Yurika Kubo as Nekoyamada Neko (Neko-chan)

Character description: Adorably clumsy vice president Neko is the vice president of the student council at
Tokyo Metropolitan Hino Minami High School. She plots to disband the Deer Club and tries to uncover Koshitan’s weaknesses but always ends up failing hilariously.
Yurika Kubo’s comment: I’m Yurika Kubo, and I’ll be playing the role of Nekoyamada Neko. When I first heard the title “My Deer Friend Nokotan,” I felt an inexplicable connection to it, so I am truly delighted and honored to be a part of this project. Neko-chan may be small, but she’s a hard worker with a bit of a sharp tongue, yet she’s absolutely lovable! She has a charm that makes you want to cheer for her, so I’ll do my best to make everyone fall in love with her!

Rio Tsuchiya as Tanukikouji Kinu (Tanuki)

Character description: Ultra-Negative Secretary Kinu is the secretary of the student council at Tokyo Metropolitan Hino Minami High School. Her kind and serious nature makes her prone to negative thinking. Her specialty dish is egg on rice (with eggshells included).
Rio Tsuchiya’s comment: I’m Rio Tsuchiya, and I’ll be voicing Tanuki. When I first read the original work, I was pleasantly shocked, thinking, “What is this…?” in the best possible way. During the recording sessions, I often find myself nearly laughing at everyone’s lines. Tanuki is a girl with a negative mindset who easily gets flustered, but I’ll give my all to ensure she stands out amidst the chaos! It’s a work that will make you laugh even when you’re tired, so I hope you enjoy it!

Chinatsu Akasaki as Tsubameya Chiharu (Tsubame)

Character description: Passionate Nokotan Fan Chiharu is the treasurer of the student council at Tokyo Metropolitan Hino Minami High School. Though she appears quiet and cool, she’s a dedicated Nokotan fan. She has an older brother who works at a café.
Chinatsu Akasaki’s comment: The deer are in motion! This anime is for those who want to fully feel the essence of deer. It’s not about thinking with your head, but feeling it with your heart… and antlers! My character, Tsubame, may seem poker-faced, but she has a heart full of deer spirit. Why not unleash your inner deer spirit too?
