The American branch of Nippon Ichi Software (NIS) announced on Wednesday that it acquired the Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara (If Her Flag Breaks) television anime. NIS America plans a retail release in North America, and Crunchyroll is already streaming the anime, which premiered in Japan on Wednesday.
Touka Takei's original romantic comedy light novel series revolves around Sōta Hatate, a boy who has the unique ability to see "Flags" above the heads of other people. The "Flags" mark critical crossroads in people's lives — when the choices they make will determine love, friendship, victory, and even death. He transfers into Tokyo's elite Hatagaya Academy, but instead of living by himself in the boys' dormitory, he ends up living with five beautiful girls under one roof.
The series stars:
|Ryota Ohsaka as Sōta Hatate||Ibuki Kido as Nanami Knight Bladefield|
|Ai Kayano as Akane Mahōgasawa||Kana Asumi as Kikuno Shōkanji|
|Kana Hanazawa as Megumu Tōzokuyama||Yōko Hikasa as Rin Eiyūzaki|
|Ayaka Suwa as Ruri Ninjabayashi||Aoi Yūki as Serika Ginyūin|
Ayumu Watanabe (Space Brothers) is directing the anime off scripts supervised by Takashi Aoshima (Kotoura-san, Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily). Shizue Kaneko (Mysterious Girlfriend X) is designing the characters. The anime is being produced by Hoods Entertainment (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Manyū Hiken-chō). Aoi Yūki performs the opening theme song.
