Toei Animation has recently announced that a new GeGeGe no Kitaro anime will take over the Sunday 9:00AM timeslot, currently held by Dragon Ball Super, starting April 1, 2018. 

This announcement comes as the teaser trailer for Shigeru Mizuki’s long-running series was aired (video above).

The new Kitaro anime will feature a completely new cast:

  • Miyuki Sawashiro as Kitaro
  • Masako Nozawa as Medama Oyajii
  • Yukiyo Fujii as Mana Inuyama
  • Toshio Furukawa as Nezumi Otoko
  • Umeka Shouji as Neko Musume
  • Kappei Yamaguchi as Ittan Momen
  • Bin Shimada as Konaka Jijii and Nurikabe
  • Mayumi Tanaka as Sunakake Baba

Toei has not clarified if Dragon Ball Super will end the week prior, or transfer to a new timeslot. However, internet speculations lean strongly toward the former, signaling a hiatus of the series after the Universe Survival Arc.
