The details are slowly coming in for the original anime project called Maesetsu! that Kadokawa announced in July 2019. With some of the main staff and expansive cast list brought out previously, the official site has now brought out a new teaser promo for it. It doesn’t provide for much in the way of dialogue but it gives us a pretty good look at the design and approach with the animation for it.
The work involves Shota Goto as a scriptwriter and we learned recently that Yuu Nobuta of High School Fleet has boarded the project to direct it. Katsuzo Hirata is on board with the character designs and animation production is being handled by Studio Gokumi and AXsiZ.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Aguri Ōnishi as Fubuki Kitakaze (Tokonatsu)
- Naomi Ōzora as Mafuyu Kogarashi (Tokonatsu)
- Hiromi Igarashi as Rin Shinya (R凸)
- Sakura Nakamura as Nayuta Asōgi (R凸)

A four-panel manga is in the works from Kagami Yoshimizu of Lucky Star fame which you can see a visual for to the right. That’s all that’s really known at this point.
