Fall 2017 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
The MANGA.TOKYO staff had its share of summer. Now, all we wish is for the hot and humid weather to go away and give its place to the red and cool autumn.
We have all the latest information on the cast members, new characters, and theme songs of A Centaur’s Life. The TV anime adaptation of the manga A Centaur’s Life (Centaur no Nayami) will start in July 2017. The story is about the daily lives of the characters who are ‘human, but not human.’
Information on protagonist Himeno Kirihara has been already revealed, so this time we have the visuals and data of her two classmates, Manami Mitama and Quetzalcoatl Sassassul! Himeno will be voiced by Seria Fukagawa, Nozomi Gokuraku by Yuuki Kuwahara, and Kyouko Naraku by Haruka Shiraishi.
The opening theme ‘Oshiete Darwin’ will be sung by Purely Monster and will be released on 2 August 2017.
The ending theme ‘Edelweiss’ will be released on 26 July 2017.
In addition, at Machi★Asobi Vol.18, the anime festival in Tokushima Prefecture to be held on 6 May, A Centaur’s Life will have its first event titled TV Anime Centaur no Nayami: Talk & Live (TV Anime A Centaur’s Life: Talk and Concert).
Himeno Kimihara, a.k.a. Hime, is an ordinary high school girl who is living an ordinary high school life; she enjoys school romance, club activities, studying, and so on.
The only thing that makes her different from others is that she is a centaur; she has the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.
All of her friends are unique, too: Nozomi, a dragon girl; Kyouko, a horned girl; Manami, a winged girl; and Quetzalcoatl, a snake girl.
Himeno is spending a fun life at school with these unique friends.
Let’s take a look at the cute everyday lives of these interesting girls who are ‘human, but not human’!
She is nicknamed Iinchou (Class President) because she has strong leadership skills just like those of a class president. She also takes good care of her four younger sisters.
She is a foreign exchange student from Antarctica. Her people have a logical way of thinking.
‘Hi, everyone! I’m Seria Fukagawa, and I will be voicing Himeno Kimihara. Himeno is easygoing, but she also has her own way of thinking. She sometimes has sharp opinions, and I think this is one of her most charming points. I hope to voice her in a way that would make her even more charming!’

‘When I first read the original manga, I felt myself getting pulled into this mysterious and wonderful world. The story illustrates the daily lives of humans of various forms. From our eyes, their lives may seem extraordinary. I hope everyone enjoys finding out about this strange and unique world! Although my character Nozomi is a girl, she is very handsome! If I had a friend like her, I’m sure I would feel my heart pounding every day.’

‘Although Kyouko looks very gentle and easygoing, she is the one who keeps her friends as one group, and she is very mature. I love how she acts as the “straight man” and points out the funny things about what Himeno and Nozomi say, so I am excited to have an entertaining conversation with these characters! Please look forward to watching the unique story of A Centaur’s Life!’

I can’t wait to see the characters moving in the animation. I hope all of you will look forward to this in the summer!’
