An energetic new preview video and the Japanese TV schedule have been revealed for Hanabi-chan wa Okuregachi ("Hanabi Tends to Fall Behind"), an upcoming TV anime based on the manga written by Lamp Shirogane and illustrated by Mamimu about a group of pachislot machines who are granted human form as cute but clueless anime girls.
The original Hanabi-chan wa Okuregachi manga is serialized on the Hero's Comiplex website. The story of the series follows Hanabi, a pachislot machine granted human form, and her two friends, Versus and Thunder V, as they work at the Shitamachi God Heaven gambling hall in downtown Tokyo.
Hanabi-chan wa Okuregachi is directed by Hiromitsu Kanazawa and features animation production by GAINA. The series will broadcast in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
- BS11: every Sunday during the 21:55 time slot beginning on July 10, 2022.
- TOKYO MX: every Tuesday during the 25:00 time slot beginning on July 12, 2022.
- AT-X: every Thursday during the 22:10 time slot beginning on July 14, 2022.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early morning programming as late night programming for the previous day, so for example the 25:00 time slot on Tuesday evening is actually on Wednesday morning at 1:00am JST.
