Yōko Hikasa as Utako.
Ari Ozawa as Mao.

The original Hinamatsuri manga is serialized in Kadokawa's Harta seinen manga magazine. The story follows Yoshifumi Nitta, a young yakuza who belongs to the Ashikawa-gumi. One day, a strange elliptical object crashes into his room, and the object contains an emotionless but powerfully psionic girl named Hina. Threatened by her psychic power, Nitta allows Hina to live with him. Nitta has to take care of Hina, who is a lazy and sloppy roommate. Gradually, Hina begins to trust Nitta, because he never tries to use her power for his own personal gain.
The Hinamatsuri TV anime is directed by Kei Oikawa and features animation by feel.. Hinamatsuri begins broadcasting in Japan in the Spring season of 2018.
