Additionally, a live event will be held on this coming May 21 at Zepp Haneda Tokyo. A visual for the upcoming live event was also revealed.
The first season of Bocchi the Rock premiered last October with a total of 12 episodes. Studio CloverWorks animated the series with Keichiro Saito as director. The main cast of the anime consists of Yoshino Aoyama as Hitori “Bocchi” Goto, Sayumi Suzushiro as Nijika Ijichi, Saku Mizuno as Ryo Yamada, and Ikumi Hasegawa as Ikuyo Kita.
Crunchyroll is streaming the first season of Bocchi the Rock and they describe it as follows:
Hitori Gotoh, “Bocchi-chan,” is a girl who’s so introverted and shy around people that she’d always start her conversations with “Ah…” During her middle school years, she started playing the guitar, wanting to join a band because she thought it could be an opportunity for even someone shy like her to also shine. But because she had no friends, she ended up practicing guitar for six hours every day all by herself. After becoming a skilled guitar player, she uploaded videos of herself playing the guitar to the internet under the name “Guitar Hero” and fantasized about performing at her school’s cultural festival concert. But not only could she not find any bandmates, before she knew it, she was in high school and still wasn’t able to make a single friend! She was really close to becoming a shut-in, but one day, Nijika Ijichi, the drummer in Kessoku Band, reached out to her. And because of that, her everyday life started to change little by little…
