Sakamoto Days cast and crew

Although Sakamoto looks much different than he did when he was younger that didn't stop fans from thirsting for this handsome lead. And not just thirsting after his design, but also swooning over his talented voice actor you've certainly heard of many times before.

Sakamoto will be voiced by none other than Tomokazu Sugita, the same famous voice actor who voices the role of Gintoki in Gintama, Tadaomi Karasuma from Assassination Classroom, and Gyomei from Demon Slayer.

Aside from Sugita, we sadly don't have confirmation on the rest of the voice actors featured in this title. However, once we do, we're sure the lineup is going to impress you.

Last but not least is the talented crew bringing this show to our screens!

Masaki Watanabe, the same creative who has worked on shows like Fruits Basket season 2, Dinosaur King, and KADO - The Right Answer. Watanabe will be joined by Taku Kishimoto and Yo Moriyama, who are in charge of writing and character design, respectively.

This trio alone lets us know that the show is in good hands and will certainly exceed everyone's expectations!

With the exception of a few things such as a specific release date, episode count, and a few more important tidbits about this series, fans are all set to start freaking out about the arrival of this series since it is sure to set the tone for all anime releasing in 2025.
