Popular Vocaloid group HoneyWorks has revealed that their song, “Heroine Tarumono!”, would be inspiring an anime and unveiled a teaser trailer and visual for it!
The anime is titled Heroine Tarumono! ~Kiraware Heroine to Naishou no Oshigoto~ (“To Become a Worthy Heroine! The Unpopular Girl and the Secret Task”) and will air in spring 2022.
And here’s the inspiration behind it all:
Inori Minase (How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom), who sang the original song, will be “reprising” her role as Hiyori Suzumi, who finds herself working as an apprentice manager for her idol classmates as she navigates a hectic school life.
Joining her (in order of appearance from the trailer) is Kouki Uchiyama (Horimiya) as Yūjirō Someya, Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!) as Aizō Shibasaki, Ayane Sakura (The Quintessential Quintuplets) as Juri Hattori, and Saori Hayami (The Honor at Magic High School) as Chizuru Nakamura.
On the production side, Noriko Hashimoto (Sarazanmai episode director) is directing the anime at studio Lay-duce, with Yoshimi Narita (I’ve Always Liked You) on the scripts, Kaori Ishii (O Maidens in Your Savage Season) as character designer and chief animation director, and Moe Hyūga (Steins;Gate 0) on the music.
HoneyWorks songs have inspired several anime series and films to date, including Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart., which is streaming on Funimation.
