We learned back in May 2018 that the manga series Oshi ga Budōkan Ittekuretara Shinu from Auri Hirao is on track for an anime adaptation. We got some fresh updates in July and then got the nod about a January 2020 debut for it. The official site has now updated once again and we’ve got a new promotional video for it. This comes alongside a new key visual as well as the casting news of Hina Tachibana joining as Maina Ichii. The project has Yusuke Yamamoto directing with series composition handled by Deko Akao. Tomoyuki Shitaya and Masaru Yonezawa are handling the character designs while the animation is being produced at 8-Bit.
The previous casting announced was Ai Fairouz as Eripiyo. The new additions include Tomoaki Maeno as Kumasa, Yoshitaka Yamaya as Motoi, and Hina Tachibana as Maina Ichii.
The series kicked off in 2015 and has five volumes out as of this month in Japan.
Plot Concept: The Series focuses on a woman called “Eripiyo,” who is an extreme idol fan. She is wildly enthusiastic about Maina, the shy and lowest-ranking member of the minor underground idol group Cham Jam that performs in Okayama Prefecture. She gets so wrapped up in her love for Maina during a particular performance, that she has a major nosebleed. Eri will continue to give her complete devotion to Maina until the day she can perform at Budōkan (a major performing venue in Tokyo).
