It is officially announced today that a TV anime adaptation of Ken Wakai's dialogueless manga Joshi Kausei is set to premiere in Japan in April 2019. Its official website and Twitter open with a key visual, announcing its main staff and three main voice voice cast. Its story follows three high school girls' cute and happy daily life without their dialogues.
Noriyoshi Sasaki, who recently directed Holmes of Kyoto, is served as director/series composition writer at EAST FISH STUDIO, alongside character designer Kyohei Yamamoto (Anima Yell! episode animation director).
The original manga has been serialized on Futabasha's Web Comic Action since September 2013, and so
far eight tankobon volumes are released in Japan. Its English edition has been simulpublished on Crunchyroll
up to the latest 82nd chapter. The series is introduced as below:
Who needs dialog when you're this cute? The beautiful (but unlucky) Momoko, the cool, collected Shibumi,
and the refreshingly innocent Mayumi star in a "silent manga." No speeches, no dialog! Just pictures, sound
effects, and three high school girls living their daily lives.
Momoko Futo: Rika Tachibana (Namino Murakami in Between the Sky and Sea)
Shibumi Shibusawa: Tomomi Mineuchi (Eiko Tokura in Slow Start)
Mayumi Koi: Yurika Kubo (Hanayo Koizumi in Love Live!)
