posted on by Egan Loo
TV anime of Riko Korie's manga about twin sisters premieres on April 4

The official website for the television anime of Riko Korie's Alice or Alice - Siscon Nii-san to Futago no Imōto (Alice or Alice - The Brother With a Sister Complex and His Twin Sisters) manga began streaming the official promotional video on Wednesday. The video reveals that Aina Suzuki will play Yamirii.

Until the anime, Yamirii appeared only in the drama CD that was bundled with the second manga volume in July 2016. Suzuki is the second of the television anime's original cast members, after Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Rise and Airi's older brother.

The cast also includes:

Ayane Sakura as Rise

Rina Hidaka as Airi

Natsumi Takamori as Maco

Ayaka Suwa as Coco

Sora Tokui as Kisaki

Saori Ōnishi as Ruha

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as older brother (not pictured)

Hiyori Nitta as Alpaca-san and Kabi Usagi (not pictured)

Sentai Filmworks announced that it would stream the series and release it on home video. The stream from the streaming service HIDIVE will begin on Wednesday, April 4 at 11:30 a.m. EDT in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.

Sentai Filmworks describes the anime:

What happens when a big brother idolizes his little twin sisters? All sorts of mischief that's what! Meet Rise and Airi, twin sisters who love to hang out with their friends, go to cute pastry shops and annoy their big brother. Watch as these adorable pint-size girls learn to navigate through life while making sure their brother doesn't go too over the top.

Kōsuke Kobayashi (Idol Time PriPara chief director) is directing the anime at EMT Squared (Urahara, Rainy Cocoa). Naoko Kuwabara (Gabriel DropOut sub character design) is designing the characters. Singing duo petit milady will perform the anime's opening theme song, and Pyxis will perform the ending song.

Korie (Unlimited Fafnir) published a one-shot with the same title in Kadokawa's Comic Alive magazine in 2013, and launched the manga as a full series in the magazine later that year. The manga ran in the magazine until 2015, when it transferred to Comic Cune. Kadokawa published the manga's second compiled volume in July 2016, and the third volume will ship on March 23.

Korie draws the illustrations for Tsukasa's Unlimited Fafnir (Jūō Mujin no Fafnir) light novel series. The light novels received a television anime adaptation in 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Crunchyroll also published Saburouta's manga adaptation of the novels digitally.
