Toshiyuki Kubooka (The [email protected] character designer) directs the beach volleyball anime
The official website for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Nyoijizai's beach volleyball-themed manga Harukana Receive announced the voice cast of its two protagonists, along with their character reference visuals today.
The sports manga has been serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward since its October 2015 issue, and has released four tankobon volumes in Japan so far. The story follows high school girl Haruka Ozora who moves from Tokyo to live with her cousin in Okinawa, Kanata Higa. 172 cm-tall Haruka likes sports but an absolute beginner of beach volleyball. On the other hand, 151 cm-tall Kanata is shy, and gave up playing beach volleyball in the past because of her short stature. By chance, the two, who have totally different personalities, form a pair for beach volleyball games.

Girls!) and character designer/chief animation director Takeshi Oda (Oneechan ga Kita). C2C (Aquarion
