An anime adaptation of Yuka Matsuda's color four-panel manga, Dibetagurashi: Ahiru no Seikatsu (Dibetagurashi: A Duck's Life), will premiere on April 7. The story follows the daily life of a group of birds, including a duck, an old nihilistic great grey owl, and a gluttonous Caique parrot.

The official site, which opened Wednesday, reveals the cast list:

Ahiru (duck): Taiki Matsuno
Karafuto-ojisan (Grey Owl): Juurouta Kosugi
Komadori (Japanese Robin): Kokoro Kikuchi
Daisagi (Great White Egret): Kuniko Ishijima
Kosagi (Little Egret): Asami Yoshida
Sasagoi (Striated Heron): Hiroshi Shimozaki
Hagekō-ojisan (Marabou Stork): Hidenobu Kiuchi
Narrator: Naoki Tanaka (of the Cocorico comedy duo)

Taiki Mino (Bikkuri-Man flash animation production) is serving as the series director and character designer. Makoto Miyazaki (Dragon Crisis!) will handle the music, and Kengo Fukui will produce the music at the VERYGOO studio. Kisuke Koizumi is serving as sound director, and Yayoi Tateishi is collaborating with sound production at Jinnan Studio.

The anime will run within the Otōsan to Issho program on the NHK BS Premium channel. Libre Publishing has released two compiled books (Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter) for the manga, the latest of which shipped in Japan last November.
