Rin Suzukawa's JC Girls Comedy Manga "Asobi Asobase" Gets TV Anime Adaptation


It is officially announced today on January 26 that a TV anime adaptation of Rin Suzukawa’s comedy manga Asobi Asobase (Play and Let Play) is now in the works. The upcoming anime’s official website and Twitter opened with a teaser visual featuring its three main girls: Olivia, Kasumi, and Hanako. The manga author also provided a newly drawn memorial illustration with her message.

 

The manga has been serialized in Hakusensha’s Young Animal since 2015 and its latest fifth tankobon volume is released today in Japan. The story is set in “Asobinin Kenkyukai” (The Society for Game Players) formed by three female junior high students. Olivia has blond hair, but she can’t speak English at all because she was born and raised in Japan. Kasumi with glasses and short hair looks serious and intelligent, but she is also no good at English. And Hanako with pigtails hair is bright, but can’t be a “riajyu” (a person satisfied with one’s private life).

 

The TV anime’s main staff, voice cast, and broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date.
