Gakuen Babysitters Anime Premieres in January
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account for the television anime adaptation of Hari Tokeino's Gakuen Babysitters manga announced on Friday that the anime will premiere in January. A flyer at AnimeJapan 2017 in March had stated that the series would premiere in the first quarter of 2018. The series will air on Tokyo MX, BS11, and Animax.
Shūsei Morishita is directing the anime at animation studio Brains Base. Yuuko Kakihara (Chihayafuru 2, Orange) is handling series composition, Satoshi Motoyama (Aho-Girl, Skip Beat!) is serving as sound director, and Mina Ōsawa (sub-character designer/chief animation director on Kiss Him, Not Me) is designing the characters.
The manga centers on the brothers Ryūichi and Kotarō Kashima. Ryūichi is in high school and Kotarō is still a toddler. After their parents are killed in a plane crash, the two brothers find themselves living with the chairwoman of the Morinomiya Academy, who herself lost her son and daughter-in-law in the same accident. The chairwoman, however, has one stipulation for the brothers in order to live with her: Ryūichi has to work at the academy's daycare center as a babysitter.
