The Overtake original anime project by Kadokawa and Troyca revealed a teaser visual and trailer earlier today, along with cast and staff information. The project was previously announced, but the details weren’t known. Katsuyuki Konishi and Anan Furuya are voicing the main duo, Koya Madoka and Haruka Asahina.
Koya is a professional photographer, whose career is in a slump. Meanwhile, Haruka is a stubborn high schooler who races and refuses help and support of others, claiming that he can do it on his own.
The main staff includes:
- Original Concept: KADOKAWA × TROYCA
- Director: Ei Aoki (Fate/Zero, The Garden of Sinners: Overlooking View, Aldnoah.Zero)
- Series Composition: Ayumi Sekine
- Supervisor: Katsuhiko Takayama
- Original Character Design: Takako Shimura

The plot of Overtake is set in the world of F4 racing: Koya Madoka, a professional photographer, witnesses the driving of the young Haruka Asahina during a race he attends for his job. After seeing him drive, Koya begins feeling excitement he hasn’t felt in a long time. He decides to support Haruka with a small Komaki Motors team to make his dreams come true. Despite being different people in different stages of life, their stories soon intertwine.
