voices Fuu Inubouzaki
- Tomoyo Kurosawa (Miria Akagi in The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls) who voiced Itsuki Inubouzaki
- Suzuko Mimori (Umi Sonoda from Love Live! School Idol Project) the voice of Mimori Tougou
- Juri Nagatsuma (Satone Shichimiya in Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren) who voices Karin Miyoshi
During a live stream event in June last year, the cast revealed that the anime will be advancing to the next stage with a new project, titled the Hero Club Five Tenets.
In interview earlier in 2014, series director Seiji Kishi mentioned how support of the anime has been tremendous, with the sales and popularity of the series being surprisingly high – ranking 1st for the season, and that further support of the series can lead to the future development of the series. He mentions that there are currently plans for this, which also include pushing the story into new unexplored directions. This is also somewhat evident with the first release of Sonoko After, straight after the anime’s completion, with fans earlier demanding a further conclusion to the series. Regardless, if there was more continued support of the series the second season of the anime will be made.
