Eri Kitamura, Ayana Taketatsu, Yui Ogura also join July TV series' cast

The official website for the television anime of Meguru Ueno's Hajimete no Gal (First-Time Gal) manga announced the five main cast members and revealed character designs for Ranko, Yui, and Shizune on Friday. The announced roles are:

Shintarō Asanuma as Junichi Hashiba

Yuki Nagaku as Yukana Yame

Eri Kitamura as Ranko Honjō

Ayana Taketatsu as Yui Kashii

Yui Ogura as Shizune Fujinoki

Hiroyuki Furukawa (My Wife is the Student Council President, Sin Strange Plus) is directing the anime and designing the characters at NAZ (Hamatora). Yūichirō Momose ("Sakura Internet Shinsei" net series) is handing series composition.

The anime will premiere in July. The series will have a stage event at AnimeJapan 2017 on March 25, and Nagaku will attend the event.

The romantic comedy begins with Junichi "Jun" Hashiba, an uncool high school student who frets about wanting to lose his virginity. Egged on by his friends, Jun gets on his knees and confesses his love to a classmate named Yukana Yame. The confession surprisingly works and the couple goes out. However, Jun finds himself in uncharted waters with Yame, a trendy and fashion-conscious "gal" (gyaru).

Ueno launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine in November 2015. Kadokawa published the second compiled book volume in October, and the third volume will ship on March 25.
