posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The staff of the television anime adaptation of Tsukasa Unohana's Anima Yell! four-panel manga opened an official website and Twitter account for the anime on Friday. The site is streaming the anime's first promotional video, which reveals the anime's cast, staff, and October premiere on Tokyo MX, BS11, and AT-X.


The cast includes:

Yuka Ozaki as Kohane Hatoya, a constantly optimistic person who loves to support others. She usually has more drive than others, but she is also clumsy and has poor reflexes. She began to be fascinated by cheerleading since a performance she saw toward the end of her middle school years.

Yuina Yamada as Hizume Arima, a girl experienced with cheerleading. She can be serious to a fault. Her stoic attitude distanced her from her former cheerleading teammates. She is usually expressionless, but can act out a good smile.

Mikako Izawa as Uki Sawatari, Kohane's childhood friend who always ends up bringing Kohane down to Earth, despite Kohane's constant antics. She may project a pragmatic and realistic front, but she actually likes cute things.

Tomori Kusunoki as Kotetsu Tatejima, Kohane's classmate. She is shy and constantly recedes from any risk of drawing attention, but is very frank about what she thinks. She doesn't think very highly of her given name.

Haruka Shiraishi as Kana Ushiku, Hizume's former teammate. She looks up to Hizume affectionately, despite them being in the same year. She usually looks apathetic, but has a complete attitude change when it comes to talking about Hizume.

Masako Sato (Golden Time, Haikyu!! episode director) will make his series directorial debut with the series at Doga Kobo. Fumihiko Shimo (The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, Clannad, Amagi Brilliant Park) is writing and supervising the series' scripts. Manamu Amasaki (Psychic Detective Yakumo) is designing the characters.

The manga centers on Kohane Hatoya, a young woman who loves to be helpful to others. After she moves from middle school to high school, she becomes fascinated with cheerleading, and she starts a cheerleading club at her high school. Joining Kohane in her cheerleading activities is the experienced Hizume and Kohane's childhood friend Uki.

Unohana launched the manga in Manga Time Kirara Carat in February 2016. Hobunsha will publish the manga's second compiled volume on February 27, and will publish the third volume on September 27.

Unohana previously wrote the Hajiotsu, D.C. II Imaginary Future, and Tenbin wa Hana to Asobu manga.
