A KimiKiss television animation and drama CD sale celebration event is scheduled to be held in Tokyo on Sunday, July 29, 2007. Further details will be announced on the official website.

It appears that the KimiKiss anime retains the same cast, at least in part, from the KimiKiss game.

One year ago in my Otome Kiss thread in the My HiME / My Otome forum, I posted the KimiKiss game cast.

Japanese fans have mentioned that several voice actors from My-Otome / Mai-Otome have gone out to the gal game, Kimi Kiss, released in Japan on May 25, 2006.

Hoshino Yuumi CV: Koshimizu Ami = Nina Wang

Satonaka Narumi CV: Mizuhashi Kaori

Mizusawa Mao CV: Ikezawa Haruna

Sakino Asuka CV: Hirohashi Ryou

Futami Eriko CV: Tanaka Rie = Tomoe Marguerite, Fiar Grosse

Shijyo Mituki (Shijou Mitsuki) CV: Noto Mamiko = Yukino Chrysant

Nana CV: Nogawa Sakura = Shiho Huit

Kawada Tomoko CV: Kawasumi Ayako

Hiiragi Akira CV: Fukuyama Jun

According to Japanese fans at 2ch, Nakahara Mai, who plays Tokiha Mai, plays Kuryuu Megumi in Kimi Kiss.

Some Japanese fans have remarked that Futami Eriko resembles her voice actor, Tanaka Rie.

But it also looks like that the other main characters in Kimi Kiss may be, to one extent or another, modeled after their voice actors (e.g., hairstyle).
Note: KimiKiss game character links no longer work. Nakahara Mai indeed voices Kuryuu Megumi in the game. Tanaka Rie has since grown out the bangs in her hair for a more grown-up look, fitting given her many recent mature woman roles in anime: Matsukata Hiroko in Hataraki-Man, Lula in RED GARDEN, Fila Marik in The Third ~Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo~ (The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye), Bianchi/Bianki in Katekyo Hitman REBORN!, Ikeuchi Riyoko in MOONLIGHT MILE, etc.

Hoshino Yuumi speaks with a high, bright voice, sounding little like Nina Wang, Paraietta in Simoun and Kallen Stadfeld in Code Geass, and sounding more like Nadja Applefield in Ashita no Nadja (and Tsukamoto Tenma in School Rumble, for that matter) and other youthful sounding Koshimizu Ami characters.

When hearing Nana talk, rather than Shiho Huit, imagine Hinaichigo in Rozen Maiden saying "oniichan" all the time. (Nana is the younger sister of the male protaganist in KimiKiss ({voiceless Aihara Kouichi in the game}). Nana sounds like a Nogawa Sakura character.

As the polar opposite of the psycho evil bitch Tomoe Marguerite - and Suigintou in Rozen Maiden and Isabella in Soukou no Strain and Morganna in .hack//SIGN and the deep voiced, sexy lady assassin "Poison Scorpion" Bianchi in Kateko Hitman REBORN! - who spews venom in a loud, abusive voice, the seemingly always cool Futami Eriko speaks with a soft, whispery, gosammer voice... yet a Tanaka Rie character very different from Lacus Clyne in Gundam SEED, Kujou Hikari/Shiny Luminous in Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart, and Chii (Chi) in Chobits.

Shijou Mitsuki sounds like what Noto Mamiko characters (including Yukino Chrysant) usually do: like Noto Mamiko.
