The official website of the Maesetsu!
(Maesetsu!: Opening Act
) original anime updated with the production staff members and synopsis on Saturday.
Four 19-year-old girls—Fubuki Kitakaze, Mafuyu Kogarashi, Rin Shintani, and Nayuta Asougi—who aim to become professional comedians, practice their joke materials while working as part-timers day and night. Their motto is "Make everyone happy with laughter! Their happiness makes us happy, too." But the success is still far away from them.
The four girls aspire is to stand on the stage of Namba Grand Kagetsu, considered as "Budokan in the comedy entertainment world." However, for the time being, they have decided to enter the nearest stage for them, the lowest level of Mugendai Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo, called "Farm Class."
The story also focuses on Mafuyu's sister Manatsu and her childhood friend Kanae Kanamori high school, as well as the two-member high school girls comedy unit "JKCOOL." This is a story of struggles and success of the eight girls in four units. (Source: Crunchyroll, edited)
