The North American anime distributor Viz Media began streaming a trailer to announce that it is streaming the Lagrange -The Flower of Rin-ne (Rinne no Lagrange: Flower declaration of your heart) television anime series as it airs in Japan, starting next month. The series is slated to premiere in Japan on January 8.
Tatsuo Sato (Martian Successor Nadesico) will serve as the chief director, while Toshimasa Suzuki (Sōkyū no Fafner: Dead Aggressor: Heaven and Earth) will be the series director. Production I.G (Sengoku Basara, among many other works) is credited with the original story, while Xebec (Broken Blade) is producing the animation. Haruyuki Morisawa (Dream Club, To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku) drew the key visual art for the anime. The car company Nissan is creating the series' robot designs.
The Bonichi Shimbun paper reported earlier this month that the series will run for 12 episodes from January to March, and then for another 12 episodes to July to September. The anime is set in Kamogawa City, and local officials hope that the anime will promote the region, particularly in tourism.
