The website also unveiled the first two (randomly displayed) pieces of key visual art, the main staff (as listed in the commercial), and bonus four-panel manga from Marimo (the artist of the Oreshura manga in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine).
Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Tales of Vesperia ~The First Strike~) is directing the anime adaptation of Yūji Yūji's original light novel series at A-1 Pictures. Tatsuhiko Urahata (Natsu-iro Kiseki, Saki, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) is charge of the series scripts, and Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Hanamaru Kindergarten, Astarotte's Toy) is adapting LLO's original character designs. Masatomo Ota (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, B Gata H Kei - Yamada’s First Time, Carnival Phantasm theme songs) is composing the music.
The original light novel series centers around a boy, Eita Kidō. He has a childhood friend named Chiwa Harusaki who is like a little sister to him. A silver-haired girl named Masuzu Natsukawa returns from overseas and makes Eita her "fake" boyfriend to fend off unwanted attention. This sets off a feud between Chiwa and Masuzu for Eita's affections. (The piece of the key visual art to the right shows the Eita/Chiwa pairing, while the one below shows the Eita/Masuzu pairing.)
Yūji launched the light novel series last year, and the fifth volume shipped in July. The anime will premiere this January.
