posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The voice actress group StylipS will perform the opening theme song for the Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imōto ga Iru! (One of Them Is My Younger Sister!) television anime series. The voice actress group previously sang the ending theme song "StudyxStudy" (single pictured at right) for the High School DxD series and the opening theme song "Miracle Rush" for the Saki Episode of Side A series.
The four members of StylipS — Kaori Ishihara, Arisa Noto, Yui Ogura, and Maho Matsunaga, will appear at a stage event in Tokyo on July 29 along with the show's cast to promote the anime. StylipS member Kaori Ishihara will also star in the series as Konoe Tsuruma.
Taguchi's original light novels center around Shōgo Mikadono, the son of an industrial magnate named Kumagorō Mikadono who passed away. As a final wish, Kumagorō gave Shōgo a condition before Shōgo can inherit the family legacy — find a female mate at school. Shōgo transfers into a school to fulfill that condition. However, he learns that he has a younger sister who was separated at birth. He does not know what his long-lost sister looks like, but she happens to be one of the students at his new school.
Taguchi launched the light novel series in 2010, and the sixth volume shipped in March. Munenori Nawa (R-15, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu) will direct the series, and Go Zappa (Chocotto Sister, Koihime Musō) will be responsible for the series scripts. Kenichirou Katsura (Macross 7, ToHeart2) is adapting the original novel illustrations by CUTEG (Kokoro Connect manga) for animation. Katsura is also the chief animation director for the project at Studio Gokumi (Oda Nobuna no Yabō, Koe de Oshigoto).
