posted on by Karen Ressler
Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the anime Wakaba Girl as it airs in Japan this summer. The stream times have not yet been announced.
The stream will be available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.
Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the series.
The Wakaba Girl TV anime adapts Yui Hara's manga of the same name. Seiji Watanabe (Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid, Munto 2: Beyond the Walls of Time key animation) is helming the anime at Nexus. In addition, Kana Ishida (Aquarion Evol, The Irregular at Magic High School) is designing the characters, and Jukki Hanada (Love Live! School idol project, Petite Princess Yucie) is writing the scripts.
The story centers around the activities of Wakaba Kohashi (voiced by Ari Ozawa), "a slightly out-of-tune super" daughter of a well-to-do family, and her friends. Wakaba (literally, "young leaves") looks like an elegant rich daughter, but she admires the trendy "gyaru" fashion subculture. There is also the pure, innocent, fairy-tale-like Moeko (Mikako Izawa). Mao (M.A.O) is capricious and behaves in her own way. Nao (Rie Murakawa) used to be an athletic type of girl, but now loves the boys-love genre.
