Silver Link's Original TV Anime Two Car Reveals Aoi Koga, Aimi Tanaka as Main Cast in Video

Anime about 2 girls who enter competitive sidecar racing premieres October 7

SILVER LINK opened a website on Tuesday for Two Car, its 10th anniversary original television anime. The site is streaming a promotional video for the anime, which reveals its main cast and October 7 premiere.

The cast includes Aoi Koga as Yuri Miyata (left in picture above), and Aimi Tanaka as Megumi Meguro (right).

The anime will premiere on AT-X on October 7 at 24:00 (effectively October 8 at midnight). It will also premiere on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS Fuji on October 9.

Two Car tells the story of two girls who enter the world of competitive motorcycle sidecar racing. The anime is set on Miyake Island, a small and sparsely populated island that lies nearly 200 kilometers (about 120 miles) south of central Tokyo, but still 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 family 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 family 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 supervising and writing the series scripts. Tiv (Masamune-kun's Revenge, Idol Incidents) drafted the original character design concepts, and Yuki Sawairi (Masamune-kun's Revenge) is adapting those designs for animation. Toshiki Kameyama (KanColle, 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.
