Comic Girls Anime Gets Second Teaser Trailer

Something tells me that this is going to be more New Game! than Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun.

Earlier today, the official Comic Girls anime website updated with a new teaser trailer. The two-minute promo, which was first shown at Winter Comiket 2017, introduces the major characters, and features samples of their dialogue. At roughly the 90-second mark, the trailer cuts to a vocal theme.

Comic Girls will hit Japanese TV in April. Tokyo MX will carry the show, along with other unnamed (as of press time) networks.

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

The confirmed voice cast includes:

  • Kaoruko Moeta: Hikaru Akao
  • Koyume Koizuka: Kaede Hondo
  • Tsubasa Katsuki: Rie Takahashi
  • Ruki Irokawa: Saori Ōnishi

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.
