The official website for the Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru (Oreshura) romantic comedy anime began streaming a new commercial on Wednesday that focuses on the character Himeka, voiced by Hisako Kanemoto. Himeka is the protagonist Eita's ex-girlfriend. The video features the opening theme song "Girlish Lover." The website had previously posted commercials featuring the character Chiwa (voiced by Chinatsu Akasaki) and Masuzu (voiced by Yukari Tamura).
The four main voice actresses — Akasaki (Chiwa Harusaki), Tamura (Masuzu Natsukawa), Kanemoto (Himeka Akishina) and Ai Kayano (Ai Fuyuumi) — will perform "Girlish Lover" under the group name "Mizukara o Enshutsu Suru Otome no Kai." Tamura is also contributing the ending theme song.
Yūji Yūji's original light novel series centers around a boy named Eita (played by Ryota Ohsaka). He has a childhood friend named Chiwa who is like a little sister to him. A silver-haired girl named Masuzu 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.
Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Tales of Vesperia ~The First Strike~) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Tatsuhiko Urahata (Natsu-iro Kiseki, Saki, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) is in 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 anime will premiere on January 5.
