The official website for the television anime adaptation of Katsuwo's Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu (Solitary "__" Life, or Hitori Bocchi's "__" Life) manga revealed one more cast member, the main staff, and a visual for the series on Monday. The site also revealed that the anime will premiere in spring 2019.
Minami Tanaka will voice Nako Sunao (the character's name in Japanese order "Sunao Nako" is a pun for "honest girl"). As previously announced, Chisaki Morishita will play the lead character Bocchi Hitori.
Takebumi Anzai (Go! Go! 575 director, episode director for Darker than Black and Mob Psycho 100) is directing the anime at studio C2C (Harukana Receive, WorldEnd). Jukki Hanada (Beyond the Boundary, Sound Euphonium, Steins;Gate) is both overseeing and writing the series scripts, and Kii Tanaka (Donten ni Warau Gaiden: Ketsubetsu, Yamainu no Chikai, Cheating Craft) is both the character designer and chief animation director.
The four-panel comedy manga centers around an extremely shy girl named Bocchi Hitori. (Her name is a wordplay on a Japanese term for solitary.) She enters middle school and vows to "make friends with the entire class" by graduation. The story follows her lonely struggle to accomplish her goal.
Kadokawa's Comic Dengeki Daiōji magazine serializes the original manga, and Kadokawa published the fourth compiled book volume on February 26.
