Ange Vierge's Masafumi Tamura directs anime set on Miyake Island

The September issue of Gakken's Megami Magazine is revealing the title and October premiere date of anime Studio Silver LINK's planned 10th anniversary anime project on Saturday. The anime is titled Two Car, and will center on two girls who enter the world of competitive motorcycle sidecar racing. The anime will air in Japan on AT-X.

The anime is set on Miyake Island, a small and sparsely populated island south of Tokyo, but still lies within the boundaries of the Tokyo Metropolis. The main characters are Yuri Miyata and Megumi Meguro. Yuri is the girlish, cool-headed, and slender driver who works the accelerator and brake, and whose household runs a guesthouse. Megumi is the boyish, impulsive, and glamorous passenger who uses acrobatic skills and body weight to handle the corner work, and whose household runs an inn. Both are students at the Tokyo Metropolitan Miyake Girls High School. While they are the complete opposites of each other, and often butt heads, they complement each other well during races.

The team will fight other motorcycle sidecar teams from all over Japan, each with their own opposing traits, such as honor student and working student, sadist and masochist, and a funny man and straight man.

Nikoichi is credited for the original work. Masafumi Tamura (Ange Vierge) is directing the anime at SILVER LINK. Katsuhiko Takayama (Looking Up At The Half-Moon, Ga-Rei: Zero, Aldnoah.Zero) is in charge of series composition and is also penning the script. Tiv (Masamune-kun's Revenge, Idol Incidents) is drawing the original character concepts, and Yuki Sawairi (Masamune-kun's Revenge) is designing those characters for animation. Toshiki Kameyama (Kan Colle, March comes in like a lion) is the sound director. Ryō Takahashi (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept., Please tell me! Galko-chan) is composing the music, and Lantis is producing the music.

SILVER LINK was established in December 2007 when it became independent from the Frontline company. The company has recently worked on or is working on the Masamune-kun's Revenge, Chaos;Child, Armed Girl's Machiavellism, Battle Girl High School, and Restaurant to Another World anime.
