Jasmine Gyuh’s Back Street Girls manga is currently being whipped up into an anime adaptation, and the official website updated with a new visual and additional information. Back Street Girls – Gokudols is set to premiere this July, with Chiaki Kon (Nodame Cantabile, Higurashi – When They Cry) directing and Susumu Yamakawa on the script at anime studio J.C. Staff.
Here’s the new visual, which Jasmine Gyuh illustrated:
Back Street Girls follows a trio of yakuza who mess up a big job and are given two choices: Commit honorable suicide or seek out gender reassignment surgery to become a female idol group. Naturally, and much to their chagrin, the idol group becomes very popular after a grueling year of training. Now they have to keep raking in cash for their boss while concealing their yakuza identities.
