Meganebu! Eyeglasses Club Anime's Promo With Animation Streamed
The official website for the Meganebu! (literally, "Eyeglasses Club") television anime began streaming the third promotional video for the anime on Friday. In the video, Akira Sōma (voiced by Kenji Akabane) says, “Let's show them the Glasses Club's true power!” The video features both the anime's ending theme, "Colorful World" by Tomohisa Sakō and opening theme, "World's End" by MUCC.
The official website also revealed new characters — the club's advisors, Hotaka Shirogane (in overalls) and Kyōsuke Hariu (in a white coat) — on Friday:
Meet the Main Characters
Kenji Akabane plays Akira, a 17-year-old second-year student at Himaraya Third Technical High School. He proclaims that eyeglasses are not a means of correcting vision or a fashion accessory, but a better way to see the world.
He categorizes all of humanity into three groups: "glasses," "those who don't wear glasses," and "the ladies." He scolds those who wears contacts, going around and calling them "weaklings!!" There are many times when he, the passionate boy that he is, would argue with his fellow club-mates about glasses. His favorite kind of glasses are ones with square frames, and both of his eyes have 0.03 vision (in the Japanese eyeglasses prescription notation).

Kouki Miyata plays Mitsuki Kamatani, a 16-year old cute little brother-type character who adores Akira. He entered the eyeglasses club because he wanted to help his beloved upperclassman. Due to his extreme amount of respect, he sometimes has a split personality. He works very hard because he wants Akira to rely on him. When he first entered the school, he had uncool glasses, but he bought his new glasses with Akira. His favorite type of glasses are under-rim cel frames, and his vision is 0.08 in his left eye, and 0.4 in his right.

Takuma Hachimine does not do much of anything, even when he is in the club room. He seems like a prince who would be good at studies, but in fact, he is lacking in sense. However, he treasures his friends even more than himself. His favorite kind of glasses are Wellington cel frames, and his vision is 0.2 in his left eye, and 0.4 in his right eye (in the Japanese eyeglasses prescription notation).

The second-year student at Himaraya Third Technical High School is a childhood friend of the club president Akira. He considers eyeglasses to be a landmark innovation in modern Japan, one that ought to be praised. He is very wise because he looks up things immediately on his "yPad," but because he has no actual experience in many things, he is often considered sheltered. He never misses having at least one hour of nap time a day. Yukiya's favorite kind of glasses are metal top-rimmed glasses, and his vision is 0.01 in both eyes.

A first-year student at Himaraya Third Technical High School, Hayato is the only member of the club who wears glasses only for show. Because his eyesight was too good, he was refused entry into the club at first by Akira, but after asking again and again, he was finally accepted. Many of the members of the club think him annoying due to his nature to seek attention, but since he gets his way in the end, he doesn't mind at all. His favorite glasses are ones with oval-square cel frames, and he has 2.0 vision in both eyes (normal vision in the Japanese eyeglasses prescription notation).

So like the Free! posts I did in the summer I decided to do a Meganebu post, but I'm lazy and decided to just combined them into one. Anywho, I'm not sure who will be my fave, the loud mouth protag or his shy shut-in friend.
