Yostar Pictures teased its original golf-themed anime back in October, and the sports anime fans went crazy for it. The show features a trio of girls who are young golf players with dreams and ambitions of their own.
The company has shrouded the anime in a lot of mystery ever since its reveal and is finally unveiling parts of it as the premiere gets closer. The show’s visuals might look cheerful and kawaii, but the latest PV depicts that it’s much more serious.
The original golf-themed anime Sorairo Utility by Yostar Pictures is slated for a December 31, 2021 premiere. The company also revealed a short PV to announce the premiere and introduce the characters.
The PV features the main character, Minami, a newbie at golf, and is helped by the other two characters, Haruka and Ayaka. It hasn’t been long since Minami got her hands on the golf club, yet she is enthusiastic about learning more.
The entire video has a wholesome and refreshing vibe and gives us a glimpse of the characters’ personalities. They all seem close and supportive of each other and often enjoy themselves while playing golf.
In the end, we see Minami practicing alone in a forest, indicating that the anime is more than just a jolly slice-of-life show. The show has a serious side that will have us on the edge of our seats like any other sports anime.
Moreover, the cast for the three main characters was revealed on the anime’s website, and we have them all right here for you:
|Minami||Miyu Takagi||Miyu Okamoto (Wake Up, Girls!)|
|Haruka||Yurina Amami||Tamaki Kurihara (Kiratto Pri☆Chan)|
The anime’s official website also unveiled the main staff that will be working on this beautiful anime:
|Director||Kengo Saito||DARLING in the FRANXX|
|Script||Kota Nozomi||When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace|
|Storyboard||Akira Amemiya||Little Witch Academia|
I am super excited for Sorairo Utility, as the story and animation look genuinely promising. The fact that it’s based on an underrated sport makes it even more unique, and I know it will become one of the most anticipated year-end releases.
So if you didn’t have plans to celebrate the end of 2021, Sorairo Utility has solved that for you.
