The official website and Twitter for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Ryoko Fukuyama’s Fukumenkei Noise/The Anonymous Noise romance manga series open today, revealing its three main voice cast and production staff members, and also confirmed its April 2017 premiere in Japan.
Fukuyama is best known for her debut comedy series Nosatu Junkie. Her third serialization work in Hakusensha’s biweekly shoujo manga magazine Hana to Yume, Fukumenteki Noise has been running since 2013, and currently 11 tankobon volumes are available. The TV anime project was announced back in April of this year, and a live-action film adaptation starring 19-year-old fashion model/actress Ayami Nakajo is also in the works for a fall 2017 release.
The story focuses on the protagonist girl Nino who loves singing. She is always wearing a mask because she can’t stop screaming when her feelings run high. She experienced two partings in her
childhood, one with Momo who was her first love, and another with Yuzu who was a song-writing boy.
When she becomes a high school student, the three finally meet again.
25-year-old voice actress Saori Hayami, best known as Ayase Aragaki in Ore no Imouto ga Konnani
Kawaii wake ga Nai and Shirayuki in Snow White with the Red Hair, voices the main heroine Nino,
alongside Daiki Yamashita (Sakamichi Onoda in Yowamushi Pedal) as Yuzu and Kouki Uchiyama
