The Music Interact Football for All (MIFA) organization, which brings together soccer and music activities, announced on Tuesday that its mascot character Mifanda will have a television anime titled Utau Soccer Panda Mifanda (Mifanda the Singing Soccer Panda) that will premiere in July.

The anime will star Kenshō Ono and Taichi Ichikawa as Mifanda's teammates "3-Ban" (No. 3) and "18-Ban" (No. 18), respectively.

MIFA strives to bring together soccer and music to promote communication. UKASUKA-G, a music duo formed by Mr. Children band vocalist Kazutoshi Sakurai and East End hip-hop group member Gaku-MC, is at the center of the organization's activities.
