Directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara (Yoru no Yatterman, Monster Musume)
The official teaser site for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Taishi Miyake's road bike-themed manga Long Riders! opens today with its first main visual featuring the protagonist girl Ami Kurata. The Actas (Girls und Panzer)-produced anime is set to premiere in October 2016, as a standard 30-minute episode series. All of the voice cast in the drama CD bundled with the limited edition of the 3rd tankobon volume released in July 2014 will reprise their roles in the anime as well. The manga has been serialized in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex since 2012 and the next 7th volume is scheduled to be released on June 27.
27-year-old Tatsuya Yoshihara, well known for his directorial works for Muromi-san, Yoru no Yatterman and Monster Musume, is attached to direct, alongside series composition writer Natsuko Takahashi (Sengoku Basara Judge End, Ore Monogatari!) and character designer Tokiemon Futsuzawa (Wake Up, Girls!, Symphogear GX episode animation director).
