Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it has licensed the television anime of Tsukumizu's Girls' Last Tour (Shōjo Shūmatsu Ryokō) manga. The anime will stream during the fall 2017 simulcast season on Anime Strike in the United States and "select digital platforms" in other territories. Sentai FIlmworks is also planning a home video release.
The anime will premiere in Japan on the AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, and BS11 channels on October 6. It will also run on TV Aichi on October 7, and on TVQ on October 9.
Yen Press licensed the original manga and is releasing it in English. The company describes the story:
Civilization is dead, but Chito and Yuuri are still alive. So they hop aboard their beloved Kettenkrad motorbike and aimlessly wander the ruins of the world they once knew. Day after hopeless day, they look for their next meal and fuel for their ride. But as long as the two are together, even an existence as bleak as theirs has a ray or two of sunshine in it, whether they're sucking down their fill of soup or hunting for machine parts to tinker with. For two girls in a world full of nothing, the experiences and feelings the two share give them something to live for...
Takaharu Ozaki (Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-) is directing the anime at WHITE FOX. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Is the order a rabbit?, Monster Musume) is writing and overseeing the scripts, and Mai Toda (Matoi the Sacred Slayer, Holy Knight) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Sho Tanaka (No Game, No Life, Re: Zero) is producing the anime. Kenichiro Suehiro (Space Patrol Luluco, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) is composing the music.
Tsukumizu publishes the manga digitally on Shinchosha's "Kurage Bunch" website. Shinchosha published the fifth compiled volume on September 8.
