Kadokawa announced on Tuesday that Rie Kugimiya is joining the cast of the television anime of Sawayoshi Azuma‘s Stupid Angel Dances with the Devil (Oroka na Tenshi wa Akuma to Odoru) manga. Kugimiya plays Liz, the protagonist Akutsu’s demon world boss who is hardworking but often makes terrible plans.
The romantic comedy is about Masatora Akutsu, who has come to the human world to search for an idol for demons. Akutsu meets Lily Amane and invites her to join him. However, he learns that Amane’s true identity is an angel, and he attempts to make her fall from grace.
The anime stars (character name romanizations are not official)::
Shūichirō Umeda as Yūya Tanigawa, the first friend Masatora makes after transferring schools. He comes off as unassuming but he is actually a schemer who sometimes lets slip his dark side.
Shunichi Toki as Kensaku Hirota, who has good looks and personality but has no luck in love at all. Whenever he sees a girl he thinks is cute he immediately confesses.
Nao Tōyama as Yūka Tanabashi, a self-proclaimed childhood friend of Kensaku. She thinks of Lily as her rival in love, and she gets very fired up over that rivalry.
Itsuro Kawasaki (Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT, The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting) is in charge of series scripts and is directing the anime at Children’s Playground Entertainment (in collaboration with GAINA). Yūko Yahiro (Diabolik Lovers, Kaguya-sama: Love is War) is designing the characters, Takurō Iga (Oshi no Ko, Fuuka) is composing the music, and ANLA is in charge of music production.
The anime will premiere in 2024.
Azuma launched the manga in Kadokawa‘s Dengeki Maoh magazine in June 2016. Kadokawa published the manga’s 15th compiled book volume on April 27.
