Game developer Love&Art announced an anime adaptation of its multimedia project Wave!! on Saturday. The announcement, which was made at the franchise's 1st Wonderful Party event in Chiba, also includes the development of a smartphone game. The project tagline reads, "Let's get wet!"

Synopsis
Masaki Hinaoka, who grew up near the coast of Ooarai in Ibaraki Prefecture, meets a prince-like transfer student Shou Akitsuki before the summer break, who introduces him to the world of surfing. Through surfing, Masaki meets irreplaceable friends and experiences farewell as he becomes an adult. It is the beginning of a never-ending story of boys fascinated by the charm of surfing.

Cast

Rindou Fuke: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Ballroom e Youkoso)
Souichirou William Mori: Shoutarou Morikubo (Code:Realize - Sousei no Himegimi)

Namanori Boys, which consists of the eight cast members, will perform the theme song "Ride the WAVE!!"

Love&Art launched the multimedia project in October 2018, which has since inspired music and drama CD releases, as well as radio programs. MAGES. is credited with production, featuring character designs by Yomi Sarachi (Arcana Famiglia). The Nippon Surfing Association (NSA), Murasaki Sports, and Surf Magazine are also cooperating in the project.

That's an obvious anti-female anime fan and a big troll. He's been around from alt accounts posting the same dumbest comments using 'sexism/objectification' as a valid argument. He strongly dislikes male characters portrayed in any way that could attract a female heart and gaze, it's sexist and ruining the industry he claims. It's not just jealousy, feeling threatened by the 2d ikemen good looks and personality which you can't compete or resonate with must be hella frustrating and humiliating. Lmao.

I kinda figured he was a troll, but I wanted to see how dedicated he was to his craft. Turns out, not very. I wanted to see how far he could take his crazy moon logic. :(

Ah well, I guess the Grumblecakes are his.

All the positive feedback and excitement I've seen on Twitter makes me so happy. I thought Wave!! would be another not-so-popular joseimuke multimedia project since its announcement and I am so glad it won't be in the obscurity anymore.

Surfing?? Can't wait. The guys look cute(bonus points) and it looks fun. MC(Masaki) reminds me of Haikyuu's Hinata, especially with that smile. And it seems like we're getting a lot of sports anime next year: Number24, Wave!!, Haikyuu...wouldn't be surprised if I'm missing any.

Gymnastics, skiing, water polo, rowing, tracking and field, hockey when?

That's the main project PV from last year. We have to wait for anime PV.


Ohh phew! Glad it is not going to be super cg like what it was shown breifly in the pv. Looking forward to seeing a update for it later

@HeruruMeruru
Ignore that pathetic troll. He posts the same one-liners and thinks fanservice for girls is the sexist thing ever. The upset comments will keep coming and self-important guys will complain if anime dares to appeal more to women and less to their entitled enjoyment.

That tagline tho, haha~~
This probably right up my alley but kinda hv mixed feelings abt the animation and btw so what with fujoshi fanservice no one want to force u to watch if u dislike it lol

Aug 18, 7:28 AM by aisoka

can't we have more good sports anime, and less fujoshi fanservice? this just looks like a cutesy grand blue and/or b-rate copy of free.

Aug 18, 2:28 AM by photophobic

if the anime is like the PV, CG anime?

Aug 17, 11:28 PM by Shiromeki

Oh yeah, give me that summer vibe~! Instant ptw

The more bishies playing and advertising sports, the merrier and so much YES! I can't resist. I hope it's a Summer anime so I can feel it and melt. I love them surfing boys in Sarachi style. I'm curious what kind of app game we are getting.
