The official website for the television anime adaptation of Yone Sawata’s Acro Trip manga revealed the staff, character visuals, and a promotional video to commemorate the release of the manga’s fifth compiled book volume.
The video features Miku Ito as the voice actor for the main character, Chizuko Date.
The anime will premiere sometime in 2024 and is directed by Ayumu Kotake at Studio Voil. Shinichi Inotsume is in charge of the series composition, and Toshie Kawamura is slated to be the character designer.
The comedy manga centers on Chizuko Date, an otaku girl who lives in a city in Niigata Prefecture. She is obsessed with a magical girl who protects the city, named Berry Blossom.
Not many others in the city care about the frequent battles between Berry Blossom and the leader of the evil organization Fossa Magna, as she is inept and weak. However, Chizuko vows to shine a light on the magical girl’s exploits and sets out on a series of adventures.
Sawata launched the manga in 2017 in Shueisha’s Ribon magazine, and the series ended with the magazine’s January 2023 issue on December 1.
