Meet the 15 aspiring comedy stars coming to the new series
When Mikoi Sasaki, Aimi, and Ayasa Ito joined the cast of the Milky Holmes franchise, they probably had no idea what they were kicking off. But the trio, who billed themselves as Seiyu Sanshimai Team Y, would go on to become the focal point of Bushiroad's manga series Teppen—!!! — and, in turn, its upcoming anime adaptation.
Teppen—!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! follows five trios of girls chasing their comedy dreams, with the Team Y-inspired group as the focal point. Check them out in action in the new PV:
That song you heard is "Teppen Tengoku ~TOP OF THE LAUGH!!!~," performed by the cast.
