posted on by Karen Ressler
FuRyu's anime YouTube channel began streaming a commercial for SILVER LINK's Two Car original television anime series on Wednesday. The video previews Sphere's opening theme song "Heart to Heart."
The main cast includes:
Aoi Koga as Yuri Miyata, the driver of Tokyo Metropolitan Miyake Girls' High School's sidecar racing team, and one of the heroines of the anime. Yuri's family runs a guesthouse called Akatsuki, and she is her parents' only daughter. She is responsible, methodical, and takes herself very seriously. Her eye for detail is prized, and her driving sense is second to none. She is prone to oversleeping. She prides herself on her cooking, and she also has a sweet tooth.
Aimi Tanaka as Megumi Meguro, the sidecar passenger of Tokyo Metropolitan Miyake Girls' High School's sidecar racing team, and one of the heroines of the anime. Megumi's family runs an inn called Mitsuwa, and she is her parents' only daughter. She has a bright, cheerful, and boyish personality. She has excellent intuition, and her reflexes are outstanding. She hates studying, and would rather eat than cook.
Ayaka Saito as Mutsuki Shimazu, the mechanic of Tokyo Metropolitan Miyake Girls' High School's sidecar racing team. She prefers to be out of sight, where she can support her team from the rear echelon. She is drenched in sweat every day when she services Yuri and Megumi's machine to ensure it is in top racing condition. She has a mature and reserved personality.
Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Chiyuki Shiohara, the driver of Mie prefecture's Suzuka Girls' Academy sidecar racing team. Raised as a well-to-do girl, she is an honors student. She recruited Misaki into the team as her partner. She is delicate and is easily hurt. While she has her willful side, she is generally a gentle and caring girl.
Haruka Tomatsu as Misaki Nagai, the sidecar passenger of Mie prefecture's Suzuka Girls' Academy sidecar racing team. Chiyuki invited her into the sidecar racing team. Unlike Chiyuki, she doesn't come from a storied family, and works part-time to support her family. She is considered the most mature out of all of her peers. While she initially looks like she is hard to approach, she shows her kind side to anyone she befriends.
Ayaka Nanase as Izumi Murata, the driver from Ibaki prefecture's Tsukuba Girls' High School's sidecar racing team. She seems to have a queen-like personality: prideful and prone to selfishness. However, she has a lot of concern for her passenger Nagisa.
Misato Fukuen as Nagisa Suzuki, the passenger from Ibaki prefecture's Tsukuba Girls' High School's sidecar racing team. She is timid and docile, especially in contrast to her childhood friend Izumi.

Aya Suzaki as Yuria Shishido, from Tochigi prefecture's Motegi Girls' High School sidecar club. She is the younger twin sister and also has a complex about how similar they are.
Ayaka Shimizu as Kanae Kawamata, the driver from Osaka's Ikoma Girls' High School sidecar racing team. She has a bold personality and puts her all into races. She seems like someone who does not listen when others are talking, but when consulted she gives very on-point advice.
Arisa Morishima as Tamae Kuribayashi, the passenger from Osaka's Ikoma Girls' High School sidecar racing team. She is an airhead with a bright and laid-back personality. She also plays the straight man to Kanae, but in that respect gets frustrated easily.

Ayahi Takagaki as Hitomi Iseki, the passanger from Hyogo prefecture's Takachō Girls' Academy sidecar club. She is a polite, sweet, and mature mood-setter.
