Ebiten Otaku Anime: Staff and Characters Revealed

In a recent update, the Ebiten Otaku anime showed information about the main characters and the production staff. As I have previously noted, this lovely moe-style anime will be something really common, but also will be a cute way to fill-up your moe-style list of watched anime.

Ebiten revolves around a certain Japanese high school and what is happening within the different clubs in it. This specific tale is of the young student named Noya Itsuki who instead of joining the “Astronomy Club” ends up being in the “Otaku Girls’ Club”. The transcribed names seem odd, but in Japanese, out of the three kanji that make up each name, only one is different and they both are read in the same way!
