We're still counting our blessings since the Tomo-chan Is a Girl! anime adaptation was revealed earlier this year, but the voices of Tomo Aizawa and Carol Olston, Rie Takahashi (Takagi in Teasing Master Takagi-san) and Sally Amaki (Sakura in 22/7), are already looking forward by visiting Tokyo's Suga Shrine together.


Director Hitoshi Nanba provided an illustration for the ena, a wooden tablet that's hung up at a shrine or temple after a prayer is written on it, on behalf of the staff and cast to pray for the anime to be a big hit.



The anime also stars Kaito Ishikawa (Sakuta in Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) as Junichiro Kubota and Rina Hidaka (Yui in Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie) as Misuzu Gundo.
