Not to be confused with Anime-Gataris.

Earlier today, the staff behind the Comic Girls anime announced the show’s main voice cast. The series will star the following:

A second teaser trailer is slated to make its première at Comiket 93, which is held from December 29 – 31. The reveal will be made at i0plus’ booth during the weekend.

Comic Girls is based on Kaori Hanzawa’s manga of the same name. Yoshinobu Tokumoto was tapped to direct the project at studio Nexus, with Keiko Saito providing character designs. Natsuko Takahashi (My Love Story!!, Love Tyrant) is in charge of series composition for the title.

Other confirmed crew members include:

  • Screenplay: Jukki Hanada
  • Screenplay: Michiko Yokote
  • Screenplay: Touko Machida
  • Music: Kenichiro Suehiro
  • Sound Director: Jin Aketagawa

Kaori Hanzawa’s Comic Girls manga began publication in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Max magazine as a guest series in 2014. The title was picked up for regular serialization later in the year. The title was chosen as a first-round candidate for the 2017 Manga Taisho awards and currently has three compiled volumes in circulation. The most recent book hit stores on June 27.
