Police in a Pod TV Anime's 1st English-Subtitled Video Unveils More Cast & Staff, January Debut

posted on by Egan Loo

The official website for the television anime of Miko Yasu's Police in a Pod (Hakozume: Kōban Joshi no Gyakushū) manga posted the anime's first full promotional video on Friday. The English-subtitled video announces more cast and staff members, as well as the anime's January 2022 premiere. The website also announced the theme songs' titles and artists.

The newly announced cast members are:

Ryōta Suzuki as Seiji Minamoto, interrogation whiz

Shimba Tsuchiya as Takeshi Yamada, the young detective who is Seiji's partner

Kana Hanazawa as Miwa Makitaka

The newly announced staff members are:

Singer Riko Azuna is contributing the opening theme song "Shiranakya" (I Gotta Know), and singer nonoc is contributing the ending theme song "Change."

The police comedy centers on female police officer Kawai, who had enough of a career she wasn't even that into. She was about to hand in her resignation, when the unthinkable happened — she met the new, female director of her station! And after spending a little time with this gorgeous role model, Kawai realizes that maybe she isn't quite done being an officer after all.

The anime will star:

Yūzō Satō (The Gokusen, Kaiji) is directing the anime at Madhouse, and Ryunosuke Kingetsu (Ninja Nonsense, Samurai Girls) is in charge of the series scripts. Kei Tsuchiya (Laidbackers, Shōnen Hollywood - Holly Stage for 49) is designing the characters.

Yasu launched the manga in Kodansha's Morning magazine in November 2017, and Kodansha published the manga's 17th compiled book volumes in June. The series has 2.3 million copies in circulation.Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English. The manga was nominated for the 66th Shogakukan Manga Awards last year and the 45th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards this year. It was also #22 on Da Vinci Magazine's most recent manga ranking for "Book of the Year."

The manga already inspired a live-action television series that premiered on July 7 and ended in September.
