posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's sixth issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine revealed on Tuesday that the upcoming original television anime Action Heroine Cheer Fruits will get a manga adaptation in the magazine's next issue on June 20. Azuse (Valkyrie Drive Siren -Breakout-) will draw the manga, and it will have a color opening page.
Before the start of the anime's story, the "local heroine fighter" of a certain city became popular and a national star. Because of this, "local heroines" debuted in various other places, and their action live events became a hit trend nationally.
The anime is set in Hinano City, a tranquil area that cultivates fruits, but has lost its vitality. For the town she loves, high school girl Misaki Shirogane and other girls become local heroines (at the urging of Misaki's aunt, the prefectural governor) and vow to produce action live events. The teen story depicts their strenuous efforts to revitalize their town.
Keizou Kusakawa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st, Kan Colle) is directing the anime at the studio diomedea. Naruhisa Arakawa (Kingdom, Twin Star Exorcists) is in charge of the series scripts, and Naomi Ide (Kan Colle, The Lost Village) is designing the characters. Nippon Columbia is producing the music. M.A.O, Rie Murakawa, Miku Itō, Yūki Hirose, Haruka Ishida, Erii Yamazaki, Moe Toyota, Haruka Shiraishi star in the anime.
