Upcoming Summer 2017 anime Hajimete no Gal held a talk event called ‘Hajimete no stage at the currently ongoing AnimeJapan 2017 at Tokyo Big Sight on Saturday 25 March 2017. The event joined main cast actors Yuki Nagaku (Yukana Yame) and Eri Kitamura (Ranko Honjou).
The two actresses, taking their characters into consideration, introduced themselves and kicked off the event very energetically.
After that, the very first screening of the animation video played on the venue’s monitors.
The two actresses were also seeing the video for the first time and Yuki Nagaku was so happy to be part of the main cast that she was overcome with emotion.
Finally, the visuals for Yukana, Ranko, Yui, and Nene were released.
First Promotional Video Release!
The second half of the event revolved around ‘firsts’ relating to the anime. For Yuki Nagaku, this is her first time playing a heroine. It seems she had made a promise that if she ever played a heroine, she would cheer with her fans. Eri Kitamura took the lead and cheered with her. It was not an ordinary cheer. Since there is a dogeza (prostrating oneself) scene in the anime, the cheer was followed by a dogeza from the audience. It was a weird and inspiring scene!
Volumes 1 and 2 of the manga have already sold more than 230,000 copies. The anime is scheduled for a Summer 2017 release.
