The official site for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Kotaro Kosugi's 4-panel manga Futsu no Joshikosei ga Locodol Yattemita (Ordinary High School Girls Tried Being Local Idols) has posted the first key visual. The anime characters are designed by Yumi Shimizu (chief animation director for Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!). The TV anime is produced by feel (Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai, Outbreak Company) and directed by Munenori Nawa (kiss×sis, Nakaimo - My Sister is Among Them!), while Yunini Ayana (Kiniro Mosaic) works on series composition. It will be broadcasted on TBS and BS-TBS soon.
The story focuses on two high school girls Nanako Usami (CV:Miku Ito) and Yukari Kohinata (CV: Sachika Misawa), who happen to work as a local idol unit "Nagarekawa Girls." The "Nagarekawa-city" in the story is based on the real Nagarekawa area in Hiroshima Prefecture. The two main voice actresses
Ito and Misawa will join the March 22 stage event for the show in Anime Japan 2014, which is scheduled
to be held at Tokyo Big Sight.
