Ueda plays story's protagonist Hane Sakura

The January 2016 issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine is announcing on Tuesday that the television anime of Mimana Orimoto's Bakuon!! manga will premiere in April on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, BS11, and other channels. In addition, the anime has cast Reina Ueda for the role of the protagonist Hane Sakura.

The story revolves around high school girls who discover the appeal of motorcycles. Hane Sakura is a high school student who looks a little bit like an airhead. On the way to her all-female high school one day, she is worn-out climbing a hilly road with a bicycle, but she sees a girl named Onsa Amano who is riding a motorcycle. Sakura immediately becomes interested in motorcycles, and she and Onsa join the motorcycle club at the school. Then, Sakura sets out to get her license.

Aside from the television anime, an original anime DVD (OAD) bundled with the manga's seventh compiled book volume is slated for release on March 18, ahead of the TV anime's premiere. The limited-edition set will retail for 3,880 yen (about US$32), and the deadline to pre-order is January 21.

Orimoto (Mahou Shoujo Neko X, Maid in Japan) launched the series in Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine in February 2011. Akita Shoten published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on May 20.
