All-new TV series this fall with Noriko Hidaka (Touch, Inuyasha, Ranma, Gunbuster)

The official website for the Shimanchu MiRiKa anime project announced that a second all-new weekly anime series will air this fall. The studio Soratia has been producing Shimanchu MiRiKa as the first local anime from the southern Japanese prefecture of Okinawa.

The anime revolves around three girls — Mai, Ruri, and Kei — who are into music and dance, Ryubu or Okinawan stage productions, and karate. Long-time voice actress Noriko Hidaka (Touch's Minami, Inuyasha's Kikyo, Ranma 1/2's Akane, Aim for the Top! Gunbuster's Noriko) plays the title role of MiRiKa — a name coined from Musical, Ryubu, and Karate.

Kyūma Ōshita (character designer of Rocket Girls, Hi no Tori, Top Secret ~The Revelation~) and Yasushi Hirano (series script supervisor of 6 Angels, Brave Exkaiser, Dinosaur King, Metal Fighter Miku) are producing and directing the project. Hiroshi Katō art director of Ah! My Goddess, Blood: The Last Vampire) and Yota Tsuruoka (sound director of Afro Samurai, Appleseed, Inuyasha) are also involved.
