Spice & Wolf's Takeo Takahashi helms December DVD about "line-crossing" siblings

A press release has announced that a limited edition of the third volume of Masahiro Itosugi's Aki Sora "line-crossing" manga will bundle an original anime DVD on December 18. The manga deals with the taboo relationship between a high school boy named Sora Aoi and his smart, athletic, "perfect" older sister Aki. The original manga has been running in Akita Shoten's Champion RED Ichigo magazine since 2008, and the second compiled book volume is being published this month.

According to Moon Phase Comments, Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf) is directing the 25-minute anime. Kazuya Kuroda (Higurashi no Naku Koroni Rei, Vandread) is designing the characters, while Jukki Hanada (Rozen Maiden, K-ON!) is writing the script. Eri Kitamura (Toradora!'s Ami) will play Aki, and Asami Imai (THE IDOL M@STER game's Chihaya) will play Sora.

Update: More background information added.

Update 2: Akita Shoten has posted a website with an updated cast list. Shiho Kawaragi and Sayaka Kinoshita will play Aki and Sora respectively, replacing Eri Kitamura and Asami Imai from the drama CD's cast. Kana Ueda and Tae Okajima will play Nami and Kana, respectively. Thanks, dormcat.
