OVA from Asagao to Kase-san debuts a video where we can listen to its main theme

Pony Canyon has posted a new OVA promotional video that will adapt the manga Asagao to Kase-san by Hiromi Takashima. In the video, we can hear the main theme, "Asu and Tobira", played by the characters Yui Yamada (voice of Minami Takahashi) and Tomoka Kase (voice of Ayane Sakura). The track is a cover of the song of the same name released in 2003 by I Wish.

The voices announced to date are:

  • 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 direction animation. 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.

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.

The OVA debuts on June 9 in Japanese theaters.

Asagao to Kase-san 

"Please. I hope Kase-san likes me..."
Yamada is a shy second-year high school girl who is a member of the greenery committee. Kase from the class next to hers is a beautiful girl who is the ace of the school's track team. As a result of the morning glories planted by Yamada, the distance between the two people who have never exchanged words shrinks little by little.
