posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for P.A. Works' original television anime Sakura Quest revealed a new key visual for the anime's second cour (quarter of a year) on Thursday. The staff also revealed that Toho Animation Records' (K)NoW_NAME project will return from the first cour to perform the new opening song "Lupinus" and new ending song "Baby's Breath." Toho Animation began streaming a promotional video that previews "Lupinus."
P.A. Works describes the anime as the third in its "working" series about people and their jobs, after Hana-Saku Iroha and Shirobako. The story centers on five girls who work in the tourism bureau of their small rural town. The town revives its "micro-nation" tourism program, which originated from a nationwide movement during Japan's bubble economy period, and hires the five girls as "monarchs" (tourism ambassadors). The anime depicts one year in their jobs in the tourism industry, and show how they change and grow.
"Alexandre S. D. Celibidache" is credited for the original work. Soichi Masui (Chaika - The Coffin Princess, Crayon Shin-chan: Arashi o Yobu Ōgon no Spy Daisakusen) is directing the anime, and Masahiro Yokotani (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, The Devil is a Part-Timer!, Re:ZERO) is supervising the series' scripts. BUNBUN (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Izetta: The Last Witch) is designing the characters, and Kanami Sekiguchi (Hanasaku Iroha, Shirobako, Charlotte) is adapting those designs for animation.
