Saori Hayami joins the voice of the main heroine Hana's mother Tsuki
The official website for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Take's comedy manga series Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! / Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! has started streaming a 110-second third PV announcing its July 10 premiere in Japan and introducing its OP theme song "Nadamesukashi Negotiation" by Kano and Uzaki-chan (CV: Naomi Ozora).
After posting several "Uttatemita" performance videos on Nico Nico that were viewed over 25 million times in total, Kano made her professional singer debut from Warner Entertainment Japan with the OP theme for the TV anime Wish Upon the Pleiades OP in May 2015. Since then, she has performed theme songs for various anime series, such as Heavy Object (2015), Alderamin on the Sky (2016), Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Sword Oratoria (2017), Jikken-hin Kazoku: Creatures Family Days (2018), Voice of Fox (2018), and Azur Lane (2019).
Message from Kano:
"Hello to all of you, both newcomers and everyone who have supported me! I'm Kano, and I sing 'Nadamesukashi Negotiation,' the opening theme song for the TV anime 'Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!," along with Uzaki-chan. It's a very catchy song with a very wacky feeling that becomes addictive, and I can't stop repeating it. I'm hoping it will become a habit for you as well as the main anime. Thank you!"
Also, Saori Hayami (Ayase Aragaki in Oreimo) is confirmed to voice the main heroine Hana Uzaki's 43-year-old mother Tsuki. She looks much younger than her real age, and her personality is the opposite of her daughter's, gracious and soft-spoken.
The adaptation is directed by Kazuya Miura (Kemono Michi: Rise Up), alongside series composition writer Takashi Aoshima (Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!) and character designer Manabu Kurihara (Tokyo Ghoul PINTO). ENGI works on its second TV anime work following Kemono Michi: Rise Up.
