The Seibu Railway line and Chichibu prefecture are working on a mutually beneficial anime together. Announced in November, the story follows a woman named Kaoruko who is riding the train to Chichibu to reunite with someone she met as a child. Her memories are colored by the beautiful scenery and landmarks the two visited before they parted ways. The story's romantic setting is set against a backdrop of tourist locations in Chichibu and the railway's Seibuto Traveling Restaurant "52 Seats of Happiness."
Seibu Railway announced on Tuesday that it has cast the leads for its couple and the 20 minute anime will premiere in March. The anime is titled Chichibu de Buchichi.
Tomoyo Kurosawa (Miria Akagi in The [email protected] Cinderella Girls, Phosphophyllite in Land of the Lustrous, Kumiko Ōmae in Sound! Euphonium) is starring as Kaoruko and Daisuke Ono (Jūshimatsu in Mr. Osomatsu, Erwin Smith in Attack on Titan, Jōtarō Kūjō in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) is starring as her blind date, Akifumi.
The anime premiered at this year's Chichibu Film Festival on November 19. It will launch on Seibu Railway's website in March with subtitles in English, French, and traditional Chinese.
