With the launch of a teaser site back just about a year ago, we learned that Yasuyuki Kosaka’s manga series Hokago Teibo Nisshi will be getting an anime adaptation as part of the April 2020 season. Set for an April 7th, 2020 debut, a new commercial spot has arrived and it comes just as Crunchyroll is now using a new name in their news articles about it with Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater. That gives us a hint that they likely have the license for it as well.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Kanon Takao as Hina Tsurugi
- Natsumi Kawaida as Natsumi Hodaka
- Yū Sasahara as Yūki Kuroiwa
- Satomi Akesaka as Makoto Ohno
The series has Takaharu Okuma directing based on the series composition by Fumihiko Shimo. Katsuhiro Kumagai is handling the character designs while Doga Kobo is involved with the animation production.
The manga began in 2017 as his first series with five volumes out so far.
Plot Concept: The story revolves around Hina and her group of three other female high school students. Hina is an indoor-oriented girl who likes crafts and moves to a seaside town to continue with her high school education. She meets upperclassman Kuroiwa as she walks along an embankment and joins the mysterious “Embankment Club.” Hina dislikes sea creatures, but she fishes with her fellow club members and eats their catches. She gradually starts to appreciate the appeal of the ocean.
