Four More Independent Ladies Join the Cast of “Comic Girls” TV Anime

 

Four more cast members have been announced for Comic Girls, an upcoming TV anime based on the humorous 4-panel manga by Kaori Hanzawa about an struggling manga artist moving into an artists-only dormitory with a bunch of other ladies that love to create comics. The new cast members include (from left to right and top to bottom):

 

 

  • Aya Endo as Ririka Hanazona, the dorm mistress of the manga-creator dorm.
  • Minami Suda as Mayu Amisawa, the editor in charge of overseeing Kaoruko’s work and also Ririka’s junior.
  • Ayaka Nanase as Miharu Nijino, homeroom teacher for Kaoruko’s group at school.
  • And Reina Ueda as Suzu Fuura, a high school student who is one year senior to Kaoruko’s group and who also draws horror comics. 

 

 

The original Comic Girls manga is serialized in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Max seinen manga magazine. The story follows Kaoruko Moeta, a 15-year-old high school student who makes yonkoma manga under the pen name of “Chaos”. After a reader survey ranks Kaoruko at rock bottom, her editor recommends a transfer to an all-female manga creator dorm, where Kaoruko lives and commiserates with fellow mangaka Koyume Koizuka (a shojo manga artist), Ruki Irokawa (an ecchi manga artist), and Tsubasa Katsuki (a shonen manga artist).

 

 

The Comic Girls TV anime is directed by Yoshinobu Tokumoto and features animation by Nexus. Comic Girls will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX and other stations beginning in April of 2018.
