Grand Blue: Anime premiere promotional image and cast





The official website of the animated television adaptation of the manga Grand Blue by Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka has shown a new promotional image and revealed what will be the main character of the series, which has been released for next summer.

The announced deal is:

Yuma Uchida as Iori Kitahara




Ryohei Kimura as Kohei Imamura



Hiroki Yasumoto as Shinji Tokita




Katsuyuki Konishi as Ryujiro Kotobuki




Chika Anzai as Chisa Kotegawa




Maaya Uchida as Nanaka Kotegawa

Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou) will be the director, scriptwriter and sound director under the Zero-G animation studio. Hideoki Kusama (Battery) will be the character designer.

Among the seaside town of Izu's ocean waves and rays of shining sun, Iori Kitahara is just beginning his freshman year at Izu University. As he moves into his uncle's scuba diving shop, Grand Blue, he eagerly anticipates his dream college life, filled with beautiful girls and good friends.
But things don't exactly go according to plan. Upon entering the shop, he encounters a group of rowdy, naked upperclassmen, who immediately coerce him into participating in their alcoholic activities. Though unwilling at first, Iori quickly gives in and becomes the heart and soul of the party. Unfortunately, this earns him the scorn of his cousin, Chisa Kotegawa, who walks in at precisely the wrong time. Undeterred, Iori still vows to realize his ideal college life, but will things go according to plan this time, or will his situation take yet another dive

Inoue, author of the series of novels Baka to Test, and the artist Yoshioka (Rinne no Lagrange: Akatsuki no Memory) launched the manga on the pages of the Good! Afternook of Kodansha in April 2014, counting since then with nine compilation volumes.
