The story begins when Yuzuki suddenly moves from Tokyo into the countryside home of Haruto.
Hosoya will perform the ending theme "Kimi no Iru Machi" as Haruto Kirishima.
The anime will premiere on TV Tokyo on July 13 and air every Saturday at 11:30 p.m. Shigeyasu Yamauchi (Casshern Sins, Dream Eater Merry) is directing the anime at Gonzo, and Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Bakuman.) is in charge of the scripts.
