Overtake! Anime To Debut In October
An original racing anime by Kadokawa and TROYCA
Overtake!, which will depict the F4 Japanese Championship in fiction. Super GT and Japanese Formula 4 are organized by the GT Association, which is also interested in this project. The GT Association established the F4 Japanese Championship in 2014, and all its competitions are staged alongside Super GT.
Anan Furuya plays Haruka Asahina, a high school student who competes in F4 for Komaki Motors and works as a part-time newspaper delivery boy, in the television show. Katsuyuki Konishi will play Kya Madoka, a freelance photographer hoping to revive his faltering career, opposite Furuya. When Kya visits a Super GT event at Fuji Speedway, where Haruka is competing, the two run into each other. The former views it as an opportunity to team up with Haruka to achieve their aspirations.
Furuya will be voicing a main character in an anime for the first time with Haruka. His voice acting credits mainly included supporting parts in films like Futsal Boys! and Dawn of the Witch and minor roles in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore's Japanese version. Before Overtake!, Jutta Qasim, the main character in the mobile game Mobile Suit Gundam UC ENGAGE, was his most prominent role.
The two most well-known characters voiced by Konishi in the anime world are Kamina in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Laxus Dreyar in Fairy Tail. Along with these famous anime series, he has also appeared in One Punch Man, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and Bleach.
Inital D and Speed Racer are famous, but they are essentially the only titles in the said group that most could immediately name; auto racing is a pretty narrow subgenre of sports anime and manga. Contrary to those, Overtake! will concentrate on organized and modern motorsport, a strategy that Capeta employed while talking about Formula 3.
After HIGHSPEED Etoile, a futuristic interpretation of the sport in collaboration with Super Formula, Overtake! is the second anime to be announced in the last six months that will follow professional racing. Initial D's sequel, street racing manga MF Ghost, would also be animated and was announced in early January.
