The official Twitter account for original video anime of Hiromi Takashima's Kase-san and Morning Glories (Asagao to Kase-san.) manga revealed a new visual for the anime on Wednesday. Character designer Kyuta Sakai drew the visual, which will be in the 52-page pamphlet sold at the screenings (among other character goods).
The anime will debut on June 9 in theaters in Japan.
The new anime's staff remains mostly the same from the staff who worked on the five-minute animated clip of the manga that debuted in May. Kazuyuki Hashimoto (Cowboy Bebop, Summer Wars, Mai Mai Miracle) is replacing Yuka Hirama as art director, with Hirama now credited for concept boards. rionos is credited for music. Yui Yamada (as voiced by Minami Takahashi) and Tomoka Kase (Ayane Sakura) will perform the anime's theme song "Asu e no Tobira" (Door to Tomorrow). The song is a cover of the 2003 song of the same name by I WiSH.
Takashima serialized Kase-san and... 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. The manga began serializing in the LINE Manga app in March.
