posted on by Kim Morrissy
Sanrio launched its first comedian project "Warahibi!" in August. The group consists of six comedy duos, all of whom are anime boys. A promotional video released on Warahibi's YouTube channel on Thursday shows the duos in action.
Warahibi has also released videos introducing each individual pair.
The "Asayake Rangers" (Morning Glow Rangers) duo consists of two childhood friends from Shizuoka. Haruka Fukushi (left) is performed by Daichi Kusano, while Jun Komine (right) is performed by Shōgo Sakata.
The "Glassic Classic" duo consists of two bespectacled men who have recently quit their salaryman jobs. Shūji Kanzaki (left) and Tasuku Asamiya (right) are performed by the comedy duo Ushiro City.
Animate Girls Festival 2019 launched a poll to vote for the funniest duo. The poll will run until September 23, and the results will be announced on September 30. The winning duo will present a "reward" to attendees of the Animate Girls Festival on November 9 and 10.
