Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable!’s Staff, Cast & Plot
The anime adaptation of Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable! is directed by Misuzu Hoshino and jointly produced by SILVER LINK and Blade. The chief director and scriptwriter is Mirai Minato, and the characters are designed by Katsuyuki Sato.
The cast includes Ayane Sakura voicing Minami Fuyuki, Nobunaga Shimazaki voicing Tsubasa Shiki, Yumiri Hanamori voicing Sayuri Akino, and Reina Ueda voicing Rena Natsukawa.
Picture this: Tsubasa, a high school boy, starts a new chapter in Kitami City, nestled in the breathtaking landscapes of Hokkaido.
A chance encounter at a bus stop introduces him to Minami, a captivating “gal” who stands out against the snowy backdrop with her bare legs defying the cold.
In a sea of ordinary, Minami’s uniqueness tugs at Tsubasa’s heartstrings, drawing him irresistibly to this charming Hokkaido gal.
Meet Tsubasa Shiki, a 16-year-old transfer student from Tokyo. Back in his hometown, he had zero experience with the ladies and was labeled as “lame.” But life takes a turn when he arrives in Hokkaido.
Initially skeptical about Minami Fuyuki, his vivacious classmate, Tsubasa, can’t help but find her boldness attractive.
As she befriends him and helps him adjust to his new life, Tsubasa’s view begins to shift. Minami, a gal subculture enthusiast with her blonde hair and winter-defying fashion choices, keeps Tsubasa on his toes with her playful teasing. Then there’s Sayuri Akino, their classmate who contrasts sharply with Minami, preferring video games over socializing.
Despite their differences, Sayuri finds a kindred spirit in Tsubasa. Now we have Rena Natsukawa, Tsubasa’s senior and Minami’s idol.
Rena might be an academic ace and a beauty contest winner, but her timid nature shines through. She offers Tsubasa a tutoring deal that comes with a date request.
If you’re into carefree romance and harem manga, then Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable! Deserves a spot on your list.
Unlike many of its counterparts that often come off as shallow or unrefined, Dosanko Gal boasts a refreshing take on these well-known tropes, and we’re more than excited to see if the anime lives up to its potential!
