posted on by Egan Loo
The song "Heroine Tarumono!" by the Vocaloid creator unit HoneyWorks is inspiring a television anime which will premiere next April. The story of Heroine Tarumono! Kiraware Heroine to Naisho no O-Shigoto (To Become a Good Heroine! The Unpopular Girl and the Secret Job) follows Hiyori Suzumi, a high school girl who becomes a manager-in-training for the high school idol unit LIP×LIP.
Hiyori left her hometown to pursue her passion, track and field, by enrolling in Tokyo's Sakuragaoka High School. Looking for a part-time job in Tokyo, she ended up working as an apprentice manager for her classmates (and LIP×LIP members) Yūjirō Someya and Aizō Shibasaki. The story revolves around the coming-of-age of Hiyori (as she juggles school, extracurricular life, and managing) and LIP×LIP (as they shine on stage).
The cast includes:
Kouki Uchiyama as Yūjirō Someya (LIP×LIP)
Nobunaga Shimazaki as Aizō Shibasaki (LIP×LIP)
Ayane Sakura as Juri Hattori
Saori Hayami as Chizuru Nakamura

Ryōsuke Obokata is directing the art, and Tomoko Yamazaki is the color key artist. Yomogiko Murano is the compositing director of photography, and Gō Sadamatsu is editing.
