RE-MAIN, the original water polo anime from MAPPA, just dropped its first teaser.

The series, which is due out sometime this year, also revealed four new cast members.

Those cast members are: Sōma Saitō as Shūgo Amihama, Makoto Furukawa as Takekazu Ejiri, Tasuku Hatanaka as Yutaka Babayaro Inomata, and Daisuke Hirose as Yoshiharu Ushimado.

They join the previously announced Yūto Uemura as lead Minato, Kōtarō Nishiyama as Eitarō Oka, Subaru Kimura as Jō Jōjima, and Lynn as Chinu Kawakubo.

RE-MAIN is the brainchild of Tiger and Bunny screenwriter Masafumi Nishida, who’s credited as co-creator, writer, chief director, audio director and series script supervisor. Wowzer.

Other staff members include:

Director: Kiyoshi Matsuda
Original character designs: Aori Fujika
Character designs for animation: Shiho Tanaka
Music: Kana Utatane
Studio: MAPPA

The series revolves around Minato (Yūto Uemura), a water polo star who quit in middle school due to a traumatic incident, but joins a team in high school.
