Character Design for Honda Co-Produced OVA "One-Off"


 As reported in March, the anime follows a second year high school girl who loves her scooter so much that the project is "presented by" Honda complete with product placement of their Giorno bike.

Haruno Shiosaki is a second year high schooler who commutes via her beloved Giorno to a school at the foot of a mountain. The story seems like it will be how her attitude towards the far-off city changes due to some friends she makes at the boarding house her parents run. It's described as a "refreshing early summer tale in which young girls shine."
