So, ah… yeah. That… was a trailer.
Earlier today, the official Alice of Alice anime website updated with a new cast member and trailer. We break the details down below:
The minute-long trailer offers a look into the daily lives of Rise and Airi, which includes baking cakes, bathing together, and apparently some unorthodox (read: NSFW) wake-up techniques.
Aina Suzuki will play Yamirii in the series. A visual for the character was also released, which you can check out below. The character debuted in a drama CD.
Alice or Alice hits Japanese TV on April 4. HIDIVE will stream the show as part of their spring simulcast lineup.
Kosuke Kobayashi was tapped to direct the project at studio EMT Squared, with Naoko Kuwabara providing character designs. Saeka Fujimoto (Ameiro Cocoa Series Ame-con!!, The Highschool Life of a Fudanshi) is writing the show’s scripts.
Petit Milady, a vocal group made up of Aoi Yuuki and Ayana Taketatsu, will perform the show’s opening theme song.

- Yoshisato: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka

All of the female cast members are reprising their roles from the previously released Drama CD.
Riko Korie’s Alice or Alice manga launched as a one-shot in the pages of Comic Alive in 2013. The project was expanded into a full series in the publication later that year.
