Television network TBS' Comic Market 85 booth revealed this week that Shigeyuki Miya (Blood Lad, Buzzer Beater) will direct the television anime adaptation of Ruri Miyahara's Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou manga at anime studio Brains Base. TBS also screened a promotional video for the anime at the event.
Miyahara's "adolescent comedy with 3/10ths love and 7/10ths humor" revolves around Usa Kazunari, a boy who is now living alone thanks to his parents' job transfer. However, his new Kawai-Sō apartment complex is filled with only odd perverts. And yet, Ritsu Kawai, a sempai he adores, also happens to live there….
Miyahara launched the manga in Young King Ours in 2010, and Shonengahosha published the fourth compiled volume in Japan on May 30. The title literally means "We Are All From Kawai-Sō," but it is a wordplay that sounds like "We Are All Pitiful."
