More cast members and the opening and ending theme performers have been announced for Chio's School Road (known in Japan as Chio-chan no Tsugakuro), an upcoming TV anime based on the comedy manga by Tadataka Kawasaki about an ordinary high school girl and her perfectly normal (and not at all incredibly weird) everyday commute to school.
The opening theme, entitled "Danger in my Tsugakuro" ("Danger in my School Road"), will be performed in-character by Chio Miyamo (CV: Naomi Ohzora), Manana Nonomura (CV: Chiaki Omigawa), and Yuki Hosokawa (CV: Kaede Hondo). The song will be released as a single in Japan on July 25, 2018, and it will retail for 1200 yen ($10.88 US) plus tax.
The ending theme, entitled "Nanairoad" ("Rainbowroad"), will be performed in-character by Chio Miyama and Manana Nomura. The song will be released as a single in Japan on July 25, 2018, and it will retail for 1200 yen ($10.88 US) plus tax.
The new cast members for Chio's School Road include:
- Minami Shinoda as Takkun.
- Yūko Minaguchi as Takkun Mama.
- Junji Majima as Salaryman.
- And Nobuo Tobita as Toshio Ushida.
The original Chio's School Road manga is serialized in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper seinen manga magazine, and an English language version is currently being produced by Yen Press, who describe the story as follows:
For Chio Miyamo, just making it to school is a miracle! From construction to biker gangs and the sudden call of nature, all kinds of troubles both big and small rain down on our titular hero!
The Chio's School Road TV anime is directed by Takayuki Inagaki and features animation by diomedéa. The series takes a stroll on Tokyo MX, Gifu Broadcasting System, Mie Television Broadcasting, and Sun TV beginning on July 06, 2018, with additional broadcasts to follow later on KBS Kyoto and BS11.
