From the day I received the audition materials, I had envisioned the day I would act in the anime. When I finally received this offer, I feel like my dream as a voice actor has come true. I believe that he has a sense of intimacy that allows him to project himself, as well as a kindness and coolness that make him a person that the heroine and her friends can trust. However, there are as many images of Hayori as there are people who have played the game. This time, I not only looked at the character from the perspective of when I was playing the role, but also prepared the role from scratch based on the script. At the site, people who love Summer Poke are guiding us with great detail and care. Thanks to that, I’m not only under pressure, but I’m also able to express my love for this work in a positive way. I will put everything that I have cultivated as an actor, the emotions I felt when I played the role, and the atmosphere of Torishima Island that I felt in real time from the live
performances of the cast members into my performance! I’m sorry for the long post, but I think it’s going to be a great season filled with laughter and tears! Please look forward to! Yoshimi Ohara (as Shiroha Naruse)

Sorry to keep you waiting, “Summer Pockets” will finally be made into an anime! Yay! I’ve been waiting for this day to come. It’s been six years since I met Shiroha, and I’ve always wanted to see the world of Summer Poke in action, so I’m really excited. This work is loved not only in Japan but all over the world. “I love Summer Poke!” I have received these words from many people and have cherished them. I would like to play Shiroha to the best of my ability with that feeling in mind. Let’s all make “Summer Pockets” exciting. Please look forward to it. thank you! Natsumi Takamori (as Sorakado Ao)

Cheers with shaved ice! ! I was surprised by the fact that it’s already been 6 years since the game, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how the story of Uyori and the others will be portrayed in the anime, as well as Ao and the others. We will do our best to deliver a summer that will remain deep in the hearts of those who have been waiting for the Summer Poke anime for a long time! Nene Hieda (role of Kazushima Kushima)

First of all, congratulations on the decision to make “Summer Pockets” into an anime! I can’t wait to see the characters move and talk in the beautiful scenery of the island! Although Kazu is energetic, bright, and mischievous, there is something about her that is elusive, and I would like to convey her hidden feelings and wishes to everyone to the best of my ability. This is an irreplaceable summer for the seagull, and I will cherish and cherish it. Thank you! [Comment from Key regarding the casting of Nene Hieda] Since Tomomi Mineuchi, who played the role of Kaoru Kushima, who had been indebted to her since the game “Summer Pockets” released in 2018, went out of business, Key has We held a new audition for the Summer Pockets staff. Among the many candidates who participated, it was Nene Hieda who allowed us to reunite with the sea bream. He has a graceful
liveliness, a charming and mischievous smile, and a leadership ability as a member of the whiskered cat group. The seagull played by Mr. Hieda is definitely the seagull that went on a summer adventure on Toshiroshima Island. Nene Hieda, who has recently joined “Summer Pockets” from the anime, thank you for your continued support of Ou. And to all the fans who have been waiting for the anime. This is a production with a perfect lineup, so please look forward to it. Emiri Iwai (as Tsumugi Wenders)

