The official website for the forthcoming horse racing school-themed TV anime Fanfare of Adolescence has announced that Inori Minase (Hestia in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Rem in Re:ZERO − Starting Life in Another World) will be playing Eri Shimotsuki, only female among the main characters.
The character is described as follows: “15 years old, born in Kyoto. She enrolled in a horse racing school, thinking that she could earn money from prize money if she became a successful jockey. Hers parents used to run a horse production farm, but it went out of business. They now run a restaurant in Kyoto. She has a mature personality.”
Character visual with a tagline: “Getting rich quickly is also a worthy dream, isn’t it? “:
Minase says of her character: “Eri is the only girl among the main characters, but she is a straightforward and cool girl who does not take advantage of her gender. I’m looking forward to learning the way of being a jockey and its process along with Eri. I would appreciate your support!
The Lay-duce-produced TV anime Fanfare of Adolescence is set to premiere in Japan in the spring of 2022. Makoto Kato (Bloom Into You) is attached to direct, alongside character designer Hiro Kanzaki (Oreimo, Eromanga Sensei novel illustrator).
