The next school action anime from the renowned studio Gainax is coming this summer, and among the voice talent joining them are big names like Miyuki Sawashiro and Yui Makino.
Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C³-bu (Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C³, not to be confused with C³, the 2011 love comedy) is centered around a high school girl named Yura Yamato who enters Stella Woman’s Academy, where she joins a club called “C³” (“C-cube”), where members compete in military survival games with airsoft guns. The anime is based on the manga of the same name written by Ikoma and drawn by Momoka Midorito.
