Golf will return with Sorairo Utility

On the official site for Yostar Pictures and Pony Canyon's upcoming original anime, "Sorairo Utility," a new promotional video for the project was revealed. The video confirms that the premiere has been scheduled for the year 2025 in Japan, and lists new voice cast members, including:

  • Yumiri Hanamori as Izumi Akina
  • Kazuhiko Inoue as Masao Tadokoro
  • Kenyu Horiuchi as Chosuke Tanabe

It should be remembered that this new project is based on the OVA released in December 2021 by the same production duo. The special, which premiered in December 2021, was directed by Kengo Saitou, who at the time explained, "The golf anime that I've said over and over again that I wanted to do, I'm really being allowed to do it. I'm very happy." On the other hand, this was one of the first animation projects of Yostar Pictures studios, founded in January 2020.

Synopsis of Sorairo Utility

"At this rate, I will graduate as a mere background character!" Minami Aoba was worried. I didn't have any particular strengths or things I wanted to do. Is it okay for his high school life to end up as such an ordinary supporting character? Leaving school behind, Minami searches for his own "special uniqueness." He stumbles upon a nearby golf driving range. Approaching part-time worker Haruka Akane, Minami picks up the golf club: the "Utility."

And so it was the encounter between Minami and golf. Winning isn't the only thing in golf! Everything about golf is fun! Together with the great golfer Haruka and Ayaka Hoshimi, who aspires to be an influencer, they are looking for the moment to become "protagonists"! As a super beginner, Minami wields his club again today.
