Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the television anime adaptation of Cherry Arai's Mikakunin de Shinkōkei comedy manga under the title Engaged to the Unidentified. Crunchyroll will stream the series on Thursdays starting on January 9 at 9:45 a.m. EST for premium members in the United States and Canada. Free users in the United States and Canada will be able to watch new episodes one week later.
The show centers on first-year high school student Kobeni Yonomori. On her 16th birthday, a young man with little presence named Hakuya Mitsumine and his little sister Mashiro suddenly appear in front of her. It turns out that Hakuya is her fiancé, and Mashiro is her future sister-in-law. The three (and Konbeni's big sister Benio) start living together underneath the same roof, and hilarious happenings occur.
The show's cast includes:
Haruka Terui (background characters in NAKAIMO, Tamako Market) as Kobeni Yonomori, the "ultimate average high school first-year student." She handles the cooking and all other household chores.
Yuri Yoshida as Mashiro Mitsumine, Hakuya's little sister.
Yoshiyuki Fujiwara (GJ Club) is directing the series off of scripts by Fumihiko Shimo (Air, Clannad). Ai Kikuchi (Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin, Iron Man) is serving as character designer and chief animation director. Dogakobo is animating the series.
The series will premiere on January 8 on Japan's ABC station.
