posted on by Egan Loo

Heroine Tarumono! Kiraware Heroine to Naisho no O-Shigoto (To Become a Good Heroine! The Unpopular Girl and the Secret Job) — the television anime of the Vocaloid creator unit HoneyWorks' song "Heroine Tarumono!" — debuted the first full promotional video and key visual on Monday. The video announces more cast members, and it also announces and previews the opening theme song "Julietta" by the in-story group LIP×LIP. In addition, the anime's website announced the anime's manga adaptation.

The newly announced cast members are:

Junya Enoki as Nagisa Shiranami

Momo Asakura as Hina Setoguchi

The manga adaptation will launch in January and will serialize a new chapter on the first day and third Sunday of each month on various digital platforms.

The story of the anime 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).

Kouki Uchiyama as Yūjirō Someya (LIP×LIP)
