posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Kadokawa's Sneaker Bunko imprint confirmed on Wednesday that an anime adaptation is in the works for author Tone Koken and illustrator Hiro's Super Cub novels. Toshiro Fujii (Boruto: Naruto Next Generations) is directing the anime at Studio Kai, and Toshizo Nemoto (Macross Delta, Last Hope, Inu X Boku Secret Service) is supervising and writing the series scripts. Tōru Imanishi (Girly Air Force, WorldEnd) is designing the characters.
The novels' story centers on Koguma, a high school girl in Yamanashi. She has no parents, friends, or hobbies, and her daily life is empty. One day, Koguma gets a used Honda Super Cub motorcycle. This is her first time going to school on a motorcycle. Running out of gas and hitting detours become a small source of adventure in Koguma's life. She is satisfied with this strange transformation, but her classmate Reiko ends up talking to her about how she also goes to school by motorcycle. One Super Cub begins to open up a lonely girl's world, introducing her to a new everyday life and friendship.
Kadokawa's Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint began releasing the novels in May 2017. The fifth volume shipped on July 1, and the sixth volume will ship on December 1. Kanitan launched a manga adaptation on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype website in December 2017. Kadokawa released the third compiled book volume of the manga on August 10.
