The anime will start airing this summer on 3 July. I have been keeping a close eye on the series because its art style really resonates with me and I want to see what they can do with the water polo action scenes. Just a month and half before we see if it’s going to be as good as it looks.
The main visual has the main characters having some fun in an almost empty pool:
These are the three new characters we get to meet: Keita Kakihana who will be voiced by Taku Yashiro, Riku Momosaki who will be played by Yuma Uchida, and Koki Toguchi who will be portrayed by Shun Miyazato.
If you’re unfamiliar with RE-MAIN or haven’t been keeping up with the announcements surrounding it, the series is being produced by Masafumi Nishida of TIGER & BUNNY fame, BANDAI NAMCO Arts, and STUDIO MAPPA. The story has been announced as follows;
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.
With the RE-MAIN anime hitting Japanese airwaves in a little over a month and a half, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a bunch of more promotion for the series leading up to the launch as well as possibly a new trailer or two. I’m really looking forward to this series to see what it has to offer to fans of the water polo sport. Maybe it can be the next Yuri!!! on ICE.
