The official website for the television anime of Shiro Manta‘s My Senpai Is Annoying (Senpai ga Uzai Kōhai no Hanashi) manga posted its first promotional video on Friday. The video announces and previews the theme songs, and also announces the October 9 premiere.
The characters Futaba Igarashi, Tōko Sakurai, Natsumi Kurobe, and Mona Tsukishiro (as voiced by their cast members) are singing the character song “Annoying! San-san Week!” as the opening theme song. Another cast member, Yui Horie, is singing the ending theme song “Niji ga Kakaru made no Hanashi” (The Story Across the Rainbow).
The anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX and BS11 channels (and on the Abema streaming service) on October 9 at 25:00 (effectively, October 10 at 1:00 a.m.) It will then run on the Tochigi TV, Hokkaido TV, Animax, and TUF TV-U Fukushima channels, as well as other streaming services.
The other cast members include:
Ryota Itoh (episode director for Sing “Yesterday” for Me, Ping Pong, Aikatsu Stars!) is directing the anime at Doga Kobo (Sing “Yesterday” for Me, Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater). Yoshimi Narita (Beet the Vandel Buster, I★CHU: Halfway Through The Idol) is overseeing the series scripts, Shigemitsu Abe (Killing Bites) is the character designer, Takeshi Takadera (Yowamushi Pedal, RIN-NE) is the sound director, and Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Dr. Stone, Children of the Whales) is composing the music.
Igarashi is a hardworking young office lady. Takeda, the senpai above her at work, annoys her constantly–and yet she finds herself growing closer to him. Every day is filled with comic mishaps and romantic moments as Igarashi tries to balance work, life, and love. This full-color manga–which started its life as a webcomic–is sure to charm audiences of workplace comedies like Aggretsuko and The Office!

The series won the web manga division of the Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards in 2018. Ichijinsha published the manga’s seventh compiled book volume on April 28.
