It’s almost time for some fun in the sun, on the volleyball courts.
Yesterday, the official Harukana Receive anime website updated with a new teaser trailer. The minute-long promo features fast-paced cut-heavy footage from various volleyball matches in the show.
A new visual was also released, which features the six confirmed leads on the volleyball court.
Harukana Receive hits Japanese TV in July.

Nyoijizai’s Harukana Receive manga launched in the pages of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward in August 2015. The series spans four collected volumes, with the most recent shipping to retailers on September 12. Seven Seas currently holds the license for the title in the west, and intends to release the first volume in September 2018.
Seven Seas describes the title as:
When high schooler Haruka moves to Okinawa, she finds herself enamored with the beach right outside her front door and resolves to form a volleyball team with her cousin, Kanata. However, because she’s so short, Kanata gave up on volleyball ages ago. Can Haruka get her to take up the sport again in time for the junior tournament?
