The upcoming new anime series Peach Boy Riverside got its first PV today. A PV introducing character actors Haruka Shiraishi, Nao Tōyama, M.A.O., Megumi Toda, Toshiki Masuda and Jiro Saito.
The anime is based on the Peach Boy Riverside manga series written by Coolkyousinnjya (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid) and illustrated by Johanne.
According to Kodansha Comics, the plot of the manga goes like this:
Sally, princess of the Kingdom of Aldraic, dreams of traveling the world—a dangerous dream in a land where monsters roam the countryside as they please, and humans live behind high, strong walls. But when a chance meeting with traveler Mikoto gives hope to her dream, he shatters it soon after, as he reveals himself to be none other than Momotaro, ruthless demon-slayer.
Though horrified by the gore Momotaro leaves behind, Sally is convinced more than ever that she needs to learn about the world beyond her walls, and journeys out…following the steps of the mysterious, charismatic, terrifying boy she met that day…
Haruka Shiraishi plays Sally, Nao Tōyama plays Mikoto, M.A.O. is Frau, Toshiki Masuda is Hawthorn, Megumi Toda plays Carrot and Jiro Saito is Inu/Dog.
Peach Boy Riverside is being directed by Shigeru Ueda (Elemental Gelade) at Asahi Production. Keiichirō Ōchi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) is script supervisor, and character design is by Satomi Kurita (Real Girl) and Masato Kato (G-Taste OVA).
The Peach Boy Riverside anime will premiere in July.
