Tochigi TV's Marronni Yell Idol Group Gets Short Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for Tochigi TV's anime programming announced a short anime based on its original idol group "Marronni ☆ Yell." The anime is titled Sakura no Chikai ~Marronni ☆ Yell Higashi no Asuka Shimotsuke-shi o Yell!~.
The website began streaming a promotional video that begins by recapping the group's history, including voice actors that have participated in the project.
The cast for the anime includes:
- Iori Nomizu as Nonoka (red)
- Mami Shitara as Manami (yellow)
- Motoko Kobayashi as Ruri (green)
- Hiro Shimono as Shimotsuke no Komaro
The story will be set in the city of Shimotsuke. Shimono's character, a historical hero, will hold the key to the story.
The fictional idol group celebrates Tochigi Prefecture and its local specialties, including strawberries, gourds, and gyoza buns. The group launched in 2013 with Sayaka Itsuki providing the character designs.
Itsuki draws a web manga titled Marronni ☆ Yell, and the manga received a compiled volume release (pictured right) on Wednesday, the same day as the third volume of Itsuki's other manga Susume! Tochigi-bu (Advance! Tochigi Club). The latter manga, also about Tochigi Prefecture, runs on Kadokawa's Comic Clear website.
Marronni ☆ Yell has also performed original songs and starred in a voiced comic.
