The official website for the television anime of Tadataka Kawasaki's Chio's School Road (Chio-chan no Tsūgakuro) manga revealed the anime's theme song artists and a new visual on Monday.

Naomi Ōzora, Chiaki Omigawa, and Kaede Hondo will perform the anime's opening theme song as their respective characters. Ōzora and Omigawa are performing the ending theme song as their respective characters. The CD singles for both the opening and ending theme songs are slated to ship on July 25.

The anime stars:

Naomi Ōzora as Chio Miyamo, a first-year high school student at Samejima Academy. She is a hardcore PC gamer who loves overseas games and despises Japanese games.

Chiaki Omigawa as Manana Nonomura, Chio's childhood friend who is also a first-year student at Samejima Academy.

Kaede Hondo as Yuki Hosokawa, Chio's cute, bright, pleasant, popular classmate who ranks #1 in the school clique system.

Yō Taichi as Madoka Kushitori, a third-year Samejima Academy student and the captain of the Kabaddi team. She loves the sport of Kabaddi and has large breasts.

Takayuki Inagaki (Rosario + Vampire, First Love Monster) is directing the anime at Diomedea and supervising the series scripts. Mayuko Matsumoto (KanColle, Gingitsune, Handa-kun) is designing the characters.

The anime has been delayed from an April premiere to a July premiere.

The "dramatic extreme going to school comedy" manga follows the titular female high school student Chio Miyamo, and her adventures to commute to school every day. Chio runs into problems both big and small, such as construction, a biker gang, a sudden urge to use the bathroom, and more.

Kawasaki launched the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine in 2014, and Kadokawa published the manga's eighth compiled volume on March 23. The manga won the "Flapper Award" at the ninth "MF Comics Awards." Yen Press has licensed the manga.
