Glasslip Anime's TV Ad Prepares for July 3 Premiere

posted on by Kyle Cardine
P.A. Works' latest series centers around glass-making girl & friends

Pony Canyon released a new commercial for the GLASSLIP television anime on Thursday. The video features the song "Natsu no Hi to Kimi no Koe" (A Summer Day and Your Voice) by ChouCho, which will serve as the anime's opening theme.

Tōko: It was the summer vacation of the third year of high school that would never come again. A romantic and fantastic story that guides us to the future through our rendezvous.
GLASSLIP: Finally starting its broadcast!

The voice cast includes:

Newcomer 18-year-old Seria Fukagawa as Tōko Fukami, the daughter of a glass workshop

Saori Hayami (Sword Art Online, MM!) as Yanagi Takayama, a girl currently taking lessons to become a model

Risa Taneda (Strike the Blood, Yuyushiki) as Sachi Nagamiya, a quiet bookworm

Ryota Ohsaka (The Devil Is a Part-Timer!, Ace of Diamond) as Kakeru Okikura, a transfer student who came for summer vacation

Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!, Donyatsu) as Yukinari Imi, a track team member currently in rehabilitation

Daiki Yamashita (Yowamushi Pedal, Gaist Crusher) as Hiro Shirosaki, a helper at the cafe "Kazemichi":

Nao Tōyama (The World God Only Knows, Nisekoi) as Hina Fukami, Tōko's younger sister who is on the swim team. She often supports her sister, who is quite bumbling.

Ai Kayano (Guilty Crown, No Game, No Life) as Momo Shirosaki, Hiro's elder sister who is a college student. Her boyfriend is currently hospitalized.

The anime will premiere on Japanese television on July 3.

The story follows six high school students who meet during the summer. The protagonist is Tōko Fukami, a 17-year-old born in Fukui Prefecture. Her dream is to become a glass artisan.

I won't forget the summer we met. The place was a little town tucked in between the ocean and the mountains. There, they met a transfer student. The sun is so dazzling, and the fireworks are so fleeting. A story that starts in summer that six high school students experience. Junji Nishimura (True Tears, Dog Days) is directing the series with Takefumi Anzai (Hanasaku Iroha - Blossoms for Tomorrow episode director) as assistant director. Rika Satou (Tari Tari) and Nishimura are in charge of the series scripts. Miki Takeshita (Red Data Girl, Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily animator) is designing the characters, and serving as chief animation director. Akito Matsuda (D-Fragments, Dog & Scissors) are composing the music with the label Lantis.

Toshie Honda is the art director, while Kōsuke Haruta is the 3D director. Naomi Nakano is the color key artist, and Ayumu Takahashi is editing. Kouji Tsujitani is directing the sound, and Infinite is producing.
