Months after Studio Mappa announced an original water polo-themed TV anime titled RE- MAIN, the official website of the sports anime has now begun streaming a teaser video for the anime. The video previews the animation for the series. The video and the anime’s official website also revealed four new cast members.
RE-MAIN TEASER VIDEO
The 60-second teaser promotional video introduces the story and the main cast. Tiger & Bunny head writer, Masafumi Nishida, will serve as co-creator, chief director, series script supervisor, and scriptwriter for every episode. He is the audio director as well.
CAST IN ITS ENTIRETY
In addition to the previously announced cast, the latest video disclosed four new cast members:
- Shugo Amihama: Souma Saito (Yukinojo Tachibana in KING OF PRISM)
- Takekazu Ejiri: Makoto Furukawa (Saitama in One-Punch Man)
- Yutaka Babayaro Inomata: Tasuku Hatanaka (Denki Kaminari in My Hero Academia)
- Yoshiharu Ushimado: Daisuke Hirose (Leonhard von Glanzreich in The Royal Tutor)
RE-MAIN TV anime has an impressive staff list as Kiyoshi Matsuda (Kakegurui “Season 2”) is directing the anime at MAPPA under Nishida’s supervision. Aori Fujika will be in charge of designing original character concepts and Shiho Tanaka (Banana Fish episode animation director, Twittering Birds Never Fly: The Clouds Gather animation director) is adapting those designs for animation. Kana Utatane (“TaWaRa”) is composing the series’ music.
The sports anime will focus on Minato, a talented water polo player who stopped training after a traumatic accident in the winter of his third middle school year. He picks the sport back up again with a new team when he starts in high school but the fledgling team runs into many problems and Minato must work through his past trauma in order to become the player his team needs.
