Hololive Idols Aqua, Subaru, Nene Sing The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! Anime's Ending
posted on by Egan Loo
Cover Corporation announced on Sunday that three VTubers of its hololive Idol Project — Minato Aqua, Oozora Subaru, and Momosuzu Nene — are forming a new unit called NEGI☆U. The unit's first single is "Tsumari wa Itsumo Kujikenai!" which will be the ending theme song for the television anime of Wakame Konbu's The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! manga. The CD single will go on sale on September 1.
The Great Jahy, the Dark Realm's second-in-command, cuts a frightening figure, feared and revered by all. But when a run-in with a magical girl results in the destruction of the precious mana crystal, the Dark Realm falls, transporting the newly tiny and powerless Jahy to the human world! Unfortunately, plotting the revival of the Dark Realm from a cramped, crumbling one-room apartment is no easy feat when you have rent to pay and a job to keep!
The cast includes:
- Naomi Ōzora as Jahy
- Ai Kayano as Store Manager
- Yōko Hikasa as Oya
- Kana Hanazawa as Druj
- Mikako Komatsu as Saurva
- Sumire Uesaka as Magical Girl
- Yui Ogura as Kokoro
Ogura is also performing "Fightin★Pose," the opening theme song for the first half of the series, and the song's release will debut on August 11.
Mirai Minato (Masamune-kun's Revenge, Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World, BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense.) is directing the anime at SILVER LINK Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, The Magnificent KOTOBUKI, Children of the Whales) is in charge of the series scripts. Saori Nakashiki (Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern Part 1 animation director) is the character designer and chief animation director.
