Urara Meirochō will adapt Harikamo’s four-panel manga series of the same name. Youhei Suzuki (Ikki Tousen, Rune Soldier) will direct the title at J.C. Staff, with Mai Otsuka (Non Non Biyori, Shakugan no Shana) providing character designs. Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Noragami) is in charge of series composition.
The confirmed voice cast includes:
- Chiya: Sayaka Harada
- Nono: Haruka Yoshimura
- Kon: Kaede Hondo
- Koume: Yurika Kubo
Urara Meirochō will begin airing on January 5, at 25:58 (1/6/2017 at 1:58 AM) on TBS. BS-TBS will début the show on January 7 at 25:00 (1/8/2017 at 1:00 AM). Sentai Filmworks describes the series as:
Girls from all over the country come to live in Meiro-cho for one reason: to train to become the top uranaishi – the Urara. One day, a 15-year-old girl named Chiya enters the gates, but she has another, secret reason for wanting to become an uranaishi. Together with three very different girls, Kon, Koume, and Nono, Chiya gets started as a fortune teller’s apprentice.
