Ani-One Asia Streams Birdie Wing, Deaimon Anime

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Streams for both anime premiere on Wednesday

Ani-One Asia announced on Monday and Tuesday that it will stream the Birdie Wing -Golf Girls' Story- anime and the Deaimon anime.

Birdie Wing -Golf Girls' Story- is Bandai Namco Pictures' new original golf television anime. Ani-One Asia's stream for the anime will debut on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. GMT +8. The anime will premiere in Japan on Tuesday.

Bandai Namco Pictures describes the anime as a youth story centering on two young women golfers named Eve and Aoi Amawashi. The two come from completely different backgrounds, and have the completely opposite play styles, and together they will shake the world of golf.

Akari Kitō plays Eve, while Asami Seto plays Aoi Amawashi.

Takayuki Inagaki (Desert Punk, Rosario + Vampire, Chio's School Road, Ninja Box) is directing the anime at Bandai Namco Pictures, and Yousuke Kuroda (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, My Hero Academia) is in charge of the series scripts. Kotaro Nakagawa (Code Geass) and Hironori Anazawa (Scarlet Nexus) are composing the music. Professional golf coach and Junior World Golf Championship Japan team coach Tōru Inoue is overseeing the anime. Bandai Namco Pictures is producing the anime in association with the Global Golf Media Group.

Kohmi Hirose will perform the anime's opening theme song, titled "Venus Line." Tsukuyomi will perfom the anime's ending theme song "Yodaka."

Deaimon is the television anime of Rin Asano's manga of the same name. Ani-One Asia's stream for the anime will debut on Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. GMT +8. The anime will premiere in Japan on Wednesday.

The manga's story centers on Nagomu, a man who left his home in Kyoto and his family's confectionary shop when he became a musician. Upon hearing that his father has been hospitalized though, he comes back home to take over the family business. However, while he was gone, a young girl named Itsuka started working at the shop. The whereabouts of Itsuka's parents is unknown, and she has no other relatives, and Nagomu finds himself as foster parent for Itsuka. Itsuka, on the other hand, dislikes Nagomu for abandoning the family to become a musician. She proclaims that it will be her who will take over the shop one day instead of Nagomu.

The anime stars Nobunaga Shimazaki as Nagomu Irino and Kozue Yūki as Itsuka Yukihira.

Fumitoshi Oizaki (A Centaur's Life, Romeo × Juliet, AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue) is directing the anime at Encourage Films (Is the order a rabbit? BLOOM, Etotama, Isekai Cheat Magician). Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Tamako Love Story, Liz and the Blue Bird) is overseeing the series scripts, and Sakae Shibuya (A Centaur's Life, Magical Girl Site) is the character designer and chief animation director.

Maaya Sakamoto is performing the anime's opening theme song "Sumire" (Pansy), and she wrote the song's lyrics. The special unit Deaimon — singer-songwriter ayaho and musician and composer Junichi Soga — performs the ending theme song "Koko ni Aru Yakusoku."
