The fall 2019 anime series Rifle is Beautiful, known as Chidori RSC with its domestic release, is getting its Japanese home video releases handled by Bandai Visual. They’ve opted for a two-box set approach for the twelve-episode series which begins on February 27th, 2020 and wraps up on March 27th, 2020. We had the main cover for the first set previously but now we have the expanded packaging view for it as well as getting the main artwork for the second set with its case and slipcover.
Each set is priced at 19,000 yen and is set with six episodes each.
Masanori Takahashi directed it based on the series composition by Tatsuya Takahashi. Ken Mukaigawara worked on the character designs while also serving as the chief animation director with production handled by Studio 3Hz.
The Japanese cast includes Machico as Hikari Kokura, Akane Kumada as Izimi Shibusawa, Saki Minami as Erika Meinohama, Anna Yamaki as Yukio Igarashi, Natsumi Fujiwara as Akira Shinonome, Minami Takahashi as Karen Sakashita, M.A.O as Rei Asakura, Reina Ueda as Misa Kuroi, Manaka Iwami as Ryōko Mochizuki, Yukiyo Fujii as Yūko Tsurumaki, Azusa Tadokoro as Marina Tsuji, Hiyori Kono as Ako Tōma, and Kaori Nazuka as Nodoka Ogura.
The manga, a four-panel work, comes from creator Akki Sarumi. The series began in 2015 and has four volumes out as of the announcement.
The opening and closing theme songs will be performed by the four main actresses with the songs titled “Let’s go! Rifling 4!!!!” and “Yūyake Friends.”
Plot Concept: Kokura Hikari is a first-year high school girl who loves rifle shooting. She entered Chidori High School because it had a shooting club, but finds that the club had been disbanded. She had only one day to find enough members to reform the club, but luckily was able to find three other first-year girls who she had met at a competition in middle school.
