Keijo!!!!!!!! Characters Get Their Swimsuits On In Latest Visuals

The leading ladies of Keijo!!!!!!!! are making their entrance in a very different way.

Earlier today, Xebec released several character visuals for the Keijo!!!!!!!! (Hip Whip Girl) anime series. The visuals feature four major female cast members, clad in bathing suits.

Keijo Visual 001 - 20160516Keijo!!!!!!!! is based on Daichi Sorayomi’s manga of the same name. Hideya Takahashi (Pocket Monsters: The Origin Episode 3, Fantasista Stella) will helm the project at studio Xebec, while Keiya Nakano (AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky) provides character designs. Takao Kato is in charge of series composition.

The confirmed cast includes:

  • Nozomi Kaminashi: Lynn
  • Sayaka Miyata: M.A.O
  • Kazane Aoba: Kaede Hondo
  • Non Toyoguchi: Saori Ōnishi

Baka Updates describes Keijo!!!!!!!! as:

Kaminashi Nozomi (17) is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That’s why she wants to step into the world of “Keijo.” “Keijo” is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of “Keijo” and bring wealth and fortune for her family?

The Keijo!!!!!!!! manga began publication in Weekly Shonen Sunday in July 2013. As of press time, the series has received nine collected volumes. The anime adaptation was first revealed in February, in the 11th issue of Weekly Shonen Sunday.
