The official website for the television anime of Mimana Orimoto's BAKUON!! manga announced on Thursday that Ibuki Kido (Tokyo ESP's Rinka, Pan de Peace!'s Minami Tani) will join the cast as Chisame Nakano, another character from the manga.

Nakano will be a new member of the motorcycle club who rides a Honda NSF100. She is very talented because she's been active on the circuit from a young age, but has a complex about how short she is.

The Bakuon! anime premiered on April 4 and Crunchyroll and The Anime Network are streaming the series.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the series, and describes it:

Moe and motorcycles have never looked better together in this sports comedy about a group of students in the motorcycle club of their all-girls school. When Hane Sakura sees the wild-hearted Onsa Amano riding a motorcycle to school, Sakura is inspired to join the motorcycle club and get her license. However, nothing could have prepared her for the challenges, or the joys, that come with hitting the road on the wings of a real bike!

Junji Nishimura (Simoun, Dog Days', GLASSLIP) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment, and Kurasumi Sunayama (Gunslinger Girl, Monster, Romeo × Juliet) is in charge of the series scripts. Isao Sugimoto (Sketchbook ~full color'S~, Girls und Panzer, Moonlight Mile) is designing the characters, while Manabu Nii (Samurai Flamenco, Karneval) is credited for sub-character design. Yoshio Mizumura (Lupin III: Seven Days Rhapsody, Yowamushi Pedal) and Yasuhiro Moriki (Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, Banner of the Stars, Silent Möbius: The Motion Picture) are credited for design works. Shunichiro Yoshihara (Yowamushi Pedal, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Garakowa -Restore the World-) is in charge of art direction. Takeshi Takadera (Initial D: Second Stage, Yowamushi Pedal) is handling sound direction, while Ryosuke Nakanishi (High School DxD, Sakura Trick, Love Stage!!) is composing the music.
