The official website for the television anime of Hirō Nakamichi's Hōkago Saikoro Club (Afterschool Dice Club) manga began streaming a teaser promotional video for the series on Saturday.

The above video and the website also revealed that Takaya Kuroda will voice the shop owner Takeru Kinjō.

Nakamichi launched the manga in Monthly Shonen Sunday in March 2013. Shogakukan published the manga's 14th volume on May 10. Sugorokuya is credited with cooperation on the manga.

The manga centers on Aya, who moves and starts to attend an all-girls high school in Kyoto. Her first friend is her reserved classmate Miki. After school one day, the committee chairwoman Midori takes them both to an analogue game specialty shop called "Saikoro Club" (Dice Club). There, they start playing a German board game without thinking. Thus begins Aya and Miki's search for fun through the world of analogue games.

Nakamichi's other manga include the seven-volume Tsuki no Hebi and the four-volume Haru no Kuni series.
