Asagao to Kase-san releases a new announcement of his next animated adaptation

Exclusive promotion


The OVA that will adapt the sleeve Asagao to Kase-san of Hiromi Takashima has released a new promotional video in collaboration with the service of online purchase of cinema tickets Kinepass. Recall that its premiere is scheduled for June 9 in Japanese cinemas.


The deal announced to date is:

Minami Takahashi as Yui Yamada
Ayane Sakura as Tomoka Kase
Ibuki Kido as Mikawa
Minako Kotobuki as Inoue-senpai
Masumi Asano as Sensei
Yumi Uchiyama as a Trainer
Fukushi Ochiai as a character not announced at the moment

The team returns almost entirely from the five-minute animated short that premiered last May. Takuya Sato (Sukkite Ii na yo) was the director of the video under ZEXCS, being Kyuta Sakai responsible for the character designs and animation direction. Yuka Hirama (Haganai) was responsible for the artistic direction, although this time the role will change and will go to Kazuyuki Hashimoto (Cowboy Bebop, Summer Wars). Hiromi Iwaida (Rental Magica) was responsible for the color design, Takeshi Kuchiba (Densetsu Yuusha no Densetsu) was the director of photography and Masahiro Goto (One Piece, Ace Attorney) was responsible for the editing.

The main theme will be "Asu e no Tobira", played by the characters Yui Yamada (voice of Minami Takahashi) and Tomoka Kase (voice of Ayane Sakura). The theme is a cover of the song of the same name launched in 2003 by I Wish.

The manga follows a romance between the clumsy and flower-loving Yamada, and the exuberant Kase-san, athletics star of the school. Although girls do not have much in common at first sight, both will start a romance in which they will learn from each other.

Takashima published the manga in Shinshokan's Hirari magazine until it closed in 2014. It is currently published on the Web Wings website of the same publisher.
