The "Milky Holmes Sisters Member Scout Audition" finals revealed on Saturday the title, staff, and other details about the new Milky Holmes television anime. The 12-minute episodes of Futari wa Milky Holmes will premiere this July on Tokyo MX TV and other stations.
Hiroshi Nishikiori (Azumanga Daioh, A Certain Magical Index, Angelic Layer) is directing at J.C. Staff and Nomad. Hideki Shirane (Date A Live, Hayate the Combat Butler) is in charge of the scripts, and Mariko Fujita (Galaxy Angel, Kämpfer, Rosario + Vampire) is designing the characters.
In this story set two years after the previous anime works, the new "Milky Holmes Feathers" group are kōhai to the earlier four Milky Holmes girls. The two new characters are Kazumi and Arisu (Alice), two 12-year-old girls. Kazumi with a black motif (pictured above) will be voiced by Aimi Terakawa, while the voice of Arisu with a white motif (pictured below) announced on Saturday as Ayasa Itō.
