Bakuon!! High School Motorcycle TV Anime Slated for 2016

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Original anime DVD to ship on March 18 ahead of TV anime's premiere

The December issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine is revealing on Wednesday that the previously announced anime adaptation of Mimana Orimoto's Bakuon!! manga will be a television anime premiering in 2016. In addition, an original anime DVD (OAD) bundled with the manga's seventh compiled book volume is slated for release on March 18, ahead of the TV anime's premiere. The limited-edition set will retail for 3,880 yen (about US$32), and the deadline to pre-order is January 21.

The anime project will also launch a website and Twitter account on Wednesday. The website will gradually reveal character visuals for the television anime.

The story revolves around high school girls who discover the appeal of motorcycles. Sakura Hane is a high school student who looks a little bit like an airhead. On the way to her all-female high school one day, she is worn-out climbing a hilly road with a bicycle, but she sees a girl named Onsa Amano who is riding a motorcycle. Sakura immediately becomes interested in motorcycles, and she and Onsa join the motorcycle club at the school. Then, Sakura sets out to get her license.

Orimoto (Mahou Shoujo Neko X, Maid in Japan) launched the series in Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine in February 2011. Akita Shoten published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on May 20.
