posted on 2017-06-29 04:15 EDT by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for the Just Because! original anime project began streaming a new version of its first promotional video on Thursday. While the footage from the first video remains the same, the video now reveals the anime's October premiere date on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, and AT-X.

The site describes the story:

It is winter of their third year of high school, near the end of the second semester, when students have very little time in high school left. Everyone was just waiting for graduation.

Until he suddenly came home.

He was their classmate in middle school who had moved far away. He transferred in at a peculiar time, which reunited them. It was as if a go signal rang out to the feelings of the students who had just thought to end their high school life without fanfare.

Atsushi Kobayashi (Girls & Panzer storyboards, episode director) is directing the anime at PINE JAM, with Hajime Kamoshida (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) as the scriptwriter and Kiseki Himura (Sword Art Online: Progressive manga, Tawawa on Monday) as the original character designer. Hiroyuki Yoshii (Tawawa on Monday) is adapting the character designs for animation. Singer-songwriter Nagi Yanagi (A Lull in the Sea, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Bakemonogatari) is credited as music producer, and Keisuke Fukunaga (Tawawa on Monday) is credited as producer.

A website briefly opened about a new anime by the two main creators on April Fools' Day, but Gekkan's Megami Magazine revealed on April 28 that the new anime is real.
