posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The pachinko and slot machine parlor Island in Akihabara, Tokyo announced this week that a television anime adaptation of its "Aira Project" commercials has been green-lit.
The anime stars Pile (Love Live!) as Aira, Kana Hanazawa (Psycho-Pass, Durarara!!) as Hana, and Yuka Iguchi (Bakemonogatari, Seraph of the End) as Shima. Sōta Sugahara (gdgd Fairies, Hi-sCool! Seha Girls) is directing the anime.
The anime will premiere on December 18 on Tokyo MX, and will be a "15-second" series — teased as "the first ever!?" by the parlor's website.
Pile has previously performed a song for Island's "Aira Project" commercial in July.
Island is also hosting a manga series featuring the Aira character on its website.
