posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Miracle magazine revealed the main cast, a key visual, and the January 5 broadcast premiere date for the anime of Harikamo's Urara Meirocho four-panel manga on Wednesday. The cast includes (from right to left in the key visual below):
- Sayaka Harada as Chiya
- Yurika Kubo as Koume
- Haruka Yoshimura as Nono
- Kaede Hondo as Kon
The anime will premiere on TBS on January 5 at 1:58 a.m. (effectively January 6 morning), and on BS-TBS on January 7 at 1:00 a.m. (effectively January 8 morning).
Youhei Suzuki (SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist, The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Deko Akao (Snow White with the Red Hair, Etotama, Noragami) is handling the series composition, and Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Non Non Biyori) is designing the characters for animation.
The story is set in Meiro-chō, a town where all-female diviners (uranaishi) live and where girls from all over the country yearn to become the top diviner — "Urara." Today, a solitary girl named Chiya enters the town's gates. However, she has another purpose in coming here, besides becoming the Urara. Chiya's days as an apprentice diviner begin as she meets three friends — the earnest Kon; Koume, who is a fan of Western culture; and the shy Nono.
Harikamo is serializing the manga in Manga Time Kirara Miracle, and Houbunsha published the third volume in May.
