A TV anime adaptation of Take's comedy manga Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! (Uzaki-chan Wants to Play!) was announced by Kadokawa on Monday. The publishing company also launched an official website, revealing the main cast, staff, and a key visual (pictured). The anime is scheduled to air in Summer 2020.

Synopsis
Sakurai Shinichi's one wish is for a little peace and quiet. But Uzaki Hana–his boisterous, well-endowed underclassman–has other plans. All she wants is to hang out and poke fun at him. With the help of her chipper charm and peppy persistence, this might just be the start of a beautiful relationship! (Source: Seven Seas Entertainment)

Cast
Hana Uzaki: Naomi Oozora (Kandagawa Jet Girls)
Shinichi Sakurai: Kenji Akabane (Senki Zesshou Symphogear XV)
Ami Asai: Ayana Taketatsu (Date A Live III)
Itsuhito Sakaki: Tomoya Takagi (Cardfight!! Vanguard: Shinemon-hen)

Staff
Director: Kazuya Miura (Hataage! Kemono Michi)
Series Composition: Takashi Aoshima (Endro~!)
Character Design: Manabu Kurihara (Tokyo Ghoul: "Pinto")
Studio: ENGI

Take originally posted the manga on their Twitter account before it began official serialization in Dra-Dra-Dragon Age web manga portal in December 2017. Kadokawa will publish the fourth volume on February 7.

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga for North American release in February 2019. The second volume was released on January 14, and its third volume is scheduled for release on June 16.

Awesome. Reading the manga and it's really funny. Can't wait.

Learned about this earlier in the morning an beyond excited for this news. I stumbled across the manga from my senpai showing my art an telling me it was a manga. Grant you I only got as far as Chapter 25, but that because I plan on buying the manga since it being published in English now. All the characters are lovable an still too happy to hear of it. Just another anime to add to the list of watching together.

Wasn´t exactly planning to read the manga, but It´s sometimes compared to Nagatoro, wich is a funny romcom, so I´ll give it a try

LMAO i was gonna say, im really hoping this is a result of the SJW twitter shit

apparently not being offended is more important than finding a good way to get people to donate something like blood

lol this is the one they were using for that blood drive that got all the SJWs on Twitter triggered. Interesting that it's getting an adaptation now after that controversy. Honestly it doesn't look like my type of show but maybe I'll check it out just out of curiosity.

Well, it was only a matter of time with how popular it is. I wonder if Kadokawa's studio ENGI will mainly focus on adapting comedic manga in the future. Hmm. Although I think they were also making a Strike Witches sequels, so maybe not.

the manga is great so I'm hella looking forward to this
If you're reading this and you haven't watched Mob Psycho 100, go watch it and then continue with what you were doing.



Also, for the record, JoJo is great, it's fans are not.

Female roles seem pretty solid. Naomi Oozora already did some voice acting for Uzaki for some other stuff so was somewhat already expecting her. Can't say I ever heard of the guys though, one even appears completely new.

It shouldn't be bad as long as it isn't super repetitive (Takagi-san).

you don't have to, you're a man.

anime characters have always been so generic. what sets a character apart from others? her big tits? that's so boring.

"You don't have to, you're a man" cringe to the maximum. Also, two can play it that way, what makes all those male character's in your faves stand out? They're all generic too.

Considering the climate I sadly dont see it lasting long. That said Ive heard about it from rge and a few anitubers already, the synopsis sounds fun so I guess ill add it to the backlog and read it later to see what it has to work off of.
Edit: Jeeze the salt over lewd characters these days. Glad I only check out forums when I can.
Once a pirate always, dont be mad cause I sail the seas save for the few that catch my love. Take this as you will matey be that I love Luffey's ideal or that I hate swindlers.

Uzaki made people salty at blood drive's because of her large breasts, so you can tell the anime's gonna be good. And yeah, people salty over lewd character's is nothing new, just ignore the hater's. Like the obvious one in this thread.
