Just the first 3 arcs? I was interested/hoping in seeing an adaptation that would've tried encompassing the whole series, even if it meant deleting/rearranging content, but I guess not. I'll still check it out if Crunchyroll gets this.

I'm not exactly up to date on my Japanese actresses, so can anyone tell me what characters those are supposed to be in the picture, from left to right? Since they don't have the different colored hair, i'm not 100% sure who is who.

Okay, now that we have confirmation on what they're adapting, can we stop calling Tomitake the "male lead"? He's not. In the overall scheme of things, he's not even all that important. Keiichi is the male lead, Keiichi is the main character, and Keiichi is the only guy featured on the key image (Tomitake isn't on the image at all, Oishi is the other one shown).

until season 2 when the story shifted focus to Rika but you're right

The focus goes to Rika, yes, but considering that Keiichi spoiler[is the one who manages to at least retain feelings, if not outright memories of the previous worlds, and is the one who is the instigator in Rika finding a way to break through in the barrier of June 1984], I'd argue that he's the main character of the series as a whole.

You can tell because of the clothes but it is hard. And the girls playing Rika and Satoko look at least 10 years to old.

So, on the bottom: Rika, Satoko, Rena, Keiichi, Mion, and Shion

The top is a bit more questionable: Hanyuu (really not sure???), Miyo (I think?), and Ooishi.
