posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Monday that it has licensed the upcoming anime of Harikamo's Urara Meirocho four-panel manga. The company plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
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).
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
Girls from all over the country come to live in Meiro-cho for one reason: to train to become the top uranaishi – the Urara. One day, a 15-year-old girl named Chiya enters the gates, but she has another, secret reason for wanting to become an uranaishi. Together with three very different girls, Kon, Koume, and Nono, Chiya gets started as a fortune teller's apprentice.
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 cast includes:
- Sayaka Harada as Chiya
- Yurika Kubo as Koume
- Haruka Yoshimura as Nono
- Kaede Hondo as Kon
Harikamo is serializing the manga in Manga Time Kirara Miracle, and Houbunsha published the third volume in May.
