Pony Canyon is also streaming a preview of the song "Spicy the Life" by the group "Pilli Peppers," a group made up of voice actresses Yukari Anzai, Akane Fujita, and Yuri Noguchi.
The official website also revealed a new key visual.
The project is a collaboration between Yuruyuri manga creator Namori as original character designer and Yuki Yuna Is a Hero creator Takahiro for the original concept.
The anime begins with a lone high school girl named Momo (pictured in second image above), attending a high school in the city of Sorasaki. Unbeknownst to everyone, Momo is an agent who works for the private intelligence agency Tsukikage, that protects the city and its people. Under the tutelage of her senior Yuki, and her other friends, they keep the peace in the city. The story will eventually focus on six high school girls.
The anime's cast includes:
- Yukari Anzai as Momo Minamoto
- Manami Numakura as Yuki Hanzōmon
- Aya Suzaki as Mei Yachiyo
- Akane Fujita as Fū Sagami
- Aya Uchida as Hatsume Aoba
- Yuri Noguchi as Goe Ishikawa
The anime marks Akira Satou's directorial debut at Lay-duce. Takahiro is credited for series composition as well as original planning. Satoshi Ishino is adapting Namori's characters for animation. SORASAKI.F is credited for the original work.
The anime is also inspiring a manga adaptation titled Release the Spyce - Naisho no Mission (Release the Spyce - Secret Mission) with art by Meia Mitsuki, which debuted in the Dengeki G's Comic magazine in January. The project is also inspiring a serialized novelization titled Release the Spyce - Golden Genesis that debuted on February 27. The novelization focuses on the character Yuki Hanzōmon.
Update: Akira Satou's name pronunciation corrected. Thanks, Nachtwandler
