posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for 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!" — posted its second full promotional video and a new visual on Thursday. The video announces and previews the ending theme song "Tokyo Sunny Party," and it also announces the anime's April 7 premiere.
Cast members Inori Minase, Ayane Sakura, and Saori Hayami perform the ending theme song as their respective characters. The video debuts new footage for the first time, particularly from the anime-original story content such as Hiyori's fashion makeover and the school's sports festival in the second half.
The new visual is actually "Version 2" of the previous key visual, with "photos" of Sena Narumi, Mona Narumi, and the Full Throttle4 group members added:
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).
