Takaharu Okuma (Himouto! Umaru-chan sub-director) makes his directorial debut
The official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Yasuyuki Kosaka's fishing-themed manga Hokago Teibo Nisshi (Afterschool Embankment Journal) is updated today with individual visuals of its four main characters: Hina Tsurugi (CV: Kanon Takao), Natsumi Hodaka (Natsumi Kawaida), Kuroiwa (Yu Sasahara), and Makoto Ohno (Satomi Akesaka).
The story centers on Hina Tsurugi, who moved from the city to the countryside. She is an indoor-type girl and doesn't like living things. She originally planned to join the handicraft club to spend a happy high school life. But after accidentally meeting with Yuuki Kuroiwa while she was out for a walk, she was forced to join the mysterious "Teibou-bu" (the embankment club) and started fishing.
Takaharu Okuma (Yuruyuri, Himouto! Umaru-chan sub-director) makes his series directorial debut at Doga Kobo (The Helpful Fox Senko-san), alongside series composition writer Fumihiko Shimo (How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?), character designer Katsuhiro Kumagai (Gabriel DropOut). The TV anime Hokago Teibo Nisshi is set to premiere in Japan in April 2020.
