As the voice of Rudeus in Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation and Gintoki in Gintama, voice actor Tomokazu Sugita has experienced his fair share of strange otherworldly events. However, he’s never quite had one like being reincarnated into an ASMR mic, which has now been previewed in the first trailer for upcoming original anime series Aru Asa Dummy Head ni Natteita Ore-kun no Jinsei (“My Life After Waking Up as a Dummy Head Microphone”).
It was also revealed that KOTOKO (Accel World) is performing “Katachi ni Dekinai Monologue” for the ending theme.
Over the course of the show, Sugita’s character will be reincarnated into a different object each episode, starting with the dummy head microphone in Episode 1 before becoming a bicycle seat, a piece of crispy fried chicken, a memory foam pillow, a pacifier, a ruler, a multidimensional space-time anomaly, amber sweets and a small Pomeranian.
The supporting cast he’s caught in the middle of are as follows:
- Saori Onishi (Shikimori in Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie) as Yuri Asakusa
- Akari Kito (Tsukasa in TONIKAWA: Over The Moon For You) as Panda Kurama
- Mayu Sagara (Kasumi in Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) as Ume Toranomon
- Lynn (Hibana in Fire Force) as Tsurugi Kanegafuchi
- Miyu Kubota (Karin in Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) as Toto Asakusa
- Kaori Mizuhashi (Mami in Puella Magi Madoka Magica) as Kaori Asakusa
180-byou de Kimi no Mimi wo Shiawase ni Dekiru ka? (“Can I Make Your Ears Happy in 180 Seconds?”) director Yoshinobu Kasai is helming the original series at studios INDIVISION and EKACHI EPILKA, with cura’s (Private Tutor to the Duke’s Daughter light novel illustrator) original designs adapted for animation by Midori Otsuka (Slow Loop animation director). The story will reportedly follow an ASMR club of high school girls aiming for the “ASMR Koshien” and a reincarnated microphone stuck in the middle.
Aru Asa Dummy Head ni Natteita Ore-kun no Jinsei is set to begin airing on Tokyo MX in Japan sometime in October.
