Kadokawa and TROYCA revealed a new promotional video for their Overtake! collaborative anime project at the Kyoto International Anime Manga Fair event on Saturday. The video reveals and previews Tasuku Hatanaka‘s ending theme song “Good Luck.”
The event also screened the anime’s first episode.

The story centers on the motor sport Formula 4 (F4). Freelance photographer Kōya Madoka finds himself in a slump due to a certain reason. He goes to Fuji International Speedway to work on a story, and he meets the highschool F4 racer Haruka Asahina. He suddenly finds his heart racing after not feeling much for a long time. With that, he starts supporting Haruka and the “Komaki Motors” youth team to help Haruka achieve his dreams.
