Stories centering around the workplace may not be everyone’s cup of tea. They can be easily looked at as dull and the last thing to watch to unwind. But they can be quite relatable if the characters are well-developed.
Saiso’s Story of a Small Senior in My Company is a workplace rom-com that would be adapted for television. The anime was announced in October of last year but more details have finally arrived.
On Friday, the official website for the anime series released a teaser with a visual, which revealed that the anime will premiere in July 2023. It also revealed the two main cast members and the staff.
Being a teaser, it is just a minute long. It does show the two main characters Shiori and Takuma. The video shows many traits of Shiori’s personality – friendly, cheerful, funny, and caring. A bit later, it also reveals how short she is. Takuma can be seen blushing and flustered when she is nearby.
The main voice cast for the anime is listed below:
|Character||Voice Artist||Other Works|
|Shiori Katase||Hina Tachibana||Rie Maruyama (CUE!)|
|Takuma Shinozaki||Yūki Shin||Takemichi Hanagaki (Tokyo Revengers)|
The visual above shows Shiori at the front holding a tablet with Takuma working on a computer in the background. Did you notice how her feet do not reach the floor?
The main staff members who will work on the anime are as follows:
|Producing Studio||Project No. 9|
|Scriptwriters||Keiichirō Ōchi, Yasuko Aoki, and Satoru Sugizawa|
|Character Designers||Hayato Hashiguchi and Hiromi Ogata|
|Music Composer||Sumika Horiguchi|
Workplace stories may have been around for a while. But the currently ongoing The Ice Guy and His Cool Colleague and Aggretsuko have brought this category to notice. Giving these a try would allow building a better opinion about this sub-genre.
