Kodansha opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Hiroaki Samura's Nami yo Kiitekure (Wave, Listen to Me!) manga on Tuesday, revealing the staff, cast, a key visual (pictured), and the first promotional video. The anime series will begin its broadcast in April 2020.

Synopsis
The stage is Sapporo, Hokkaido. One night, our heroine, Minare Koda, spills her heartbroken woes to a radio station worker she meets while out drinking one night. The next day, she hears a recording of her pitiful grumbling being played live over the air. Minare storms into the station in a rage, only to then be duped by the station director into doing an impromptu talk show explaining her harsh dialogue. With just one recording, the many eccentric facets of Minare's life begin to pull every which direction as she falls ever deeper into the world of radio. (Source: Kodansha Comics)

Pretty interesting PV but the Staff worries me a little in all honesty. But hopefully, my worries and fears will be for naught by the end product.

Great to see Studio Sunrise handling this though, they've been a part of some amazing series and here's to hoping this will join that illustrous list too!

Thanks for the creds, by the way!

Finally some good fucking news, this manga is fantastic. Plus Sunrise is still pretty decent nowadays so glad to see this wasn't picked up by a shitty studio.

Yo that trailer is kinda lit! tho what does a bear has anything to do with the series lmao

I've always liked boyish voice from female seiyuu, haven't heard a lot from Riho Sugiyama but her in the protagonist role is pretty dope so far.

.. I just hope that the romance isn't with the old dude or anyone with large age gap though..

The PV looks really promising. Nice to see a new manga adaptation news from the studio Sunrise. Come to think, they haven't produced much TV anime on this year :o

Man, I'd love to see an interview segment with a bear, cause bears must have a lot of great life stories to tell

Mind you, I'd also love to see the bear tear the interviewer in half. Here's hoping it happens in the show

Wait. Is it possible, in my 29 years, the first time I get a normal series about the daily lives of young adult people? About ordinary normal young adult people who are not hot oneesan, cliched office lesbians or cool manly man in an action show? Maybe I already died and went to heaven?

Many authors write everyday stories when they get tired of something epic or serious. This is a kind of rest.

I love anime more than manga, not to mention the fact that young adult people are mostly represented in the latter either in the form of generic office yuri or a student version of generic harems.

that's because anime is mostly made for general audience because it's more pricey to made. manga has no such limitation. as long it has substantive reader, that's enough.
