Well… at least it’s an honest greeting?
Earlier today, Kadokawa started streaming the first teaser for Hajimete no Gal (First-Time Gal). The video opens with the aftermath of Junichi Hashiba’s confession of his love to Yukana. Yukana’s face speaks volumes, as she looks down upon Junichi’s bowing form and disdainfully remarks “gross.”
In addition to the teaser, the teaser introduces the major cast members as a perky electro-flavored melody.
Hajimete no Gal is based on Meguru Ueno’s manga of the same name. Hiroyuki Furukawa (My Wife is the Student Council President, Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia) is pulling double duty as director and character designer on the project at studio NAZ. Yūichirō Momose (Minori Scramble!, Sakura Internet Shinsei) is in charge of series composition for the series.
