Kase-san Yuri Manga's Poster Lists Animators

posted on 2017-03-21 05:45 EDT by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The yuri manga event Yuriten 2017 revealed a poster for Hiromi Takashima's Kase-san and... yuri manga series on Saturday. The poster credits Takuya Satō (Girls Beyond the Wasteland, Say "I love you.") as director, and Kyuta Sakai (Steins;Gate, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) for "sakuga," which can mean 'animator" in the context of animation production.

While the poster's credits and the people listed indicate staff positions for an anime, no anime adaptation of the manga has been announced yet. The event allows attendees to take photographs.

The manga follows a romance between "the clumsy, flower-adoring Yamada and the exuberant Kase-san, their school's track and field star." Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in North America, and it describes the story:

Yamada may be shy and rather clumsy, but the flower gardens at her school have always brought her happiness. Suddenly, a different sort of beauty catches her eye—the vivacious track star, Kase-san. Although the two girls don't seem to have much in common, they soon start a romance where each must learn an important lesson in tending their budding relationship. Can the two girls, so different from each other, learn how to make their first love blossom?

Takashima serialized the manga in Shinshokan's yuri manga anthology Hirari until the magazine ceased publication in 2014. The series is ongoing on Shinshokan's Web Wings online manga platform. Shinshokan published Kase-san and Morning Glories (Asagao to Kase-san.) in 2012, followed by Obentō to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Bento) in 2012 and Shortcake to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Shortcake) in 2015. Seven Seas Entertainment released Kase-san and Morning Glories on February 28.
