RE-MAIN Anime Shares First Trailer, Unveils Cast Members

RE-MAIN anime

At the beginning of March, we shared the news that Masafumi Nishida was teaming up with the brilliance of Studio MAPPA to bring his new creation, the water polo anime RE-MAIN to life. Today, we get our first real look at the upcoming series via the anime’s first trailer, and I have to say, it is looking really good.

The name Masafumi Nishida might sound familiar to you because he played a key role as the head writer in Sunrise’s Tiger & Bunny. For the new project, he will be taking the helm of chief director, series script supervisor, audio director, and scriptwriter for every episode (talk about wearing a lot of hats). The announcement came with a brief synopsis of the story:

In the winter of his third year of junior high school, the main character Minato Kiyomizu quit playing water polo after a particular incident, but starts playing water polo with his friends again at his new high school. However, the less than good water polo club is faced with a variety of difficulties.

The trailer for RE-MAIN also revealed four new characters that will be part of the story.

  • Soma Saito as Shugo Amihama
  • Makoto Furukawa as Takekazu Ejiri
  • Tasuku Hanataka as Yutaka Babayaro Inomata
  • Daisuke Hirose as Yoshiharu Ushimado
