Voice actress Yukari Tamura's 24th single, "Himitsu no Tobira kara Ai ni Kite," ranked sixth on Oricon's February 3-9 ranking chart. This marks her 10th top-10 single. The single that features the No-Rin anime's opening theme has sold 15,129 copies since it shipped on February 5.
Tamura's 15th single, "Tomorrow," was her ninth to make the top ten on Oricon's weekly ranking charts.
Tamura (Galaxy Angel's Ranpha, Myself; Yourself's Shuri, Muromi-san's titular character) performs the single's title song as her No-Rin character Yuka "Yukatan" Kusakabe, the "cutest idol in the universe." She is also performing the series' insert song "Cordless Tere Phone" and the ending theme song "Mogitate Fruit Girls."
The television anime adapts Shiratori Shirow and illustrator Kippu's original romantic comedy light novel series. The series premiered in January.
The anime's cast remains unchanged from the drama CD. The show stars Shintarō Asanuma (Love Lab, Muromi-san) as Kōsaku Hata, a student and idol otaku at Tamo Agricultural High School (Tamo Nōrin Kōkō, shortened to No-Rin). 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.
