One series I enjoyed a lot of quite some time ago was Baby & Me which came from creator Marimo Ragawa. While that’s been long done and over with, they’ve got another work out there with Mashiro no Oto which was previously lined up for a TV anime adaptation. Set for an April 2021 debut, the official site has updated with an April 2nd, 2021 premiere for the show along with some cast additions. Those include Yuichiro Umehara as Seiryu Kamiki, Tasuku Hatanaka as Soichi Tanuma, Shiori Mikami as Mai Tanuma, and Rikako Aida as Yuna Tachiki.

We learned earlier this week that BURNOUT SYNDROMES will be performing the opening theme song while Miliyah Kato feat. Yoshida Brothers will be handling the end theme song.

Hiroaki Akagi will direct it based on the scripts coming from Yoichi Kato. Jiro Mishima is adapting the character designs with Shinei Animation handling the production.

The Japanese cast includes:

  • Nobunaga Shimazaki as Setsu Sawamura
  • Yoshimasa Hosoya as Wakan Sawamura
  • Yume Miyamoto as Shuri Maeda
  • Reina Kondo as Yui Yamazato
  • Nobuhiko Okamoto as Kaito Yaguchi
  • Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Rai Nagamori
  • Takako Honda as Umeko Sawamura

The manga began in 2009 in Monthly Shonen Magazine and has twenty-five volumes released so far through Kodansha Japan. We may see this one get fast-tracked digitally by Kodansha Comics USA. Check out the promo produced for the manga during its 10-year anniversary last year below to get an idea of the designs.

Plot Concept: The story follows a girl as she comes across a boy on the street with an unusual instrument case. This chance encounter between an idol singer hopeful and a player of the traditional Japanese three-stringed shamisen leads both on a journey to discovering their figurative and literal voices.
