Mayonaka Punch Original Anime to Cast Hina Yomiya

On Thursday, Kadokawa and P.A. Works announced the latest addition to the cast of their original television anime series, Mayonaka Punch (Midnight Punch). Hina Yomiya is set to voice Fū, a character belonging to the “Mayonaka Punch” group. Fū is depicted as reserved and shy, yet possesses a remarkable sense of practicality among her peers. Outside of her group activities, she typically holds a part-time position at a local bathhouse.

The anime is scheduled to debut in July. No official dates have been announced so far as of press time.

The anime’s cast members are being unveiled gradually, with one announcement each day. Among the previously revealed cast are Ikumi Hasegawa as Masaki and Fairouz Ai as Live (pronounced “ribu”). Joining them is Yuina Itō, who portrays Ichiko, a member of the “Mayonaka Punch” ensemble. Ichiko adores all things cute and holds a deep admiration for “Live-sama,” faithfully carrying out Live’s instructions.

The “girls comedy” anime revolves around Masaki, a member of the NewTuber group “Harakiri Sisters,” who finds herself dismissed due to a certain incident. In pursuit of a comeback, Masaki crosses paths with Live. Though the two girls harbor divergent ambitions, they unite to stage a lively return and set their sights on achieving 1 million subscribers on NewTube.

Reuniting the principal staff from the Ya Boy Kongming! anime, including director Shū Honma, scriptwriter Hideaki Shirasaka, and studio P.A. Works, the project also features Ryōta Arima (chief animation director for The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬) adapting Tsukasa Kotobuki’s (known for works such as Saber Marionette J and Cyberteam in Akihabara) original character designs for animation. The original work is credited to “Dōga Tōkō Shōjo” (Video Submission Girls).

Furthermore, the project will encompass a manga and a novel adaptation. Tomomi Usui’s (known for Cube Arts) manga adaptation debuted in Kadokawa’s Monthly Young Ace magazine on Monday.
