The official website for the upcoming voice acting-themed TV anime Girlish Number today updated with a key visual featuring its five main girls and announced that it will premiere on TBS at 26:28 on October 6 (JST). It is also scheduled to be aired on Sun TV and BS-TBS from October.
The TV anime is part of the media mix project created by Wataru Watari (story) and QP:flapper (original character designs), also including a prequel novel written by Watari, a main manga series illustrated by Yuuki Doumoto, a spin-off Girlish Number momoka memorial by Mami Surada, and a full-color four-panel web manga series Girlish Number Shura by Makoto Ikezawa and Yu Tsurusaki.
Shouta Ihata, who recently worked on the Kantai Collection/KanColle TV anime series as the action director, makes his TV anime directorial debut for Diomedia. Sumie Kinoshita (The Mystic Archives of Dantalian, Medaka Box) serves as the anime character designer/chief animation director.
