The Manga Time Kirara Carat anime adaptation of the Anime Yell!! manga is underway and promotion for it is turning out pretty good. With TOHO handling it, we also have a series of anime web shorts, similar to some of their other shows over the last few years. The twelfth and final one has now landed and it continues the silliness that we’ve seen, but unlike the Overlord ones, it looks like this is fairly “static” in a way so we may not cover too many of these.
The show has Masako Sato directing based on the series composition by Fumihiko Shimo. Manamu Amasaki is on board with the character designs while Doga Kobo is handling the animation production.
Crunchyroll recently picked up the streaming rights to the property with it set for worldwide availability outside of Asia.
The Japanese cast includes Yuka Ozaki as Kohane Hatoya, Yuina Yamada as Hizume Arima, Mikako Izawa as Uki Sawatari, Tomori Kusunoki as Kotestu Tatezima, and Haruka Shiraishi as Kana Ushiku.
The four-panel manga comes from Tsukasa Unohana which began two years ago in the magazine and has two volumes out in Japan.
Plot Concept: The story focuses on Kohane Hatoya, a young woman who loves to be helpful to others. After she moves from middle school to high school, she becomes fascinated with cheerleading, and she starts a cheerleading club at her high school. Joining Kohane in her cheerleading activities is the experienced Hizume and Kohane’s childhood friend Uki.
