As part of the 15th anniversary project for Toei Animation's PreCure franchise, Asahi Housou/TV Asahi will start airing an official collaboration TV drama Koe Girl! (Voice Girl!) in April 2018. 19-year-old Haruka Fukuhara, who voiced Himari Arisugawa/Cure Custard in the 14th TV series Kirakira PreCure a la Mode (2017-2018), is confirmed to star as the protagonist Makoto Kikuchi.
The ensemble coming-of-age drama centers on five girls who are voice actress trainees living together at
their agency's dormitory. They support and compete each other to be professional anime voice actresses.
With full support by the franchise, the drama will feature various scenes, characters, and signature phrases
from the PreCure anime stories.
