posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Anime about diving club premieres on July 8

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Kozue Amano's Amanchu! manga began streaming the show's second promotional video on Thursday. The video previews Maaya Sakamoto's opening theme song "Million Clouds."

Futaba: A place I don't know. A school I don't know. This is where my new life starts.
Text: Come, let us begin a new story.
Hikari: It's a fun-filled high school life again today! Entry!
Text: An unknown world.
Futaba: I'm Ooki Futaba. Oh no! It's always like this with me.
Text: New encounters.
Hikari: This is our diving point for today!
Mato: Settle down!
Text: All the things I had given up...
Mato: What's most important is that you have fun every single day.
Text: In this town, in this sea, with you...
Futaba: Fun? Is there anything fun in this town?
Hikari: Teko!
Hikari: Do you want to take up diving with me, Teko?
Futaba: Excuse me...
Kino: A huge world of fun is opening up right before your eyes.
Mato: Welcome to the diving club!
Makoto and Ai: Pleased to meet you!
Hikari: Those who think every day that "today is going to be fun" are gonna be able to find fun anywhere, anytime!
Mato: Fun is the strongest, fun is righteous, and fun is infinite!
Futaba: It would be a lie to say that I'm not scared anymore. But it's alright. Hikari is with me.
Text: Treasure something new.
Hikari: Let's dive together, Teko!
Futaba: Sure!
Futaba and Hikari: Amanchu! Premieres July!

The video also reveals that the anime will premiere on AT-X on July 8 at 11:00 p.m. The series will also air on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, Shizuoka Broadcasting, and BS11.
