Eromanga Sensei Anime Gets 'Big Announcement' on Tuesday

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The staff for the anime of Tsukasa Fushimi's light novel series Eromanga Sensei announced on Sunday that the anime will have a "big announcement" during a Nico Nico Live stream on Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. JST. The stream page hints at the announcement with the text "Eromanga Sensei won't end with just the anime adaptation?!"

It further hints that the anime is just the first part of a larger project to celebrate Fushimi's 10 year anniversary since his debut.

The Eromanga Sensei "new sibling romantic comedy" revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author in high school. Masamune's little sister is Sagiri, a shut-in girl who hasn't left her room for an entire year. She even forces her brother to make and bring her meals when she stomps on the floor. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room, because the two of them are each other's only family.

Masamune's novel illustrator, penname "Eromanga Sensei," draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator, and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed that his "Eromanga Sensei" is his own younger sister. To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shōjo manga creator becomes their rival.

Akane Fujita (Mahō Shōjo Nante Mō Ii Desu Kara.'s Yuzuka Hanami) will play Sagiri Izumi in the anime. Fujita is reprising the role from an earlier visual drama that was broadcast on Nico Nico.

Shinichiro Kashiwada will serve as the producer of the project, and Aniplex and A-1 Pictures will produce the anime.

Fushimi launched the light novel series in 2013 after finishing the Oreimo (Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) light novel series, which also inspired an anime. As with Oreimo, Hiro Kanzaki draws the illustrations for Eromanga Sensei.
