The official website of the animated television adaptation of the manga Hanebado! of Kosuke Hamada has revealed two new voices for his cast.

Mikako Komatsu will be Miyako Taromaru, counselor of the badminton team of the Kitakomachi Institute, although she does not know much about the sport.

Sayaka Ohara as Uraka Hanesaki, mother of Ayano and ten times champion of the Japanese national badminton championship. He trained Ayano in the sport since he was 10 years old, but he has also trained foreign players. Her maiden name was "Shindo".

They join the cast already announced previously:

  • Hitomi Ohwada as Ayano Hanesaki
  • Miyuri Shimabukuro as Nagisa
  • Nobuhiko Okamoto as Kentaro Tachibana
  • Yuuna Mimura as Riko Izumi
  • Konomi Kohara as Erena Fujisawa

Shinpei Ezaki (Monster Strike The Movie) will be in charge of the direction of the series under the LIDEN FILMS studio, while Taku Kishimoto (Haikyu !!) will be in charge of the scripts. Satoshi Kimura (Roku of Nashi Majutsu Koshi to Akashic Records) will design the characters, being Kazuhiro Wakabayashi the sound director and Tatsuya Kato (Free !, Love Live! Sunshine !!) who composes the music.

YURiKA (Little Witch Academy, Hoseki no Kuni) will be responsible for putting the opening, while Yuiko Ohara (Hoseki no Kuni, Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san) will be the one to play the ending.

The story of the manga begins with Kentaro Tachibana, coach of the badminton team of the Kitakomachi Institute, who longs to take the team to competitions but can not because he does not have enough members. That's when he discovers Ayane Hanesaki, a girl who climbs without problems by a huge tree showing great motor abilities. Tachibana will try to get Ayano to join the team, but he will discover that the girl hates badminton.

Hamada threw the manga in the pages of the Good! Afternoon in 2013, having released its compilation volume number 12 on March 7th.

The series will be released next July in Tokyo MX, Kansai TV, BS11 and AT-X.
