Yay, the full cast for the Marimite movie has been announced! ^__^ From left to right in the photos above and below, the actresses are: Hirose Alice (Taneshima Tsutako), Akiyama Nana (Torii Eriko), Hirata Kaoru (Mizuno Youko), Haru (Ogasawara Sachiko), Miki Honoka (Fukuzawa Yumi), Takizawa Karen (Satou Sei-sama), Sakata Rikako (Hasekura Rei), and Miyake Hitomi (Shimazu Yoshino).
- Like Haru, Hirose Alice is a model for Seventeen.
- Akiyama Nana has done previous acting work in dramas, movies, and theater, and well as a few anime roles. She has also released some CDs and modeled in a few magazines.
- Hirata Kaoru has acted in several dramas and movies.
- By now, it's pretty well known among Marimite movie-followers that Miki Honoka is a model for Love Berry. I'm a little surprised that they chose a 13 year-old actress to play Yumi (especially since Haru is 18, and Yumi and Sachiko are only one year apart; it would actually feel a little creepy for me if things got too "intense" between live action-Yumi and live action-Sachiko- which I doubt would happen in the first place because of Miki's age)- but as long as she does a good job, that's all that really matters.
- Takizawa Karen is a Seventeen model.
- Sakata Rikako has modeled for Love Berry and acted in at least one other movie (Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai), a drama (Koishite Akuma), and whatever this is.
- Miyake Hitomi has acted in a drama (Ryomaden) and voiced a character in season 2 of Code Geass.
