The team of the animated television adaptation of the manga Back Street Girls by Jasmine Gyuh has revealed a new promotional image of the series. The anime will premiere on July 4 at 1:00 in BS11, and will be released shortly thereafter at Tokyo MX and MBS.


In the cast we will find two voices for each character, one as a yakuza and the other for his idol identity:

The story is played by three hard and virulent yakuzas who have failed their boss again with a very important job, so this offers them two options: commit suicide with honor, or go to Thailand on a trip to go through a sex operation and become the three in "feminine" idols. Thus, after a hard year of training debut as idols, but their popularity will skyrocket and they will have to work more than they expected, and also hide their origins.
Back Street Girls was launched on the pages of Weekly Young Magazine in March 2015 and to date has 10 compilation volumes.
