Romantic comedy series premieres in July

The July issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine revealed more cast members for the television anime of Meguru Ueno's Hajimete no Gal (First-Time Gal) manga on Friday. The new cast includes Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Shinpei Sakamoto (left in picture below), Kenji Akabane as Keigo Ishida (center), and Minoru Shiraishi as Minoru Kobayakawa (right).

The anime will premiere in July, and will have 10 episodes and one OVA.

The show's previously announced cast includes:

Shintarō Asanuma as Junichi Hashiba

Yuki Nagaku as Yukana Yame

Eri Kitamura as Ranko Honjō

Ayana Taketatsu as Yui Kashii

Yui Ogura as Shizune Fujinoki

Hiroyuki Furukawa (My Wife is the Student Council President, Sin Strange Plus) is directing the anime and designing the characters at NAZ (Hamatora). Yūichirō Momose ("Sakura Internet Shinsei" net series) is handing series composition. Yashikin (Anime De Training! Xx!) is composing the music at MAGES.

The anime's site also updated with new staff:

Erabareshi will perform the show's ending theme song "Galtic Love."

The romantic comedy begins with Junichi "Jun" Hashiba, an uncool high school student who frets about wanting to lose his virginity. Egged on by his friends, Jun gets on his knees and confesses his love to a classmate named Yukana Yame. The confession surprisingly works and the couple goes out. However, Jun finds himself in uncharted waters with Yame, a trendy and fashion-conscious "gal" (gyaru).

Ueno launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in November 2015. Kadokawa published the third volume on March 25.