I’m Emiri Iwai, who plays the role of Tsumugi Wenders. Congratulations★︎The long-awaited Summer Poke anime! Yay! I’m really happy to finally be able to tell everyone! I can’t stop getting excited just thinking about how that scene in the game or this scene will be depicted as an animation, how everyone on Toshiroshima including Tsumugi would move, and what it would be like that summer. I’m so excited that I can’t stop thinking, “I love Summer Poke!” Please look forward to it for a while until the day we can deliver it! ◆Staff Comment VISUAL ARTS/Key/Summer Pockets (Game Director: Kai) 6 years have passed since the release of the first “Summer Pockets” and the decision has been made to make it into an anime. All of our staff members are pleased to be able to share this report with you. These past few years, I couldn’t (and wasn’t allowed) to leak anything, so I suppressed what I wanted to say. I was finally able to say it. “It has been decided that “Summer Pockets” will be made into an anime, and it will begin broadcasting in 2025.” Key staff participated in script meetings and dubbing, and everyone involved in “Summer Pockets” worked together to develop the anime. I can only thank Director Kobayashi for his deep understanding of the original work, and for his attitude of putting the feelings of the fans first. Please look forward to the atmosphere of “Tori Shirashima” and the new shape of Key’s “summer vacation” in the anime. Original Producer: Toya Okano We are finally able to deliver the news of the anime adaptation. First of all, we would like to apologize to our fans for making you wait so long. If we had just turned the work “Summer Pockets” into an anime, we probably could have delivered it sooner. However, what I wanted was not just “just an anime,” but “an anime that could meet the expectations of the fans,” so in order to achieve that, I needed people in the industry who said they wanted to bet everything on this work. I needed it, and I’ve been waiting for someone like that to appear. As expected, the Samapoke people appeared. From there, things went by in the blink of an eye, and we were able to welcome this day with both enthusiasm and love. Next summer is sure to be fun, so please look forward to it. Director: Tomoki Kobayashi Creating animation means creating a work that only those staff members could create, using the staff that could only come together at that moment. I believe that “Summer Pockets”, which has been given new life by such staff, can be enjoyed by both those who have enjoyed the game and those who have never played the game. Animation production sometimes takes many summers and years. Once it’s broadcast, it only takes a moment. Please enjoy this fleeting story of summer vacation. Series composition: Keiichiro Daichi Just do what you can – this is what I firmly decided to do when I was in charge of the series composition of “Summer Pockets”, a work that is
enthusiastically supported by many fans. Of course, it is impossible to incorporate all of the vast elements of the original work into the anime. Even so, thanks to the opinions of everyone at Key who attended every meeting, I am confident that we were able to incorporate as much of the episodes that fans of the original work would have wanted to see in the anime as possible. Of course, this is a work that even those who started watching the anime can enjoy, so please watch until the end. Please look forward to the sparkling, hot and heart-pounding story that Haori will experience over the course of a summer with the charming heroines! Character design: Otsuka Maiho animation! The first Key game I played was Kanon. A senior at my company at the time recommended it to me, and since then I’ve been hooked to the point where I’ve played almost all of Key’s works. In the past, I was slightly involved in the original animation for the movie version of “AIR”, but I never thought I would be able to do character design for “Summer Pockets”! All of our staff are currently working hard to create it. Everyone, please take a look! Animation production: feel. (Makoto Takigasaki) My name is Takigasaki and I am the representative of the animation production company feel. We are very honored to be able to produce an animation based on the work of Mr. Key, who has produced many masterpieces in this world. When creating the game, I placed the utmost importance on the worldview of the original work, and tried to create it carefully so that you could feel the special atmosphere of summer vacation, including the sights, sounds, and smells, down to the smallest detail. This was possible thanks to the extraordinary efforts of our trusted staff and everyone involved. As the title suggests, we will continue to work tirelessly until the end to make this anime a precious memory that you will want to keep in your treasure chest, so please look forward to it. please! Producer: Naoto Nakajima We are finally able to deliver information on the anime adaptation! Many great works have been made into films of Key’s works, and all the staff are working hard every day to make “Summer Pockets” on par with the masterpieces! I want him to continue to surprise his fans in a good way and make them like him more and more! For those who are about to learn about it, I want them to use this work as an opportunity to become “key kids”! I strongly hope that this work will become a part of your everyday life, where you can suddenly hear someone talking about Summer Pockets next to you. And despite my selfishness, the members are full of enthusiasm. These members are the best, and their passion and love for the work is second to none! Several years ago, I said to Mr. Okano when I first met him, “I will put everything I have into making Summer Pockets a work that will be loved for a long time.” I will do my best to face the work honestly and live up to those words, to Mr. Okano, everyone involved, and most of all, my fans, who believed in those words. In 2025, we will deliver the best summer vacation and excitement of your life to the whole world! ◆Staff Original work: VISUAL ARTS / Key / Summer Pockets Director: Tomoki Kobayashi Series composition: Keiichiro Daichi Character design: Mai Otsuka Art: Mimine Art director: Shunichiro Yoshihara Art design: Kaoru Aoki Specialty animation director: Teruaki Tokumaru Color design: Sari Tagawa Director of Photography: Fumi Namba 3DCG Director: Kohei Ogawa Editor: Ryuumi Maruyama Sound Director: Ryosuke Naya Original Story: Jun Maeda Original Scenario: Yu Niijima, Kai, Hasama Original Character Design: Na-Ga, Tsubasu Izumi, Yunon Nagayama, Fumuyun Music: Shinji Orito, Jun Maeda, Donmaru, Tomohiro Takeshita, Ryo Suigetsu, Shuhei Ohashi Animation Production: feel.

When he got off the ferry, which only runs a few times a day, he met a girl. With her hair playing in the sea breeze, she simply gazed off into the distance… at the boundary between the sea and the sky. Before she knew it, the girl had gone somewhere, and Haori, feeling like she had been picked by a fox, headed to her grandmother’s house. A relative, an aunt, was already there, and she was sorting through her belongings. While helping her grandmother clean up her mementos, she is confused by her first experience with island life, but adjusts to it. Contact with nature that you would never have had the chance to experience while living in the city. It was a life that reminded me of something nostalgic that I had forgotten. I met a girl staring at the sea. I met a girl who was looking for a mysterious butterfly. I met a girl who was searching for memories and a pirate ship. I met a girl who lives in a quiet lighthouse. I made a new friend on the island – I wish this summer vacation would never end. ■Original official website:
