An official website opened on Wednesday to announce a television anime series based on the film Konna Watashi-tachi ga Nariyuki de Heroine ni Natta Kekka www 'Narihero www' (How We Became the Heroines [lol] 'Narihero [lol]'). The film will run alongside the gdgd Fairies film when it opens in theaters on September 27.
The TV series, called Narihero www for short, is slated to premiere on Tokyo MX on October 6, and will feature 15-minute episodes. The story follows Black.inc, the three Soyogi sisters who live in space.
gdgd Fairies creator Sōta Sugahara is also creating, directing, and designing the Konna Watashi-tachi ga Nariyuki de Heroine ni Natta Kekka www 'Narihero www' film at Strawberry Meets Pictures and Fan Company. Takuya Masumoto wrote the script.
The anime film stars Mutsumi Tamura as Sokura Soyogi, Yuiko Tatsumi as Purato Soyogi, and Maaya Uchida as Alice Soyogi. (All three characters have given names that begin the same way in Japanese as three ancient Greek philosophers: Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.) Other cast members include Taisuke Nishimura as Kyattso Tōkatsu (Tōkatsu lit. meaning 'generic name'), and Kouji Ochiai as DT.
The fully computer-animated Gekijō-ban gdgd Yōseis tte Iu Eiga wa Dō kana…? (gdgd Fairies the Movie — Wonder What Kind of Movie That'll Be…?) will open in theaters on September 27. The first gdgd Fairies television anime premiered in the fall 2011, and the second one followed in the winter of 2013. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons outside of Japan.
