The official website for the anime adaptation of Shiratori Shirow and illustrator Kippu's No-Rin romantic comedy light novel series began streaming the first promotional video for the anime on Saturday. The video features narration by protagonist Kōsaku Hata, who describes his life at the agricultural high school where he studies alongside his handsome, bespectacled best friend Kei and his doting childhood friend Minori.
The cast remains unchanged from the drama CD. The show will star Shintarō Asanuma as Kōsaku Hata, a student and idol otaku at Tamo Agricultural High School (Tamo Nōrin Kōkō, shortened to No-Rin). Yukari Tamura plays Ringo Kinoshita, a new transfer student who recently retired as the idol Yuka Kusakabe.
Shin Oonuma (WATAMOTE, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) is directing the series at SILVER LINK (WATAMOTE, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Dusk maiden of Amnesia). Michiko Yokote (Genshiken Second Season, Princess Tutu, xxxHOLiC) is in charge of series composition and Masahito Onoda (Student Council's Discretion Level 2) is adapting Kippu's original character designs.
The anime will premiere in January.
