TrySail, ClariS Perform Classroom Crisis Anime's Themes
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the original television anime Classroom Crisis revealed on Saturday that TrySail (pictured at right) will perform the opening theme song "Cobalt," and ClariS (illustration below left) will perform the ending theme song "Anemone."
TrySail is a unit comprised of voice actresses Momo Asakura, Shiina Natsukawa, and Sora Amamiya. The group previously performed the opening theme song for the Denpa Kyōshi - He Is an Ultimate Teacher television anime series. The unit's second single with "Cobalt" will ship on August 19.
The duo ClariS debuted in 2010 as middle-schoolers with their single "irony," which served as the opening theme to the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai TV anime. From there, they performed the theme songs for the Puella Magi Madoka Magica TV anime and films, as well as the themes for Moyashimon Returns, Nisemonogatari, Oreimo 2, and Nisekoi anime.
Alice, a former member of ClariS, left the group to focus on her studies last year. However, the other member Clara then promised that ClariS was not disbanding, and the group relaunched with a new member Karen last November. The new incarnation of the group performed the Tsukimonogatari ending theme song.
The cast includes:
Showtaro Morikubo as Kaito Sera, a young hot-blooded teacher and room monitor who works for A-TEC. A natural born engineer, he dreams of creating a new engine with his students. It seems like he'd be popular with the students because of his closeness in age, but once he gets going on an impassioned speech he can be annoying.
Ari Ozawa as Mizuki Sera, a third year student and engineer who works for A-TEC. She lives with her big brother Kaito and does all the housework. She decided to become an engineer to follow in the footsteps of her late parents. She's a member of her class committee and dresses maturely.
Sora Amamiya as Iris Shirasaki, a third year student and poster girl test pilot for A-TEC. Not just a figurehead, she can boast incredible flying skills. However, she's not very safety-conscious, and even drives her bike recklessly during her commute, setting a new "course record" every day. Her friend Mizuki is always telling her to be careful.
The "school x work romantic comedy" is an adolescent vignette about the troubles and tribulations of high schoolers on salary.
Kenji Nagasaki (Gundam Build Fighters, No. 6) is directing the series at studio Lay-duce (Magi: Adventure of Sinbad, Go! Go! 575), Hiro Kanzaki (Oreimo, EUREKA SEVEN AO, Go! Go! 575) is designing the characters, and Fumiaki Maruto (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, White Album 2) is in charge of scripts.

MONTWO wrote the original story.
This anime will air on the Animeism programming block beginning on July 3.
The series will get a manga adaptation, novel adaptation, and spinoff novel. The prologue of the manga adaptation, by artist Masaharu Takano, will premiere in the August issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive on June 27.
