Adaptation based on fly fishing manga by Maiko Uchino hits Japanese TV on January 07, 2022
Two new cast members have been revealed for Slow Loop, an upcoming TV anime based on the sports manga by Maiko Uchino that follows a pair of step-siblings who bond over the practice of fly fishing. The new cast members (pictured below) include:
- Nao Tōyama as Niji Yoshinaga.
- And Kiyono Yasuno as Tora Yoshinaga.
The original Slow Loop manga is serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward seinen manga magazine. The story follows Hiyori Minagi (formerly Hiyori Yamakawa), a high school girl who becomes a younger sister when her mother remarries some years after her father's death. Hiyori is very shy, but she and her new step-sister, Koharu, learn to get along better through the hobby of fly fishing, a sport that Hiyori picked up from her late father.
Slow Loop is directed by Noriaki Akitaya and Geisei Morita and features animation production by CONNECT. The series will broadcast in Japan on AT-X, TOKYO MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, and BS11 beginning on January 07, 2022.
