Voice actress Saori Hayami joins the cast of the upcoming Urusei Yatsura reboot anime as Oyuki as announced on the anime’s official website. Previously, Katsuyuki Konishi joined as Ram. You can see Saori Hayami’s character preview below:
Oyuki is described as Ram’s childhood friend and is the queen of Neptune. She usually comes across as quiet and elegant, but she also has a frightening side when she’s angry.
“I think she’s cool and beautiful and has a wonderful personality. It is interesting that she is calm, but not afraid at times. I hope I can enjoy the recording while capturing Oyuki’s delicate expressions that she displays in conversation.”
