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.
The new key visual shows the main characters Tomoki Sakai, Yoichi Fujitani, and Shibuki Okitsu as well as Ryo Ohiro and Reiji Maruyama, who are also part of the Mizuki Diving Club. We also get to see coach Kayoko Asaki, who will influence the story a lot. Aside from the main characters, four rivals are also included in the visual! The first one is Atsuhiko Yamada, who proclaimed himself as a rival, Kiyotaka Matsuno, who always delivers a stable performance, Tsukihito Tsuji, who always receives steady scores, and Jiro Hirayama, a hot-blooded athlete who always challenges himself to learn new techniques. That makes a total of 10 characters on the visual, all of them giving their best in their own way!
Keep reading for more information on some of the characters!
