AOP, a six member ladies voice unit, will perform the opening theme for Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club, an upcoming TV anime based on the cycling manga by Noriyuki Matsumoto. The opening theme is entitled “Jitensha ni Hana wa Mau” (“Flowers are Twirling Around the Bicycle”), and it features lyrics and composition by Shinya Tanaka and arrangement by Mine Kushita.
Additionally, the Japanese TV broadcast schedule for Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club was announced as follows:

The original Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club manga is serialized in Mag Garden’s Monthly Comic Blade shōnen manga magazine. The story follows Hiromi Maiharu, a high school girl who moves from Nagasaki to Kamakura. Hiromi travels to her new school by bicycle, but she’s not very good at riding one. With the help of Tomoe Akitsuki, Hiromi improves her bicycling skills and decides to join the Girls Cycling Club.
