Anime about school's anime research club stars Kaede Hondo, Sayaka Senbongi, Hisako Tōjō

DMM Pictures, DMM's new animation label, opened a website for a new original television anime titled Anime-Gataris (Anime Stories) on Tuesday. The site is streaming a teaser video for the anime.

The anime will premiere this fall.

The anime centers on Minoa Asagaya, a new high school student in Sakaneko Private High School. Despite being a novice to anime, Minoa's classmate Arisu Kamiigusa invites her to make an "anime research club" at school. Through conversations with her classmate Miko Kōenji, as well as various anime-loving upperclassmen, Minoa gradually gets hooked on anime. While they stand against the student council's continuous efforts to disband their club, and they ignore the impending end of the world, they talk about anime, whether in Akiba, or in real-life "sacred place" anime settings, or the hot springs.

The anime's cast includes:

  • Kaede Hondo as Minoa Asagaya (center in image above)
  • Sayaka Senbongi as Arisu Kamiigusa (right)
  • Hisako Tōjō as Miko Kōenji (left)

Kenshirō Morii (Gakumon! ~Ōkami Shōjo wa Kujikenai~, Wake Up, Girl Zoo!) is directing the anime at Wao World. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, Sweetness & Lightning) is in charge of series composition. so-shi (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood ED director) is designing the characters and is also credited as chief animation director.
