It’s always a good day when we get to see the very first trailer for an upcoming series. Here, we’ll be looking at the upcoming Taisho era romantic comedy Taisho Otome Banashi, which will air this coming fall! In the new trailer, we not only get a very good look at the series’ sense of humor but also meet all the primary cast members.
Originally a shonen manga created by Sana Kirioka, the series ran in Jump Square magazine between July 2015 and was collected in 5 volumes in Japan. There was also a 5 volume sequel series titled Showa Otome Otogi Banashi, which ran in Shonen Jump+ online between August 2018 and May 2020.
As for the anime adaptation, SynergySP will produce the animation. Jun Hatori will serve as the director and will work off scripts written by Hiroko Fukuda. Mayu Watanabe will design the characters and Yasuharu Takanashi will compose the background music.
Set in 1921, the story is centered on a young man named Tamahiko Shima, who was the victim of a tragic accident that left his right arm disabled. Sent away to the countryside by his father, Tamahiko is set to live his life alone, hidden away from the world… but those plans change when it’s revealed that his father has also purchased a bride for his son; the beautiful young girl Yuzuki Tachibana.
The primary cast for the series, as revealed in the trailer, reads as follows (character names first):
Tamahiko Shima: Yusuke Kobayashi
This seems like a sweet and charming little romantic comedy about a young bride who is eager to please her unwitting new husband without realizing how to go about doing it. I’m willing to be charmed by this one, and I hope that it’s a pleasant surprise when it airs in the fall.
