Update: More background information and image added.
Update 2: The production company Pony Canyon registered the domain anime-majikoi.com, although all the website has is the character Miyako Shiina holding a sign that says, "Mada hayai yo!" (It's still early!). Lerche's Romanized spelling added and typo fixed. Thanks, 4nBlue and roanhammer.
