Winter Anime Season 2011/2012: Another UPDATED

The next preview I am going to do for the upcoming anime season is going to be of the anime television series called “Another”. The story and original character design may not have anything in common with these specific images I have chosen to put in this post, but these are official too and I just couldn’t resist positioning the main character Mei Misaki in such a cute chibi form.

I can present you with the seiyuu main cast for the upcoming show and everything else I have found around the internet.

I hope you enjoy this little preview of mine, even if the information is somewhat scarce.

UPDATE: Premiere stated for January 9, 2012!!!

Another, the anime, is based on a story taken from the original novels by Yukito Ayatsuji. Everything is about Mei Misaki, a young high school girl who is not only one of the best when it comes to grades, but also sports and is cherished by her classmates, so cherished that when she dies everyone decides to pretend she is still there, even at the graduation ceremony. This extraordinary situation calls for trouble and it is present when more than twenty years after this incident, a boy named Sakakibara Kouichi moves in to the same classroom of Mei and her group. What strikes him as curious, if not a bit creepy, is the strange girl with the eye patch, who always stands alone in there, drawing something.

The main cast, as I have mentioned, has just been announced. Here they are:

Atsushi Abe (Moritaka Mashiro in Bakuman) as Kouichi Sakakibara
Natsumi Takamori (Misaki in SKET Dance) as Mei Misaki
Ai Nonaka (Kafuka Fuura in Syonara Zetsubou Sensei)as Yukari Sakuragi
Hiroaki Hirata (Sanji in One Piece) as Tatsuji
Kazutomi Yamamoto (Yuudai Chiba in Mitsudomoe) as Mochizuki
Madoka Yonezawa (Ui Hirasawa in K-ON!) as Izumi Akazawa
Naoko Sakakibara as Reiko
Tomoaki Maeno (Pain in Naruto: Shippuuden) as Tenshgahara

The anime is directed byTsutomu Mizushima who has previously worked on Blood-C, Shinriyaku?! Ika Musume and xxxHOLiC.

The anime is expected to come out somewhere between January 1st and 31st.

Comment from Shinigami-sama?! I love creepy tpics and a dead girl who is present in a classroom is always a good one. Would I like the rmance that will probably be interpreted by the anime staff in order to make the story more digestive or would I hate it – is the question I am asking myself. Are you?
