The official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Yasuyuki Kosaka’s fishing-themed manga Hokago Teibo Nisshi (Afterschool Embankment Journal) has posted a 80-second first PV to introduce the voice cast for its four main characters, including 17-year-old Kanon Takao as the protagonist Hina Tsurugi.
The manga has been serialized in Akita Shoten’s Monthly Young Champion Retsu since 2017 and has released five tankobon volumes. Its story centers on Hina Tsurugi, who moved from the city to the countryside. She is an indoor-type girl and doesn’t like living things. She originally planned to join the handicraft club to spend a happy high school life. But after accidentally meeting with Yuuki Kuroiwa while she was out for a walk, she was forced to join the mysterious “Teibou-bu” (the embankment club) and started fishing.
Takahiro Okuma (Yuruyuri, Himouto! Umaru-chan sub director) makes his series directorial debut, alongside series composition writer Fumihiko Shimo (How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?), character designer Katsuhiro Kumagai (Gabriel DropOut), and soundtrack music composer Miki Sakurai (The Quintessential Quintuplets). Doga Kobo (The Helpful Fox Senko-san) works on anime production.
The TV anime Hokago Teibo Nisshi is set to premiere in Japan in April 2020.
Main voice cast:
- Hina Tsurugi: Kanon Takao (Latina in If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord)
- Yuuki Kuroiwa: Yu Sasahara (Rin Namiki in Kandagawa Jet Girls)
- Natsumi Hodaka: Natsumi Kawaida (Cindy in The Magnificent Kotobuki)
- Makoto Ohno: Satomi Akesaka (Rinko Shirokane in BanG Dream!)
