Hirogaru Sky! Precure Anime Casts Ayumu Murase, Ayaka Nanase
An online conference for Hirogaru Sky! Precure (Wide Open Sky! Precure), the 20th Precure (Pretty Cure) television anime series, revealed two new cast members on Thursday.
Ayumu Murase as Cure Wing, the first male Precure, who is about 12-years-old

The main cast members are:
Akira Sekine as Sora Harewataaru/Cure Sky, the Precure of the heavens
Ai Kakuma as Mashiro Nijigaoka/Cure Prism, the Precure of light

The motif of the new anime is "sky," and the theme is "hero." The story set in two places with Precure girls: the heavenly realm Skyland and Sorashido, a city surrounded by nature. One day, Skyland's young Princess El was snatched by a monster of the Underg Empire. Sora Harewataaru, a brave girl who aspires to be a hero, follows the princess into a mysterious hole — and emerges in another world at the city of Sorashido. Sora encounters a second-year junior high school girl named Mashiro Nijigaoka and ends up living with El at Mashiro's home.
