In a new wave of information revealed today, we’re given a fresh look at the upcoming “Urahara” anime that’s being co-produced by the teams at Crunchyroll and Bilibili. Scheduled to begin airing in October, the anime will be calling on the talents of Sumire Uesaka for the opening theme “Antithesis Escape”, and Luna Haruna to perform the ending theme. Both Uesaka and Haruna find themselves commanding main character roles in the anime, with Uesaka voicing Mari Shirako and Haruno voicing Rido Sudou.
Within the announcement, we’re also given a look at three new characters to the series; Misa Maruno (voiced by Amano Kokoa), Sayumin (voiced by Riho Iida), and a fried shrimp (voiced by Yasunori Matsumoto). Each of the characters feature gorgeous designs and a clear personality, which can largely be attributed to the character design talents of Mariko Fujita and Mugi Tanaka.
Based on the Crunchyroll-serialized web-manga “PARK Harajuku: Crisis Team!”, written by Patrick Macias and illustrated by Mugi Tanaka, “Urahara” takes viewers on a sci-fi adventure through the real world locale of Harajuku and the culture that makes it so prevelant. It’s undeniably one of my most anticipated anime, and I can’t wait to see some of my favorite stores receive the anime treatment.
You’ll be able to check “Urahara” out in October, and can find further information on the series via the official website. You can also check out our exclusive interview with both Crunchyroll and PARK Harajuku, as well as other write-ups on the series, here.
