Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan TV Anime Reveals Cast, January 8 Premiere

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Romi Park, Suzuko Mimori, Haruka Ishida, Chiemi Chiba, Mika Doi, 7 more star in nightlife comedy anime

The official website for the new television anime adaptation of Yukari Takinami's Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan four-panel comedy manga revealed its cast and January 8 premiere date on Friday.

The anime will be made in an omnibus format, with each episode having a different director, character designer, voice actors, and animation studio. The cast, and the director they will work alongside with, include:

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on January 8 at 25:00 (effectively 1:00 a.m. on January 9), and on AT-X on January 9 at 24:30 (effectively 12:30 a.m. on January 10).

Takinami's manga centers around the titular Ekoda, who works various jobs, and explores the city nightlife. While she has a boyfriend, she is more into casual relationships than taking it seriously. She considers popular girls (which she labels "birds of prey") her natural enemy.

The manga ran in Kodansha's Afternoon magazine from 2005 to 2014, and Kodansha published eight compiled book volumes for the manga. The manga previously inspired a 2011 television anime.
