The summer season of 2018 promises some fun in the sun, and Harukana Receive - an upcoming TV anime based on the beach volleyball sports manga by Nyoijizai - has published a new key visual (above), a new trailer (below), and new cast additions.
The new cast members for Harukana Receive include:

The Harukana Receive TV anime is directed by Toshiyuki Kubooka and features animation by C2C. The original manga is serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward seinen manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story as follows:
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?
Harukana Receive will broadcast in the Summer season of 2018.
