Toshiyuki Kubooka, C2C make anime about cousins who play volleyball together

The official website for the anime of Nyoijizai's Harukana Receive manga revealed two more voice cast members on Saturday:

Atsumi Tanezaki as Kurea (Claire) Thomas, a second-year student in the same high school as Haruka and the others, and Emiri's twin. She does not care about the small details. Ever since they were little, the sisters have excelled in school and are also ranked #2 in the nation in beach volleyball.

Rie Suegara as Emiri (Emily) Thomas, a second-year student in the same high school as Haruka and the others, and Kurea's twin. Serious and calm, she serves as a student council member. The sisters are ranked #2 in the nation in beach volleyball.

The main cast also includes:

Kana Yūki as Haruka Ōzora, a second-year high school student who moves from Tokyo to Okinawa. She has a cheerful and bright personality. She is fairly tall relative to girls her age, and always has a hard time finding clothes and shoes that fit. She is generally good at sports, but is a complete beginner at beach volleyball.

Saki Miyashita as Kanata Higa, Haruka's cousin who lives in Okinawa, and is a second-year high school student like her. She was an avid beach volleyball player in the past, but because she didn't become as tall as she thought she would, she gave it up. She has a generally reserved and introverted personality. Haruka drags her to take up beach volleyball again with her.

Toshiyuki Kubooka (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc) is directing the anime at C2C and Touko Machida (A Centaur's Life, Wake Up, Girls!) is handling the script and series composition. Takeshi Oda (Onee-chan ga Kita, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki 4) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director).

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga and plans to release the first two volumes in July and October. The company describes the story:

When high schooler Haruka moves to Okinawa, she finds herself enamored with the beach right outside her front door and resolves to form a volleyball team with her cousin, Kanata. However, because she's so short, Kanata gave up on volleyball ages ago. Can Haruka get her to take up the sport again in time for the junior tournament?

Nyoijizai launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward in August 2015. The fourth compiled volume shipped last September.
