After a long hiatus since boy’s love manga Hybrid Child’s anime was announced, the new cast of the anime is announced! We can expect more updates and news about the anime in the upcoming months. Cover features the first couple in the story: Hazuki and Izumi Kotarou.

Title: Hybrid Child ハイブリッド・チャイルド manga
Author: Nakamura Shungiku (Junjo Romantica, Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi)
Animated by Studio Deen who also did the anime for Junjou Romantica and Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi series. By the way, brand new anime series for Junjou Romantica is announced too! Most likely to be season 3! As well as a Seikai ichi hatsukoi movie planned for 2014.
Official site:

The Hybrid Child is an amazing android that can grow if it is lavished with enough love and care from its owner. Neither fully machine nor fully human, the various Hybrid Child models develop strong emotional bonds with their owners. Each short story contains love, sacrifice, and drama: Young Kotaro learns the importance of responsibility when his Hybrid Child’s lifespan runs out. The tragic swordsman Seya learns to love again with the help of his Hybrid child, Yuzu. The final tale tells the story of Kuroda, the creator of the Hybrid Child designs.

New cast in anime
Okamoto Nobuhiko 岡本信彦 as Izumi Kotarou 和泉小太郎
Hirakawa Daisuke 平川大輔 as Hazuki 葉月
Kimura Ryouhei 木村良平 as Ichi Seya 瀬谷壱
Yonaga Tsubasa 代永翼 as Yuzu ゆず
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu 松岡禎丞 as Tsukishima 月島
Ono Yuuki 小野友樹 as Kuroda 黒田

Hirakawa Daisuke x Okamoto Nobuhiko 平川大輔 x 岡本信彦
Kimura Ryouhei x Yonaga Tsubasa 木村良平 x 代永翼
Ono Yuuki x Matsuoka Yoshitsugu 小野友樹 x 松岡禎丞

The new cast is completely different from the ones in the drama cd that was released in 2005. I think the new cast would sound fine. The stories are shounen-ai, maybe except for story 3, so there are no H-voices to worry about :P

Original cast in drama cd
(葉月) Toriumi Kousuke x Fukuyama Jun 鳥海浩輔 x 福山潤 (和泉小太郎)
(瀬谷) Suwabe Junichi x Miyata Kouki 諏訪部順一 x 宮田幸季 (ゆず)
(黒田) Inoue Kazuhiko x Midorikawa Hikaru 井上和彦 x 緑川光 (月島)

The couple below is: Ichi Seya and Yuzu.

Third couple: Kuroda and Tsukishima

  1. This is seriously my favorite thing by her. I loved it more than Junjou (as odd as that seems) so this is really exciting to me!

    1. @Ruika-sama: I’m with you on this one. I love Hybrid Child more than Junjo too :D The original art style may be unpolished but the stories were really moving.

  2. Lol the seiyuu cast is like Kurobas x Free! XDD But weirdly Okamoto choice since he’s Kisa, but I love his voice, so no complains about that.

    But really, I will only believe in a new Junjou Romantica season when official site confirms, or it has an announce on Ciel mag (like they did with Yokozawa movie).

    1. @planck-chan: It’ll be fun if there’s a cross-over anime of all sensei’s series and Okamoto has to voice multiple chara in same anime lololol. You have a good point about the ova tho. The news was published in the latest Junjo manga.

    2. Oh that’s so good to hear, I mean, I was so disillusioned cos we heard about it many times but we’ve been waiting so long… that OVA last year was fun but a new season is something we all dream about it! I was like, no big hopes until something more concrete, but as it’s on manga now I can be happy!!!

  3. o_o Read the title, did a little research, found the manga link in my favorites. I’m feeling so much guilty that I don’t remmember nothing from the plot. @.@ Gonna read it again. It’s in my “pretty good” folder, so i supposed I liked it a lot. *I know, my memory is the worst =-=*

    1. In fact, there’s nothing impressive here.
      It’s just my memory that is worst than my goldfish’s.

      Reading from the start, there’s gravitation ex, underground prision, okane ga nai, koisuru bokun, kaze to ki no uta, kitsune no tama youbai(almost sure this one was shota X.O yet it was cute) , Otoginokuni no Shucchou Host (only two chapter added on this, so sad) , and so there’s a lot of one – shoots that I can’t remmember the plot. X.X But the most titles are very well know.

      (Some time ago, whem I went to cram school, there’s was a friend that sent me a lot of one shoots X.X That’s why.)

  4. My inner fangirl is screaming, omg I’m so excited!!
    When it comes to BL manga going anime, Nakamura Shungiku is most successful ☆
