The official website for the television anime of Mimana Orimoto's Bakuon!! manga revealed on Tuesday that Sumire Uesaka will play the character Hikari Hayakawa (seen below) in the second original anime DVD (OAD) bundled with the manga's ninth compiled book volume.

The ninth volume is slated for December 20. It will center on Hijiri Minowa (Rikako Yamaguchi), and will adapt the manga's 40th chapter "Maid!!" which was not portrayed in the television anime. The site previously unveiled a visual of Hijiri Minowa with her Ducati 399 Panigale.

The 12-episode television anime adaptation premiered on April 4. Crunchyroll and The Anime Network streamed 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!

Orimoto (Mahou Shoujo Neko X, Maid in Japan) launched the manga series in Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine in February 2011. Akita Shoten published the manga's eighth compiled book volume on July 20. The seventh volume bundled the first OAD, which debuted on March 18 ahead of the television anime's April premiere.
