A couple days ago we posted about the newly-announced Grand Blue Dreaming TV anime, based on the manga by Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka. NBC Universal followed that up shortly after with a new website, which features info on the staff and timing along with the first visual and promo.
Grand Blue Dreaming is set for a summer debut, with Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!) on board as writer, director, and sound director at anime studio Zero-G (DIVE!!, Battery the Animation). Character designs will be handled by Battery‘s Hideoki Kusama.
The visual’s tagline says “The sea is calling us.”
Here’s how Kodansha Comics describes the manga:
After moving out on his own to a seaside town, Iori Kitahara makes a college debut he never anticipated. A new chapter of his life unfolds, full of diving with beautiful girls and shenanigans with a gaggle of lovable bastards! Idiot-expert Kenji Inoue and au naturel authority Kimitake Yoshioka bring you a glorious college tale filled with booze-fueled antics!
