“Ano Natsu de Matteru” or something like “I’ll Wait for the Summer” is the total treat for romance lovers that will air in January. The love-themed comedy is a collaboration between the people behind “Onegai Teacher” – Kuroda Yousuke (story) and Uon Taraku (character design), produced by J.C. Staff.
You don’t know much of what will happen in the lives of the 3 lead high school girls who are the main characters, but the creators promise it will be very romantic and funny… The cast was also announced only recently:
Haruka Tomatsu (Ringo Noyamano in Air Gear, Aoba Tsukishima in Cross Game) as Ichika Takatsuki
Nobunaga Shimazaki (Shigo Yano in Giant Killing) as Kaito Kirishima
Hideki Ogihara (Yoshitaka Yamane in Major, Toshiya Hamaguchi in Mahoromatic) as Tetsurō Ishigaki
Kana Asumi (Miya Tachibana in Amagami SS, Poplar Teneshima in Working!!!) as Mio Kitahara
Kaori Ishihara (Madoka Kyouno in Rinne no Lagrange, Suzuna Ayuzawa in Kaichou-wa Maid-sama!) as Kanna Tanigawa
Rina Hidaka (Kohane Tsuyuri in xxxHOLIC, Mina Azuki in Bakuman) as Rinon
Yukari Tamura (Iori Minase in iDOLM@STER Xenoglossia, Elizabeth Middleford in Kuroshitsuji) as Remon Yamano
Hit? There wasn’t any pure romance anime lately, so it’s something fresh to see one. Being made by the creators of Onegai Sensei, a pretty successful franchise, the characters and story are probably quite likeable.
Miss? The same as the pluses – slice of life, easy-going and romance…
