posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the television anime of Tsukasa Unohana's four-panel manga Anima Yell! began streaming a new promotional video on Wednesday. The video previews the opening theme song "Jump Up ↑ Yell!!" performed by the "Kaminoki Kōkō Cheerleading-bu" unit and the song "Joyful" performed by Yurika.
The anime will premiere on October 7 on AT-X at 11:30 p.m., and on Tokyo MX and BS11 at 24:00 (effectively, October 8 at midnight).
The cast includes:
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.
Eriko Matsui as Inukai-sensei, the homeroom teacher of Kohane's class. She helps Kohane and the others to start the cheerleading team. She teaches math.
Hiyori Kono as Kon Akitsune
Yurina Furukawa as Basket Senpai
Nao Natsuno as Home Economics Club President

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.
