I have seen a lot of animes with different themes since the late 80s. Even so, I can’t say that I’ve seen or heard about all that many animes that are based on volleyball. Well, that just happens to be the case with Nyoijizai’s manga “Harukana Receive” (the first episode is said to premiere in July). Me, I’ve never even heard of that manga before, and that even though Harukana Receive’s first volume launched back in 2015.
To my defense though, the first English translated volume of the manga won’t be released before the third of July this year. So that might explain why I haven’t heard of “Harukana Receive” before (the second volume will drop on the 30th of October this year).
Anyways, by pure luck I spotted two tweets by the official “Harukana Receive” on Twitter last night, and that’s how I even found out about the manga and the upcoming anime. You see, the first tweet was about the anime studio C2C’s plans to release the first anime episode of “Harukana Receive”, and the second tweet was about the upcoming plans for a “Harukana Receive” event in Tokyo. Furthermore, thanks to those tweets I also discovered the first anime trailer for “Harukana Receive” (you can watch the said trailer further down the page).
Well, I truly enjoyed the trailer (and so did a whole lot of other anime fans, just check the like ratio on the trailer!). So I’m really excited to watch the first anime episode of “Harukana Receive” =) And for those who have no idea whatsoever what “Harukana Receive” is all about, here’s a short description of the anime and manga story:
“The story takes place in Okinawa, where Haruka forms a beach volleyball pair with Kanata. Kanata, who couldn’t handle the pressure put on her by her short height, had given up on beach volleyball already but is convinced by Haruka to step back on the sand once again and aim for the junior tournament.”
As for the talent team behind the “Harukana Receive”, here’s a list of everyone involved in the production of the anime:
