A new key visual and a new cast member have been revealed for Bocchi the Rock!, an upcoming TV anime based on the 4-panel manga by Aki Hamaji about a shy girl who begins to come out of her shell through the power of rock music.
In Bochi the Rock!, voice actor Saku Mizuo plays Ryou Yamada (pictured below), a cool and eccentric second year high school student who plays bass in the "Kessoku Band".
The story of Bocchi the Rock! follows Hitori Goto, nicknamed "Bocchi-chan," a lonely high school girl who loves playing the guitar and spends her days playing alone at home. Hitori has a negative personality and she is not very sociable, but after uploading a video of her guitar playing online, she is recruited to join the "Kessoku Band" by its drummer, Nijika Ijichi. Hitori is not used to playing in front of people, but will she be able to become a great band member?
The Bocchi the Rock! TV anime is directed by Keiichiro Saito and features animation production by CloverWorks. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan in 2022.
