Listen to Sumire Uesaka in her next upcoming role
The curtain is rising on a new character from Kageki Shojo!!, the upcoming anime about students aiming for a theatrical career. Today we get to know Sawa Sugimoto, voiced by voice actress and idol Sumire Uesaka.
Sawa is an honor student and a skilled ballerina — but she's also a massive nerd for musical theater. Check out her new character PV below:
The manga series Kageki Shojo!! The Curtain Rises is licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment, who summarizes the series:
Like the Takarazuka Revue, the young women who go to the Kouka School of Musical and Theatrical Arts play all the parts of musical theater, be they female or male. Narada Ai is a jaded former idol performing female roles—her roommate, playing male roles, is bright-eyed country girl Watanabe Sarasa. From the school to the stage to the rest of their lives, there is no challenge these young women can’t face with their passion for performance. Also known as Kageki Shoujo!! Season Zero in Japan, this recent re-release of the original two-volume series for the franchise is packaged in one updated and beautiful omnibus.
Kageki Shojo!! premieres July 3 on AT-X, TOKYO MX, and BS11, and will be simulcast on ABEMA and d Anime Store.
