Kana Hanazawa plays student council secretary in series premiering on July 10

The official website for the television anime of Akira Hiramoto's Prison School manga began streaming a "underground student council Hana (secretary)" TV ad on Sunday. The ad features the opening theme song "Ai no Prison" (Prison of Love) by Kangoku Danshi.

The website previously streamed ads for Meiko (underground student council president) and Mari (underground student council vice president) earlier this week.

North American publisher Yen Press licensed Akira Hiramoto's original manga for North America, and it describes the series:

Hachimitsu Private Academy was a revered and elite all-girls' boarding school on the outskirts of Tokyo...once upon a time. But with the new school year comes a revision to school policy: Boys are to be admitted into the student body for the first time ever. But on his first day at Hachimitsu, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he's one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Their numbers overwhelmed by the thousand girls in the student body, is it heaven or hell that awaits these five (un)fortunates?!

Funimation will stream the series.

The anime's main cast is as follows:


Hiroshi Kamiya as Kyoshi


Katsuyuki Konishi as Gakuto


Kenichi Suzumura as Shingo


Daisuke Namikawa as Joe


Kazuyuki Okitsu as Reiji "Andre" Andō


Sayaka Ohara as Mari (President)


Shizuka Itou as Meiko (Vice President)


Kana Hanazawa as Hana (Secretary)

Tsutomu Mizushima (Girls und Panzer, Shirobako) is helming the project at J.C. Staff, working off of scripts supervised by Michiko Yokote (Valkyria Chronicles, Shirobako). Junichiro Taniguchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica films, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun) designed the characters, and is also serving as chief animation director.

NARASAKI composed the show's opening theme song "Ai no Prison" with lyrics by Kenji Ohtsuki, while Ryuji Takagi composed the ending theme song "Tsumibukaki Oretachi no Sanka" with lyrics by Kiyomi Kumano. The five main male cast members are singing both songs under the group name "Kangoku Danshi" (Prison Boys).
