It’s not often that josei manga get adapted into an anime, at least compared to shojo titles. Thus, fans of the genre will be happy to know that the josei series Nina the Starry Bride is getting an anime adaptation.
Nina the Starry Bride’s adaptation was revealed via the show’s newly launched official website and X (formerly Twitter) account. An announcement video was also shared, though it’s not a proper trailer.
What the new video did show were the anime’s three main voice cast members, as well as official character art.
Nina the Starry Bride Reveals Main Cast Members
The anime’s lead role of Nina will be voiced by Minami Tanaka, a voice actress who has made waves recently following her surprise marriage announcement.
Even before that, Tanaka is a popular VA, especially among Fate/Grand Order players. That’s because she is a fixture in the Chaldea Radio Station program for the game alongside Rie Takahashi (Ai Hoshino in Oshi no Ko).
As for her anime roles, Tanaka is known as the voice of Lily Hoshikawa in Zombie Land Saga, Mary Saotome in Kakegurui, Eris in Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy, and Minami Katayama in Wake Up, Girls!
The next VA in the show’s cast is Yuichiro Umehara who will voice Prince Azure. Umehara is the VA of characters like Goblin Slayer in the titular series, Weather Report in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Seiya Ryuuguuin in Cautious Hero.
Rounding out the main cast is Koki Uchiyama as Seto. He is the voice of Izumi Miyamura in Horimiya, Kei Tsukishima in Haikyuu!!, and Toge Inumaki in Jujutsu Kaisen.
What to Expect From the Nina the Starry Bride Anime Adaptation
Nina the Starry Bride is an ongoing josei manga by Rikachi that’s serialized in Kodansha’s Be Love magazine. This is the same publication as the popular Chihayafuru manga.
The series has been ongoing since 2019, and it has gotten a lot of praise for its story. It even took home a Kodansha Manga Award in 2022.
Its story follows Nina, a girl who was sold into slavery by her brother. Her luck soon turns as her captor, Azure, turns her into a princess.
For now, there’s no word yet on a release date for the Nina the Starry Bride anime. There’s also no info yet on a release window, so we might not even get this in 2024.
In the meantime, fans who are interested can read the manga, which is being published by Kodansha USA.
