The PV is for the whole project which was unknown, just the key visual which shows seiyuu. The seiyuus didn't know it would get TV anime (as first project), either until seeing that end note at the PV during the event.

Toucans live in America, not Africa.
As a Brazilian I should know.


The show it titled after the main character Lion. His the Africa no Salaryman (African Office Worker). The show itself features many animals from all over the world such as the South American toucan, the North American horned lizard, the Australian dingo, European Welsh mountain sheep, etc.


Oh, I see. Sorry for getting worked up over nothing. xD

Anyway, from the main cast this seems interesting.
