Added release date.

Here's ANN article on the cast of characters.

The official website for the anime adaptation of Izumi Tsubaki's Gekkan Shōjo Nozaki-kun revealed three more cast members on Thursday. From left to right in the image above, they are: Kenta Miyake (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders's Mohammed Abdul) as Ken Miyamae, Daisuke Ono (Magi's Sinbad) as Mitsuya Maeno, and Ayako Kawasumi (Fate/Zero's Saber) as Yukari Miyako.

The website also announced that the show will premiere on TV Tokyo on July 6.

Previously announced cast members include:

Yūichi Nakamura as Umetarō Nozaki, a high school student who writes the popular shojo manga "Koi Shio ♥" under a woman's pen name. He has a lot of fans as a manga artist who is sensitive to women's feelings, but in real life he's thick-headed and lacks delicacy.

Ari Ozawa as Chiyo Sakura, a high school girl with unrequited love for Nozaki. Her confession to Nozaki is misunderstood, and she ends up working as his manga assistant. She's a member of the art club and Nozaki values her skills.

Nobuhiko Okamoto as Mikoto Mikoshiba, one of Nozaki's assistants. He's popular with girls because of his appearance and way of speech. He's the model for a certain character in Nozaki's manga, but he hasn't realized it.

Yuuki Ono as Masayuki Hori, one of Nozaki's assistants. He's president of the drama club, and is merciless in his leadership over his junior in the club, Kashima.

Mai Nakahara as Yū Kashima, a second year girl in the drama club. Because of her handsome appearance and gentlemanly manner, she's popular with the girls.

Miyuki Sawashiro as Yuzuki Seo, Chiyo's classmate who's in the singing club. She doesn't read the atmosphere around other people and is often irritated by them.

Ryohei Kimura as Hirotaka Wakamatsu, a first year in the basketball club. He looked up to Nozaki when Nozaki was on his middle-school basketball team. He has a delicate personality.

Mamoru Miyano as Suzuki

Marie Miyake as Mamiko

Mitsue Yamazaki (Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East) will direct the series and Yoshiko Nakamura (Hiiro no Kakera - The Tamayori Princess Saga) is will handle the scripts. Junichiro Taniguchi (Genshiken Second Season) will design the characters. The series will be animated at studio Dogakobo.

I really hope this adaptation does the manga justice. Seriously one of the funniest manga I've ever read, so I hope it can translate well to anime form. Every scene involving Seo is the goddamn best.

Loved this episode. Got a feeling they covering two manga chapters since they split the episode into two parts to cover two new characters.

Kawaii.

In some scenes, if you take out Nozaki's hair, he actually looks like Saitama from OPM.

Good episode to watch after I watched Akame ga Kill. Nothing beats watching happy and comedic stuff after a brutal, gorey show.

Two more weird characters. Maybe just one weird character. I bet the editor is a girl if we get to meet her. It was nice to see Nozaki's team come from different background and tastes, just not purely manga.

Would love a GIF of Sakura flying after Mikoshiba kicks her and Nozaki out of the shop with the figurines! That was so cute :)

I tried.

Along the way, I found a cute GIF of Chiyo Sakura.

@takashichea: Thanks so much for looking it up for me, Taka! I didn't really think anyone would come up with the idea of turning that scene into a GIF, but it seems other folks liked that little jump as well.

Here it is (thanks to Tumblr):
